Vermont’s Lions District, D-45
The Lions Clubs of Vermont are civic organizations of volunteers serving the communities of the State of Vermont. Lions Clubs worldwide took up sight conservation as their major goal after a speech by Helen Keller at the Lions Convention in 1925. At the time, Helen Keller challenged the Lions to become " Knights of the Blind", a challenge that has become a rallying cry for Lions projects around the world.
Our 45,000 clubs and 1.3 million members make us the world’s largest service club organization.
