The Blue Island Lions Club held a yearly parade on the 4th of July. The theme for this parade was Space: the final frontier. The Lions sold buttons along the parade route to raise funds to continue to put on the 4th of July parades and festivities.
Space: the final frontier, is a phrase made popular by the television and movie series, Star Trek. Space is considered the final frontier because it is massive and it is believed that during the lifetime of humans, we cannot fully explore or catalog all of space. The phrase comes from previous frontiers in history such as the exploration of the continents and the oceans.
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.
