Brief History of Lions

Kirkwood Lion's Club serves Kirkwood, Crestwood, Des Peres, Sunset Hills, and Glendale, Missouri

On June 30, 1925, Keller addressed the Lions Clubs International Convention in Cedar Point, Ohio, USA.  She challenged Lions to become "knights of the blind in this crusade against darkness." (Click here to view her entire speech.)  She said, "I am your opportunity.  I am knocking at your door."

In 2016 Lions International celebrated their 100th anniversary.  The Kirkwood Lions are only ten years younger with our 90th anniversary in 2016!

We enjoy getting together, having fun, and coming up with ways to raise money to give away!
