Historical Note

The Rock Hill Lions Club was chartered April 29, 1929 as a community service organization dedicated to improving the lives of Rock Hill residents.

Scope and Content Note

The Rock Hill Lions Club Records consist of minutes, reports, correspondence, financial records, program notes, newspaper clippings, bylaws, supply catalogs, magazines, annual directories, newsletters, bulletins, membership records, ballots, activity reports, memorabilia, and a poster. Most of the material consists of records relating to various fund raising activities sponsored by the Rock Hill Lions Club to obtain money for charities. About one-third of the collection consists of financial records. It is a good source of information, not only for those doing research on the Lions Club but for those researching work done with the blind, the poor, the Boys Home of the South in Greenville, SC, the Episcopal Church Home in York, SC, and the SC Eye Bank. The club functions as a community service organization.


The records of the Rock Hill Lions Club were deposited with the Archives by Mr. C.M. Johns, on March 29, 1977.
