Health & Welfare Updates

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 significant portion of the funds raised by LCIF comes through the Melvin Jones Fellowships received each year. The Easton Lions club honors our most dedicated and generous members through this fellowship each year.  

Below is a list of Easton Lions members honored to date.

The fellowship is named as a tribute to the founder of Lions Clubs International, Melvin Jones. 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.
 
As part of the induction into the Melvin Jones Fellowship, the name of the individual will be added to the official fellowship record. From the time of the presentation forward, the name of the individual will be displayed on a computerized plaque in the LCIF Recognition Room at International Headquarters.
 
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 also 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.
