23 Yesterdays Memory by Tom Turbiville Today was a special day. My College Station Noon Lions Club volunteered to haul luggage for campers at the Texas Lions Camp in Kerrville. The camp is 70 years old and is funded totally by Lions clubs in Texas. Campers families pay zero. Campers are all special needs kids. This was the last of Nine one-week sessions and was for kids with diabetes. More than 200 campers this session alone. My brother Charlie, who was deaf, was a camper here in 1959, when it was called Texas Lions Camp for Crippled Children. I can remember attending his closing ceremony at the amphitheater which is still there. What a rewarding experience. Lions Clubs International

34 Name and Logo The official name of the association is The International Association of Lions Clubs or simply Lions Clubs International. The name Lions was chosen on a secret ballot over several others because the Lion stood for strength, courage, fidelity, and vital action. The Lions logo consists of a gold L on a blue field surrounded by a gold circle. On both sides of the circle are profiles of a Lion head, one looking back upon a proud past and the other looking optimistically toward the future.
