Celebrating 100 Years of Lionism in Wisconsin

MD27 Centennial Logo-Revised 6-15-2020.j


     The Wisconsin Lions Centennial Committee held its first meeting in February 2020 to begin planning a celebration of 100 years of Wisconsin Lionism. Seventeen interested Lions attended that meeting at the Lions Pride Office. Each District appointed at least one Lion to serve on this Committee.  The Committee has identified multiple goals to help celebrate our 100 years of service.  Of these the committee decided to produce a 100 year centennial magazine to be made available at the 2021 MD27 Convention in Green Bay. The magazine included Wisconsin Lions history with an emphasis to highlight the first nine clubs chartered in Wisconsin from June 1921 through May 1922. 

The magazine highlights the first nine clubs formed in Wisconsin.  They are:

Milwaukee Central Lions Club

Green Bay Downtown Lions Club

Manitowoc Lions Club

Sheboygan Evening Lions Club

Fond du Lac Noon Lions Club

Appleton Noon Lions Club

Wausau Lions Club

Madison Central Lions Club

Janesville Noon Lions Club

The Wisconsin Lions Centennial Magazine is loaded with valuable history from the past 100 years.  Listed below are the articles from numerous Lions projects that have taken place in addition to the write-ups from the first nine clubs that are listed above.  To obtain your copy of this magazine, contact the State Office at md27@wisconsinlions.orgCopies are $5 plus shipping.
