Founded on December 17th, 1920, the Atlanta Lions Club has the unique distinction of being the first Lion’s club in Georgia. Our club has a rich history of 95-plus years of SERVICE. Years ago we were a club of 150+ members. Unfortunately, almost all of those members have passed on, but their legacy remains with us.
- In 1949 the Atlanta Lions Club along with the Moultrie and Albany Lions created the Georgia Lions Lighthouse for the Blind.
- In 1968 the Atlanta Lions Club was instrumental in the creation of the Peach Bowl and now known as the Chick-Fil-A Peach Bowl.
- In 1980 the Atlanta Lions Club donations helped for the first corneal transplant to be performed on an infant.
Our Club Today
Today, we are a club of 20+ members looking for new members eager to share energy, exchange thought and fellowship, and serve in the roots of our Atlanta community. The Atlanta Lions Club represents the neighborhoods of midtown and downtown Atlanta, including the Old Fourth Ward and Westside communities. While honoring the Club’s history and past accomplishments, we like to say “we’re just starting” meaning we’re rebuilding the club membership and establishing a new foundation of community service. We invite you to review our Club events and new releases as a way of learning where we are serving today.
“We serve” says it all.
