About Us

In this club, we take the Lion’s motto, “We Serve”, very seriously.

Tewksbury Lions Club is a 501C3 Charitable Organization. In 1917, Melvin Jones made a proposal to a group of businessmen and friends in Chicago. The idea was that they be of service to their fellow man, without any hope of personal gain. This resulted in the founding of the organization to be known as the Lion’s Club.

In 1925, the featured speaker at the annual Lion’s convention was Helen Keller. She challenged the Lions to become “Knights of the Blind” and to play an active role in the battle against blindness. Today, the words “sight” and “Lions” have become interwoven and Lions International has become the largest service organization in the world.

Where There’s a NEED, There’s a LION

Whenever a Lions club gets together, problems get smaller. And communities get better. That’s because we help where help is needed – in our own communities and around the world – with unmatched integrity and energy.

The World’s Largest Service Club Organization

Our 46,000 clubs and 1.4+ million members make us the world’s largest service club organization. We’re also one of the most effective. Our members do whatever is needed to help their local communities. Everywhere we work, we make friends. With children who need eyeglasses, with seniors who don’t have enough to eat and with people we may never meet.
