Welcome to the Huntsville Pacesetters Lions Club of Huntsville, Alabama web page. The Huntsville Pacesetters Lions Club is a chapter of Lions Clubs International.

Lions Clubs International was founded in 1917 by Chicago businessman Melvin Jones. In his opinion a club should do more than promote the business of its members; it should service the community. He chose the name Lions Club because he was convinced that the lion stood for strength, courage, fidelity and vital action. Our motto is “We Serve”.

Since beginning with the first convention in Dallas, Texas in 1917, Lions Clubs International has grown to be the largest service club in the world. Today we have nearly 1.3 million members in almost 45,000 clubs in 197 countries and geographic areas. At the 1925 International Convention Helen Keller challenged the Lions to be “knights for the blind.” The Lions took on sight conservation as their major project but since that time have added many other service projects. Lions are recognized the world over for outstanding service to their communities and the world as a whole. In some places Lions are Little League Baseball, in some places they are the Volunteer Fire Department, and in others they are the scout troop.
