The Conroe Noon Lions Club is proud to present Ken’s – ‘kids on the lake’ – an annual fishing tournament for special needs children. This event is presented in honor of its founder Lion Ken Albertson who, along with Lion Pat McPherson came up with the idea in 1993. ‘kids on the lake’ gives parents and their special needs child time to enjoy the beauty of the water, the wonder of the great outdoors with the thrill of catching ‘the big one’! Lion volunteers assist children with fishing, canoeing, games and loads of fun! Now located at Camp Owen, next to the Conroe YMCA there are plenty of activities for a wonderful day. Participants and parents are also treated to a hamburger & hot dog lunch and every child goes home a winner!
Who we are
Lions Clubs International will celebrate its 100th Anniversary on June 17, 2017. In 1917, Melvin Jones and a group of businessmen in Chicago, Illinois to put their talents to work improving their communities. Lions International grew rapidly throughout the country and in 1925, Helen Keller gave a speech at the Lions Clubs International convention and challenged Lions to be “…knights of the blind.” The Lions motto is “We Serve.”
The Conroe Lions Club was chartered in 1939 with a group of 25 business men dedicated to improving their growing community. In 1986, the club changed its name to the Conroe Noon Lions Club and has since grown to be the 2nd largest club in the USA and is a beacon of service to the Conroe area. In 1995, the Conroe Noon Lions Club Charities Inc. became a non-profit corporation registered under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.
From its early beginnings the club heeded the call of Helen Keller. With that inspiration, the clubs’ major service project is an extensive Sight Program, which provides eye exams & eyeglasses for needy school aged children from some 18-area schools. The Conroe Noon Lions will spend approximately $20,000 to support this one program. The club supports other Sight Conservation efforts through the Leader Dog Program, the Lighthouse for the Blind, Lions Eye Bank of Texas and the World Services for the Blind. Recently the club opened the Conroe Noon Lions Club Recycling Center; a facility which cleans, sorts, categorizes, and repairs donated used eyeglasses that are distributed by various mission and relief agencies all over the world. A very active Sight Awareness Committee conducts community projects such as vision screenings, glaucoma screenings, used eyeglass collections and other local vision-centered events.
The Conroe Noon Lions continue to support the youth of our area through projects like ‘kids on the lake’-a fishing tournament for special needs children. Along with Lions Clubs around the state of Texas, we support the Texas Lions Camp in Kerrville. The camp provides special camping sessions for children with physical disabilities and diabetes at no cost to their families. Other youth oriented projects include: Reaves Elementary—Adopt A School, drug awareness programs, youth scholarship contests, peace poster contests, scholarships to area seniors, along with sponsoring the Conroe High School LEO Club. The motto of Lions International is “We Serve” and the Conroe Noon Lions Club and its members are committed to service in their community, their country and their world.
