Tiverton Lions Club Community Service Scholarship

In 1978, Past President Henri J. Pare formed the Tiverton Lions Scholarships Program to
recognize Tiverton/Little Compton Seniors who have shown not only good academic skills
but “outstanding community service”, as the Lions motto is “We Serve”. These funds are to
assist the honoree as they go on to college. Henri had been a member of the Tiverton Lions
from 1964-2016. The club formally changed the name of the scholarship to the “Henri J. Pare
Memorial Scholarship Program” in honor of his outstanding dedication to Lionism.

It is in this spirit the Tiverton Lions Club Charities, Inc. will award a scholarship to a
graduating high school senior who lives in Tiverton or Little Compton with special emphasis
on their “community services”.

There are currently over 1.4 million Lions Club members around the world.
The Lions Club International motto is “WE SERVE”.
