The Melvin Jones Fellowship was established in 1973 in response to Lions' requests for a way to extend their commitment to Lions Clubs International Foundation (LCIF) and to honor Melvin Jones, one of it's founder.  In 1917, Melvin Jones, a 38-year-old Chicago business leader, told members of his local business club they should reach beyond business issues and address the betterment of their communities and the world. Jones’ group, the Business Circle of Chicago, agreed and the Lions Club was born.

A donation made, in the name of the Easton Lions Club to the Lions Clubs International Foundation in the amount of $1000- will benefit the recognition of the individual. LCIF/ Fellowship donations are largely responsible for the successful launching the Lions’ aggressive global attack on preventable and curable blindness—the LCIF Sight First programs. Fellowship donations help fund long term reconstruction and relief projects following major disasters, such as the Haiti, Australia and Japan earthquakes as well as support for the tornado victims in the southern and midwestern sections of our country.    Donations also support vocational assistance programs that teach skills to disabled persons, giving them an opportunity to live productively and independently.

The Easton Lions club honors our most dedicated and generous members through this fellowship each year. Designated as Lions Clubs International Foundation’s highest honor, the fellowship symbolizes the characteristics of individuals who are dedicated to humanitarian service. Those attributes are generosity, compassion, and concern for others. Below is a list of Easton Lions members honored to date.

New member(s) add this year will be announced in June.
