Programs and projects change over time. After World War II, as car ownership in the United States increased and new roads sprung up, clubs nationwide, alarmed by a spike in driving deaths, worked with police chiefs on traffic safety. Today many clubs tackle environmental projects, a preoccupation that would have befuddled Lions of long ago.Yet Lions today are unchanged in focusing on sight, youth and basic community needs. The real change today is not so much what as who and how. Lions today are more inclusive, more focused on national and international problems and less likely to adopt traditional club meetings and practices. In today’s global village, Lions are eager to roam outside traditional boundaries and leave their mark in new and distinctive ways.
