Belvidere Leo Club


      Welcome to the Belvidere High School Leo Club Site!  The Belvidere Leo Club was founded in 2008 by Mrs. Judy Black.  In the past couple of years the club has drastically grown, now having nearly 70 members!  The formation of the LEO Club was spearheaded by Belvidere Lions Club member Bradford R. Day. Combining efforts with the Harmony Lions Club, the two clubs proudly presented the Belvidere High School LEO Club with its charter, banner and announcement of a scholarship.  To access the Belvidere Lions Club website click the link at the bottom of the page. 

      In October 1967, the board of directors of Lions Clubs International adopted the Leo Club Program as an official program of the association.  The Leo Club Program as been growing strong for over 50 years.  There are now more than 5,700 Leo clubs in approximately 140 countries.

      Community service remains the cornerstone of the program.  Like their Lion counterparts, Leo club members enjoy serving their neighbors and watching positive results unfold.  Leo clubs encourage young people to develop valuable skills and to serve others in their neighborhoods and around the world. Whether school-affiliated or communitybased, Leo clubs provide their members with the camaraderie and growth that come from participation in community service projects, social functions and leadership development activities.
