WELCOME TO THE BEST SERVICE GROUP IN THE WORLD

Lions Clubs International is the largest and most effective community service organization in the world. Marshalltown Iowa Noon Lions Club is one of 46,260 clubs in 193 countries with 1.4 million members.

Regardless of the location of the club, all Lions are dedicated to seeking out and helping those in need.

Lions Clubs International was founded in 1917 by Melvin Jones, who saw successful men and women working together to create a better community, nation, and world to foster a spirit of understanding, tolerance, and good will in every community on earth.

Four years later, in 1921, the Marshalltown Lions joined that rapidly growing organization. In 1925, Helen Keller challenged the Lions to become Knights of the Blind. They accepted to lead the crusade against blindness, visual impairment and deafness.

The University of Iowa asked the Lions Clubs of Iowa for financial support to start the Eye Bank and the Cochlear Implant Center. They agreed. Both are highly successful and Iowa Lions Foundation continues to support these programs.
