Melvin Jones International Memorial

Jones Memorial

Located at Fort Thomas, Arizona, the Melvin Jones Lions International Memorial was erected and dedicated in 1965.

In 1961 the International Board of Directors proclaimed January 13 (the birthday of our founder, Melvin Jones) as a day of memory each year though out the world of Lionism. Founders and Rededication month traditionally observed in January, shall thereafter be designated as Melvin Jones Memorial month.

In June 1999 the Lions International Board gave this prestigious fifty foot spire recognition as an International Memorial. On several occasions before his passing, Melvin visited the site of his birth and participated with the Arizona Lions groups that laid the foundation for the memorial now honoring his name.
