If you were at the District convention Saturday afternoon, chances are you had a taste of Mama Cho’s BBQ ribs and kimchi. In the early hours of May 30, a devastating fire engulfed the business building of Lion Joanne Cho, president of the San Francisco Korean Lions Club, resulting in its complete destruction and loss of her business as well as 5 other businesses. During this difficult time, we extend our warm thoughts and request your prayers and support for her and her family.  

Lion Yvonne Kantola, Sunshine Chair
