Lions Club of Ardmore, Founders Club:
Lions clubs have an illustrious history dating to
1917. Lions Club began in Chicago when Melvin Jones invited
a group of businessmen to Dallas and presented the idea of a service club.
The club was to provide service as a group without regard to politics, religion,
or race. A conference of some 25 clubs met in Dallas on June 7, 1917.
Ardmore was one of those clubs!
For 100 years Lions commitment to serving those in need has never wavered,
although the ways in which Lions clubs serve their communities have evolved to
keep pace with an ever-changing world. Our 1.4 million members perform valuable
service in 210 countries and geographic areas (these statistics are from the LCI

The Slogan is
The royal colors of purple and gold were selected
as the official colors when the association was organized in 1917. Purple
stands for loyalty to friends and for integrity of mind and heart. Gold
symbolized sincerity of purpose, liberality in judgment, purity in life, and
generosity in mind, heart and purse to those in need.
The legal name of the association is "The
International Association of Lions Clubs". It's entirely proper, however,
to use the shorter form of "Lions Clubs International".
The current Lion emblem was adopted at the 1919
convention. Today, Lions throughout the world are recognized by it.
It consists of a gold letter "L"
on a circular purple (or blue) field. Bordering this is a circular gold
area with two Lion profiles facing away from the center. The word "Lions"
appears at the top, and "International" at the bottom. The Lions face both
past and future - showing both pride of heritage and confidence in the future.
Always wear your Lions emblem pin proudly. And, since it's a registered
trademark in most countries, remember it may never be used for commercial or
fundraising purposes without prior permission from the Legal Division at
