Celebrating its centennial, Lions Clubs International gathered in Chicago for this important milestone. Lions Clubs International (LCI) is an international secular, non-political service organization founded by Melvin Jones in 1917. As of April 2015, it had over 46,000 local clubs and more than 1.4 million members in over 200 countries around the world. Headquartered in Oak Brook, Illinois (a suburb of Chicago), the organization aims to meet the needs of communities on a local and global scale. Lions Club German selected GMS to organize educational and popular tours of the Windy City for the diverse participants. With all that this beautiful city has to offer, Lions Club could not have picked a more fitting backdrop for its 100th anniversary celebrations. There were “lions,” some in colorful local dress of the country they represented, on every corner for the few days they got to spend in Chicago. Chicago and Chicagoans rolled the red carpet in every way possible. Weather could not have been nicer and Chicagoans were clearly proud to have an organization of this caliber in their midst. GMS was honored to have been selected to showcase the city to such a distinguished group of luminaries. GMS is looking forward to once again play host to the Lions next year when they head to Las Vegas.
