The thought of channelizing the service to the needy people in the society in the hearts of philanthropists in the local area has resulted in the formation of Lions Club of Lakshmipuram, in the year 2007.
The initiative to realize the ambition sprang from Lion T. Jayakumar, Lion E R Sundar, Lion Aatheesan and Lion Malar Karunanidhi. Our parent club – Lions Club of Chromepet West sponsored the new venture. Under the guidance of Extn Chair MJF Lion S. Abdul Rahim, Extn. Chair MJF Lion M. Raju and Guiding Lion MJF Lion S. Shanmugam, Lakshmipuram Charter of Lions Clubs International attached to Lions District 324 A6 was born on 18th December 2007 with 16 charter members. The event was enhanced in its glory by the valuable presence of the noble Governor PMJF Lion Kamala Mahadevan.
The aims of the new initiative were set as improvising the lives of the poor citizens of the area by helping their children to pursue their education by procuring necessary inputs such as books and note books, writing articles and uniforms, paying their school fees etc. and recognizing the needs of the elders especially the deserted ladies by starting a pension scheme for their benefit.
Our club was one of the active participants in the “Planting 10million Trees” event and continue to play our role in saving environment.
Ln. Virumandi (President), Ln. Shreejawahar (Secretary) and Ln. Jayakumar (Treasurer) are serving as current PSTs and leading the club to excellence.
