Who are Lions?
  • The Essex Junction Lions Club is a civic
    organization of volunteers serving Essex Junction
    and the surrounding area.
  • Lions Clubs worldwide took up sight conservation
    as their major goal after a speech by Helen
    Keller at the Lions Convention in 1925. She
    challenged the Lions to become "Knights of the
    Blind, a challenge that has become a rallying
    cry for Lions projects around the world.
  • Lions Clubs have 1.4 million members in 194
    countries.
