The Lion’s Club is a secular organization dedicated to improving communities around the world. The Blue Island, IL chapter founded on December 18th, 1922, filled dual roles within the community as both a businessmen’s luncheon club and chamber of commerce. They were known for hosting an annual celebration event for the 4th of July. In 1983, to celebrate the sixtieth anniversary of the chapter, the theme of the event was “The Roaring 20s”, taking guests back in time to the decade when the chapter was founded. This theme encourages guests to don their most glamorous apparel, such as beaded flapper dresses, or tuxedos and top hats.
