Lions Looking to Start SW Side Club

Members of Lions International are trying to generate interest in forming a Southwest Side Lions Club. They are inviting all adults to learn more about the group at a meeting set for 3 to 4:30 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 21 at the Archer Heights Branch Library, 5055 S. Archer.

The Chicago Southwest Lions Club will join the more than 50,000 Lions clubs in communities around the world. The new club is now seeking civic-minded men and women to join them in working together to meet needs within the community.

“Lions are people who want to help, who want to make a difference, and who want to have fun while doing it,” a club statement to the press said last week. “Lions give a lot to their communities, but they get back something that’s even more valuable – the satisfaction that comes from changing lives. In addition to providing hands-on support, Lions clubs give members an opportunity to advance worthy causes, serve with friends and become leaders in the community.”

For more information on becoming a charter member of the new club, contact Dan O’Reilly at or Mike Smigielski at

Lions International is the largest service club organization in the world. Its 1.4 million members in more than 50,000 clubs are serving communities in more than 200 countries and geographical areas around the globe.

Since 1917, Lions clubs have aided the blind and visually impaired, championed youth initiatives and strengthened local communities through hands-on service and humanitarian projects. Lions have targeted five main global causes: vision, diabetes, hunger, the environment and childhood cancer.
