About Lions International
About Our Club

The Lions Club was founded in 1917 by Melvin Jones. He was the Secretary of a local businessman's club when he was asked, "What if these men's talents could be put to work in unselfish service to others?" Starting in 1916, he began to write to other businessmen's clubs soliciting their comments on forming a national club. Despite some responses to essentially "mind his own business", he persisted in his efforts and on June 17th, 1917, twenty delegates representing 27 clubs from various parts of the country met to form what is now known as Lions Clubs International.

The Lions Club Motto:   We Serve.

Lions Seal

Chartered on June 15th, 1949, in Multiple District 21-A, the Prescott Noon Lions Club was sponsored by the Glendale (AZ) Lions Club. The Club now belongs to Multiple District 21-C which has six regions and 0ver 4300 members.

Members of the Prescott Noon Lions Club meet every Wednesday to socialize and enlist member participation in various activities in Prescott and Yavapai County that benefit local charities and organizations that service sight and hearing impaired local citizens, as well as other worthy causes in our area. Our always-present newspaper recycling bins, serviced by member- staffed paper recycling crews meeting twice a week at our recycling facility have resulted in over $200,000 in yearly donations in past years. Food booths, pancake breakfasts and other fund-raising efforts throughout the year allow our members to proudly serve our community. With male Lions Club membership and female Lioness Club membership, we can give back to our community and enjoy a lively social gathering with our fellow members.

Regular club meetings are held every Wednesday at Plaza Bonita restaurant in Prescott from noon to 1 PM
