What's New

With the completion of the Wounded Warrior Retreat cabin, the next phase is to construct a handicap accessible boat dock at East Beach of Lake Tholocco, Fort Rucker, Alabama.  

Thanks to all the support of the Enterprise and Fort Rucker communities, the fully ADA-compliant cabin at Lake Tholocco is complete.

The Wounded Warrior Retreat by the Lake was officially opened for overnight stays following a ribbon cutting ceremony on Wednesday, Sept. 19, 2018. The cabin is available for use by injured and ill veterans and their families on East Beach at Lake Tholocco, Fort Rucker, Alabama. 

The Wiregrass Wounded Veterans Committee (WWVC) could use your help to continue to maintain this for present and future generations of heroes to enjoy the great outdoor living.

Thank you for your generous support!

 

You can also donate to the maintenance of this cabin at GoFundMe

Melvin Jones Fellows

The Melvin Jones Fellowship is the backbone of LCIF, providing 70 percent of its revenues. A recognition of humanitarian work, an MJF is given to those who give US$1,000 to LCIF or to people for whom a donation was made by others. Melvin Jones Fellows receive an attractive lapel pin, a plaque and a congratulatory letter.

The Melvin Jones Fellowship Progressive program recognizes people who donate US$1,000 or more or people in whose name a donation had been made, beyond the initial Melvin Jones Fellowship donation of US$1,000. Melvin Jones Fellows donating US$1,000 receive a one-diamond yellow gold lapel pin for the first level of the progressive program and additional recognition for subsequent donations.

To apply for a fellowship, use the Contribution Form/MJF Application form (LCIF-42).
For more information, refer to the Melvin Jones Fellowship (LCIF-24) brochure.

Contributions can be made by individuals (including non-Lions), clubs, or districts. Contributions can be made in one sum, or in installments of a minimum of US$100 over a five-year period.

Melvin was born on January 13, 1879, at Fort Thomas Arizona. At age 33 he was the sole owner of his own insurance agency in Chicago, Illinois and became a member of the local business circle. After two years, he felt that as influential businessmen, their talents could be better utilized in other areas of community life.

In 1917 after pursuing this thought for four years they formed what is now known as LIONS CLUBS INTERNATIONAL with 27 clubs from around the United States. The Association became international in 1920, when the Lions of Detroit chartered the Windsor Ontario Lions Club, in Canada. In 1950, Melvin Jones was conferred the title of SECRETARY GENERAL of LIONS INTERNATIONAL for life. Since that time Lions organizations have grown to over 1.4 million members in over 45,000 clubs.

Melvin Jones the founder of this great service organization, died in 1961. His philosophy of life, "you can't get very far until you start doing something for somebody else," lives in our motto "WE SERVE."
