Past District Governor for the Lions Club Richard Mosher spoke to the Natchitoches Lions Club at its meeting March 20. A Lions Club member for 32 years, Mosher is a member of the Bossier City Lions Club, which with 115 members, is the biggest club in the state.

Mosher spoke about how Lions Club is the largest organization in the world with over 4 million members in 200 plus countries. The club was founded by Melvin Jones of Arizona in 1917. The first convention was held in Dallas in 1917. With a motto of “We Serve” its goal is to eliminate blindness in the world. This goal was adopted in 1925 after an inspiring address given at a national convention in 1925.

“I love this organization,” he said. “I think it makes a difference around the world.”
