Lions All State Band

the Lions of Michigan in the annual parade at their international convention.

Lions International President from Michigan.  The Lions All State Band was

created and has appeared annually at conventions thereafter.



The Eversight Michigan Story:

    Eversight Michigan was founded in 1957 with a man’s dying wish: to donate his eyes so that others may see. That wish united University of Michigan ophthalmologist John W. Henderson, M.D., Ph.D., with Lions Clubs across the state to create a way for people to give the precious gift of sight – and the Michigan Eye-Bank was born.

Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation


    The primary objective of the Lions program is to reduce the number of new cases

of blindness caused by diabetic retinopathy through diabetes education, early

to conduct awareness activities during the month of November--Lions Diabetes

Education Month.
