Serving San Francisco County, San Mateo County and the City of Palo Alto
Our motto is "We Serve" Lions are a diverse group of business, retired, professional, veterans, self-employed, college students, moms and dads, teens, in short people working together to accomplish our goals, to serve our local community and the world.
The International Association of Lions Clubs began as the dream of a Chicago insurance man Melvin Jones, who wondered why local business clubs -- he was an active member of one -- could not expand their horizons from purely business concerns to the betterment of their communities and the world at large.
As District Governor I want to welcome you to our District web site and to the many events that span our District that includes all of San Francisco, the Peninsula and the City of Palo Alto. Please contact me with any questions or for more information at email@example.com.

COMMUNITY VOLUTEERS MAKE A DIFFERENCE: If you’re interested in volunteering, leading projects, networking and having fun – you can do all of this and more as a Lions club member. As a Lion, you’ll perform local volunteer work to improve your community – and communities around the world. You can join a local club that meets in person. A cyber club meets online. Or a special interest club based on your profession, a hobby or anything you care about. You can plan a local project to protect the environment. Recycle eyeglasses to help the working poor. Or bring clean water to a remote village. Whatever you choose, you’ll be sharing, caring and making a difference.
