About Lions International

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 businessman'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.

In 2017 Lions Club International (LCI) celebrated its Centennial year.  That Is 100 Years Of Service!   LCI has over 1,400,000 members in 47,880 clubs that span 200+ countries and geographic locations worldwide.  It is the largest service organization in the world.  As part of its Centennial year celebration, LCI issued a Centennial Service Challenge to all Lions Clubs.

Prescott Noon Lions (PNL) is proud to be part of this long tradition of service.  PNL embraced the Centennial Service Challenge with activities for relieving hunger, engaging our youth, sharing the vision and protecting our environment.  To learn more about the PNL’s Centennial Challenge click here.

About Our Club

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 over 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.
