1951 -52

The following editorial by Tom Williams, then owner and editor of the Jackson Herald was printed in the July 19, 1951 edition of the Jackson Herald.

 

“We extend a hearty welcome to the organization of a Lions Club in Jefferson.  With an enrollment of 23 active local men the club should make notable accomplishments for the community.

The work of the Lions club in the United States and of the International organization in 25 other countries is well known.  Six objectives of these clubs tell the story of what they are actually accomplishing in the world.

 

-To create and foster a spirit of “generous consideration” among the peoples of the world through study of the problems of international relationship.

-To promote the theory and practice of the principles of good government and good citizenship.

-To take an active interest in the civic, commercial, social and moral welfare of the community.

-To unite the members in bonds of friendship, good fellowship and mutual understanding.

-To provide a forum for the full and free discussion of all matters of public interest, partisan politics and sectarian religion alone excepted.

-To encourage efficiency and promote high ethical standards in business and professions; provided that no club shall hold out as one of its objectives, financial benefits to its members.

 

          The greatest field of Lions’ endeavor is in connection with health and welfare and boys and girls.  In no less than 44,696 instances, Lions Clubs last year carried out projects making their communities more attractive, more active commercially, better known and better places in which to live.

          In this area we have seen the successful promotion of Lions Clubs in Commerce, Winder, Athens and Gainesville.  With the addition of a new club in Jefferson the circuit is complete.  We will look forward to the activities and community service of this group.”

 

          On July 2, 1951 the first meeting of the Jefferson Lions Club was held in the Community Club House.  Future meeting dates were to be held on the first and third Monday nights of each month at the Community Club House.

          Officers and directors for the new club were elected at their second meeting held on July 16.  To serve on the board of directors were Lions: Jack Davidson, Bob Seymour, G.T. Kesler, Alfred Tolbert, Leonard Drowns and Edmond Garrison.

The Jefferson Club was sponsored by the Athens Club.

          Lion J.W. Henry, president of the Athens Lions Club presided over the meeting.  Approximately 100 Lions, their wives, officers of Lions International and guest were present.  Lion Carswell made the principle speech, giving a history and background of Lions International.

          The program and evening events were a constant series of action promoted by the “Tail Twister” who was introduced by Lions International representative “Scottie” Currie.

          Charter night ended with entertainment by Miss Jean Ferguson accompanied by Mrs. Mary Ferguson.  Miss Ferguson performed a novelty tap dance and was followed with novelty songs by the Whitehead sisters and the Brewers.  Charter night was arranged by Program chairman Lion Edmond Garrison.  Lion Garrison and his committee were highly praised for the success of the program.

          As the year progressed several projects were adopted.  The most noted being the annual “broom sale” and the basketball game, Lions versus Rotary Club that became known as the “grudge match”.  Proceeds went to the Lighthouse for the Blind and the Jefferson Christmas Cheer fund.  Later the annual talent show was begun.

Note:  When one of the Jefferson Lions Club members had a birthday fall on one of Jefferson Lions Club regular meeting nights the club would buy a birthday cake for that person and make them wear a funny looking straw hat.  Everyone would sing “Happy Birthday” to him and then they would take a picture to put in the newspaper.  That year Lion Jack Legg, Second Vice President, just happen to have been born on the 26th of September which was the same night at the Lions regular meeting night.  They call it “Put on the Dog”.
