From July of 2014 through June of 2018, Lions and Leos from around the world participated in special initiatives, programs and events to celebrate a century of serving humanity. It was truly a celebration unlike any the world has ever seen, culminating at the Lions Clubs International 100th International Convention in Chicago, Illinois, USA—the birthplace of the association in 1917.
The Host Forum Committee would like to thank all the Ohio Lions that attended, supported, donated, volunteered or helped in any way to make the 42nd USA/Canada Lions leadership Forum a success in Columbus.
