The Lions Emblem




Our name was not selected at random, neither was it a coined name.  From time immemorial, the lion has been the symbol of all that was good, and because of the symbolism that was chosen.  Four outstanding qualities – Courage, Strength, Activity, and Fidelity – had largely to do with the adoption of the name.  The last mentioned of the qualities, Fidelity, has a deep and peculiar significance for all Lions.  The lion symbol has been a symbol of Fidelity through the ages and among all nations, ancient and modern.  It stands for loyalty to a friend, loyalty to a principle, nations, ancient and modern.  It stands for loyalty to a friend, loyalty to a principle, loyalty to a duty and loyalty to a trust.


The Lions Motto – We Serve


Mission Statement

            To empower volunteers to serve their communities, meet humanitarian needs, encourage peace and promote international understanding through Lions clubs.

Vision Statement

To be the global leader in community and humanitarian service.

Lions Clubs International Founder – MELVIN JONES

Melvin Jones was born on January 13, 1879 in Fort Thomas, Arizona, the son of a United States Army captain who commanded a troop of scouts. Later, his father was transferred and the family moved east. As a young man, Melvin Jones made his home in Chicago, Illinois, became associated with an insurance firm and in 1913 formed his own agency.  He soon joined the Business Circle, a businessmen's luncheon group, and was shortly elected secretary. This group was one of many at that time devoted solely to promoting the financial interests of their membership. Because of their limited appeal, they were destined to disappear. Melvin Jones, then a 38-year-old Chicago business leader, had other plans.  "What if these men," Melvin Jones asked, "who are successful because of their drive, intelligence and ambition, were to put their talents to work improving their communities?" Thus, at his invitation, delegates from men's clubs met in Chicago to lay the groundwork for such an organization and on June 7, 1917, Lions Clubs International was born.

            Melvin Jones eventually abandoned his insurance agency to devote himself full time to Lions at International Headquarters in Chicago. It was under his dynamic leadership that Lions clubs earned the prestige necessary to attract civic-minded members.  The association's founder was also recognized as a leader by those outside the association. One of his greatest honors was in 1945 when he represented Lions Clubs International as a consultant in San Francisco, California, at the organization of the United Nations.  Melvin Jones, the man whose personal code – "You can't get very far until you start doing something for somebody else" – became a guiding principle for public-spirited people the world over, died June 1, 1961 at 82 years of age.

2016 International Convention

The 99th Lions Clubs Annual International Convention will be held in Fukuoka City, Japan, for five days, from June 24th through June 28th, 2016. At the International Convention, a lot of members will come from all over the world and celebrate, get to know each other better and learn together. I hope it will serve as a good opportunity for members from overseas to experience Japanese society and culture, and ultimately find out about the Japan Lions Club in the world. A spirit of Lionism was created by Melvin Jones 100 years ago, and it has since charmed a mass of members around the world, becoming an immensely profound and broadening great river, thanks to considerable charitable works subsequently implemented. To participate in the International Convention in Japan is to purify yourself in such a great river. You will be able to discover something new in the river by having firsthand knowledge of the current conditions of Lions Clubs around the world.
