Where there is a need, there is a Lion!

The World’s largest Service Club With over 46,000 clubs and 1.35 million members; we’re one of the most effective service clubs. 100% of funds raised goes to charities. Helen Keller attended one of our first conventions and asked the Lion’s to be ambassadors of eyesight, which we have become.

Mission Statement                                      

To empower volunteers to serve their communities, meet humanitarian needs, encourage peace and promote international understanding through Lion’s Clubs.



Beginning in 1917, Melvin Jones, a 38 year old business man told members of local business clubs they should reach  beyond business issues and address betterment of 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.

While Lion’s Clubs Internationally seek eradication of blindness, we also contribute to other charities!

Inverness Lions works towards assisting those in Citrus County with vision needs.



Lions Clubs International is the world's largest service club organization with more than 1.4 million members in approximately 46,000 clubs in more than 200 countries and geographical areas around the world.
