BRIEF HISTORY OF THE LIONS MOVEMENT and the Lions Club Stara Zagora - Trakia

The Lions movement was first launched in 1917, when Chicago businessman Melvin Jones started to hold meetings of people with similar views, with the aim of carrying out initiatives for the betterment of their communities and establishing a humanitarian organization. On July 7th 1917, all these people got unified in Chicago, the USA, adopting the name “Club - Service”, and chose the lion for a logo of the organization as a symbol of power and courage.

Later, in 1920, the acronym LIONS (Liberty, Intelligence, Our Nation’s Safety) was adopted and WE SERVE as accepted as a fundamental slogan of the organization.
