In 2008, the Bloomfield Lions Club noticed a need to encourage local youth to become more involved in their community. Leaders from the Bloomfield Lions Club decided to start our own local Leos Club at Bloomfield Middle School & High School.

Today, our local Leos Club continues to partner with the Lions Club with service in the community, as well as working on their own projects. Which includes the annual "Pumpkin Smash" in late October, early November, support of Lions Club State Camp Badger in the Southern Tier, and the annual Memorial Day fundraiser.

The officers include:

  • President Luke Donohoe
  • Vice President Chris Donohoe
  • Finance Chair Emma Marking
  • Secretary Georgia Brick

LEOs Club History

Coach Jim Graver started the LEOs ball rolling in 1957 and chances are that ball was a baseball. Graver was the baseball coach of the Abington High School in Pennsylvania, USA, and an active member of the Glenside Lions Club.  With help from his fellow Lion, William Ernst, the first LEOs club was charted on December 5, 1957.

As the world's first LEOs club, the Abington High School Leo Club created the LEOs acronym – Leadership, Equality, Opportunity – and chose their school colors, maroon, and gold to serve as the LEOs club colors.  Later, Equality was changed to Experience.

In October 1967, the board of directors of Lions Clubs International adopted the LEOs Club Program as an official program of the association.

The LEOs Club Program has continued to grow within the last 50 years. Leos now constitute an international network of over 6,500 clubs in over 140 countries. Community service remains the cornerstone of the program, fostering a lifetime commitment to helping others. Like their Lion counterparts, Leo club members enjoy serving their neighbors and watching positive results unfold.
