Please join us for the 2018 27-A1 District Convention on January 19, 2018 - January 21, 2018. As always there will be a variety of interesting sessions to expand your knowledge, a celebration like no other and fellowship with some of the most generous and giving people we have the privilege of knowing.
This year we will remember that Lions "Rock" now and throughout the last 100 years. Since it's inception, Rock and Roll has evolved from Doo Wop in the 50's, to the British Invasion of the Beatles in the 60's, to Janis Joplin and Jimi Hendrix in the 70's, to the birth of MTV with bands like U2 in the 80's, to alternative rock Nirvana in the 90's, to Nicelback in the 2000's and finally bringing us current with bands like Lincoln Park and Disturbed.
Lions Clubs international has evolved along with some of the music that we love and cherish:
In 1956 "The Detroit Lions Club gives 6-year-old Stevie Wonder a Christmas gift – a drum set."
In 1968 "The Lions Clubs International Foundation (LCIF) is established. Since its founding, LCIF has given more than US$826 million in grants to support the humanitarian work of Lions."
In 1977 "Lion Jimmy Carter, a peanut farmer from Georgia, becomes president of the United States of America."
In 1987 "The association amends its bylaws and invites women to become members. Women are now the fastest growing segment of new members."
In 1990 "SightFirst is launched, eventually raising more than $415 million dollars to help eradicate major causes of blindness."
In 2002 "Lions charter two clubs in China, the nation's first voluntary membership group since the 1950s."
In 2017 "Lions celebrate their 100th anniversary and first century of service!"
Come and celebrate another amazing year for the Lions Club District 27-A1 and we share stories of the past, applaud the accomplishments of the present and share ideas for the future.
