“Fostering A More Involved Lion in You”
District Governor Dr. Jun Valera
April 24, 2022
District Governor Dr. Jun Valera has announced that he is
NOT endorsing candidates for 2022-2023 District Governors.
San Francisco Marina-No Beach Lions Club sadly announces the passing of Lion Frances Tolosa. Until her illness, Lion Frances was a very active Lion not only in her club but with District 4-C4, Multiple District 4, and at LCI Conventions. Lion Frances is survived by her son, Ronald, and daughter, Joanne, 3 grandchildren and 1 great grandchild. Condolences may be sent to Joanne Tolosa and Family, 1945 Bush Street, Apt J., San Francisco CA 94115-3226. Our thoughts are with Lion Frances’s family, friends and fellow Lions.
