Ormond Beach Lions Club
Lions Clubs International, a service membership organization of 1.4 million members in 208 countries worldwide, was founded in the United States on June 7, 1917 by Melvin Jones, a Chicago businessman. Jones asked, with regard to his colleagues, “What if these men, who are successful because of their drive, intelligence and ambition, were to put their talents to work improving their communities?” Jones' personal code, “You can't get very far until you start doing something for somebody else,” reminds many Lions of the importance of community service. The Lions motto is......“We Serve.”
The Ormond Beach Lions Club was founded on November 8, 1954. We celebrated 60 years of service to our community in November 2014. We conduct from 4 to 6 fundraising events annually, to raise funds to assist those who are sight impaired, have hearing problems or diabetes. These include: our Annual Golf Tournament, and multiple Fall and Spring White Cane Solicitations, We also sponsor several programs at Seabreeze High School and the Ormond Middle School, in an effort to encourage community service among our community's young. We welcome new members who are interested and committed to helping those in our community who are less fortunate. Club membership is open to all.
The Ormond Lions meet the fourth Wednesday of each month, September through June, at 6 PM, at Mario's Restaurant, located at 521 S. Yonge Street in Ormond Beach. No meetings are held in July and August.
