Lions District 4-C4

Lions Clubs International is the world’s largest community service organization. When caring people join together, roll up their sleeves and take action to make their community better, it’s a beautiful thing — and an incredible feeling for everyone involved. That’s Lions. Being a Lion is about leading by example, building relationships and improving the world through kindness. It’s 1.4 million caring men and women serving together so they can make a lasting impact and change more lives. – About Us

First Vice District Governor Kevin Guess

Peninsula Veterans Lions Club

Ten years ago, under the leadership and mentorship of the late PDG Al Russell, the seeds of Lionism were planted for Lion Kevin as Charter President of the Peninsula Veterans Lions Club. Guiding Lion Al, who was also a veteran, provided Lion Kevin with a template based on commitment to service, integrity and loyalty. As in the Army, Lion Kevin serves with the purpose of never leaving anyone behind.

Lion Kevin shares his love for service with his wife, Lion Tamera. “Having a partner who has embraced and shared this journey has been one of the best parts of being a Lion. Her vision and dedication is awe inspiring!” he states. Lion Tamera is a charter member of the Peninsula Veterans Lions, having been President for two years. Lion Tamera is a Past Secretary of the Peninsula Council of Lions. Together they have a blended family that includes three daughters, a son, eight grandchildren and a precious great granddaughter.

Having both worked long-term as supervisors for Stanford University Dining, it has been beneficial and instrumental for the Peninsula Veterans Lions. The club’s principal fundraiser is volunteering in the Concession Booth at every Stanford home football game.

Over the past twelve years, Lion Kevin has continued to be dedicated in his career as a mental health case manager serving severely challenged adults in San Mateo County. Lion Kevin is known to many as a dedicated community servant, as well as a community resource. Lion Kevin looks forward to the challenges ahead in a new leadership role while continuing to inspire Lions everywhere
