Richmond, Spring Grove to start new Lions club

RICHMOND – A push is underway to start a new Lions club for Richmond and Spring Grove.

A kick-off meeting will be at 7 p.m. Wednesday at Doyle’s Pub, at the corner of Mill Street and Route 12 in Richmond, according to news release from the Richmond/Spring Grove Chamber of Commerce.

John Landon, a member of the Crystal Lake Lions Club for more than 30 years, is leading the effort to create the new club. He said it made sense to draw members from both Richmond and Spring Grove. He hopes to recruit more than 20 members.

The organization helps the community, provides networking, leadership and education. For information, call the Chamber at 815-678-7742 or visit the Chamber’s website at www.rsgchamber.com.

Richmond’s previous Lions club was dissolved last year, said Laura Ferris, executive director of the Richmond/Spring Grove Chamber of Commerce.

Lions Clubs International is the world’s largest club service organization with 46,000 clubs and 1.35 million members.

It was founded in 1917 and is known for fighting blindness. However, the organization also performs volunteer work for many different kinds of community projects such as caring for the environment, feeding the hungry and aiding seniors and the disabled.
