Who are the Springfield Noon Lions?
 •  We are men and women in the Springfield area who have volunteered our time and resources to help our communities since 1919.
•  We are members of the largest service organization in the world.
•  We are your friends and neighbors.
 
 
What does the Springfield Noon Lions Club do?
In 1925 Helen Keller challenged Lions to be the Knights of the Blind.  Since then Lions around the world have helped the blind, visually impaired, and deaf communities.
 
Locally, the Springfield Noon Lions Club has been a proud supporter of
•  Mary Bryant Home for the Blind and Visually Impaired in Springfield,
•  Heartland Lions Eye Bank, 
•  St. Clare's Health Clinic, and
•  Camp Lions for Blind and Deaf Youth.
 
But that's not all!  The Springfield Noon Lions Club has provided thousands of dollars in local scholarships, helped local residents with special vision needs, assisted local visually impaired persons obtain service animals, collected thousands of old eye glasses for reuse, and hosted the Lions of Illinois Foundation vision and hearing screening buses.
 
If you want to help your community, join us in our efforts supporting these and other causes.  Call Paul Anthony at 217-725-4542.

Our History

 

The Springfield Noon Lions Club was born on October 2nd, 1919. At a meeting held on that date in the Leland Hotel under the Leadership of H.B. Hill, who served as president until June of 1921, the first beginnings of our club were recorded.

 

Simple Installation ceremonies and the exhibit of the charter for the first time took place at an evening meeting at the Leland Hotel on November 4, 1919. Secretary General Melvin Jones presented the charter and Field Secretaries Ira Quinby and A.P. Shaw of the International were present.

 

The orginal charter was dated October 31, 1919 and contained 26 names.
