WELCOME TO THE  GARDEN RIDGE  LIONS CLUB


Since 1917, Lions Clubs have offered people the opportunity to give something back to their communities. The Garden Ridge Lions Club began its commitment to service in 1973 and continues today by seeking out all forms of community need and developing ways to serve and satisfy those needs. “WE SERVE”.

Brief History of Our Lions Club International
In June of 1917, the Melvin Jones Business Circle of Chicago contacted several similar organizations and held their first convention in August in Dallas, TX. The first International Lions Club was established in Windsor, Ontario in 1920. In 1925, Helen Keller challenged the Lions to become the “Knights of the Blind”. Lions Club International had its major expansion between 1950-1970. Women were admitted to become Lions in 1987.


The World’s Largest Service Club Organization


Our 46,000 clubs and 1.35 million Lion members make us the world’s largest service club organization. We are also one of the most effective. Our members do whatever is needed to help their local communities. Everywhere we work, we make friends. With children who need eyeglasses, with seniors who don’t have enough to eat and with people we may never meet.

 

“Leadership, Experience, Opportunity.” That’s what makes a Leo! Members of Leo clubs embody the best qualities of our incredible organization. They are devoted young people who realize the power of action. Leo Club members are middle school, high school, and college age youth interested in giving back through community service! The Garden Ridge Lions Club sponsors a Leo Club at Grace Prep Academy in New Braunfels.  We hope to soon have a Leo Club at Danville Middle School and Davenport High School!
