Blue Island is a South suburb of Chicago, Illinois, adjacent to the city. The suburb was established in 1835 as a way station for travelers on the Vincennes Trace, a former cross-country trackway that passed through multiple states including Illinois, Indiana, and Kentucky. Blue Island has been a point of entry for immigrants since the 1840s. The city celebrated their 150th birthday in 1985 and were later chosen by the White House as part of the Preserve America communities.
The Lion's Club is a secular service club organization, founded in Oak Brook, Illinois, which promotes volunteerism, community involvement, and environmental awareness, amongst other things.
