Change is what has driven the Lions Club of Mysore West ever since its inception, and is the force behind the story of our success.
A good many years ago, when Mysore was still famously known for its laidback spirit and as a “pensioner’s paradise”, a dynamic group of people came together to set up the Lions Club of Mysore West. Inaugurated on the 8th of February, 1981 by District Governor Lion B. L. S. Murthy, the club’s genesis was largely shaped by the guidance of founding chartered members who wished the club to be exclusive and elite, not only in its ideas but also in terms of the gentry forming the membership of this fledging club.
There indeed was a group of 40 men who ticked all the boxes and thus Lions Club of Mysore West came into existence with Lion Ashvini Ranjan as the Charter President, Lion K. R. Kumar as Secretary and Lion N. Ramesh as Treasurer.
Lions Club of Mysore West also has a Mysore West Lions Trust, which is registered under the societies act.
Since its inception in 1981, the Lions Club of Mysore West has been conducting several specialized activities. The club has some unique ways of fundraising to support its service activities. The extent of fundraising is usually a substantial one. Simultaneously the club has also been starting some permanent projects.
One main permanent project is starting a School that is affiliated with CBSE and conducting classes from LKG to 10th standard. This school has been obtaining stellar results in the CBSE 10th standard public exam.
