UPCOMING EVENTS
Our District publishes The Thread weekly for the purpose of keeping the Lions of our District informed of upcoming events and the latest District news/information. It is each Lions Clubs’ responsibility to follow the State of California and local Health Department rules and regulations regarding Covid-19.
    It is each Lion’s duty to review the information and see what interests them. It’s also each Lion’s responsibility to determine if these events are Covid-19 safe for them.
