  Welcome to the Lions Club of York which was founded on August 13, 1939.  We are part of Lions Club International which is the largest service club organization in the world, founded by Melvin Jones almost 100 years ago.

     LIONS is an acronym which stands for LIBERTY, INTELLIGENCE, OUR NATION’S SAFETY, and our Motto is “We Serve.” We support many worthwhile projects, with a key emphasis on sight preservation and eye research and providing sight and support for the blind.

     Our many worthwhile projects are the Lions/USA Eye Research Institute in Mobile, Alabama Lions Sight Conservation Association,  Camp Seale Harris, and support Southeastern Dogs for the Blind
