Lions International:

In 1917, Melvin Jones, a Chicago business leader, told members of his local business club they should reach beyond business issues and address the betterment of their communities and the world. Jones' group, the Business Circle of Chicago, agreed. Later that year an organizational meeting was held joining similar groups around the United States and what was to become Lions International was formed.  In 1925 Helen Keller addressed the Lions Clubs International Convention in Cedar Point, Ohio, and challenged the Lions to become "knights of the blind in the crusade against darkness."

Wellsville Lions Charities Inc.

Service began in 1942. Thirty men working together to live up to the Lions Motto:  "We Serve". Our primary focus is sight and giving back to the community while having fun. Since then, the club has generated in excess of $1,100,000 in donations in support of Lions activities.
