Addressing the Lions in 1925,
Helen Keller challenged them to become "Knights of the Blind in the Crusade against Blindness."
Today, with nearly 600 Clubs in Illinois, we continue to try to meet that challenge.

Candy Day was a success thanks to the public who greeted Lions & Lioness with open arms and their donations of support. Everybody knows the Lions, we are the community-based group that provides assistance to neighbors in need, promote and protect vision and hearing health, and work to enrich the assets of every town we are in. Remember Lions-

Mobile Screening Units In For The Winter

The Mobile screening units for vision and Macular Degeneration have ended another great season.
