About the LIONS


The Lions are volunteer members of clubs grouped under an international organization, where they enjoy fellowship, develop their leadership capacities, and dedicate part of their free time to help those in need all over the world, while making their individual communities a better place in which to live, to work and to play. Our motto is "We Serve".

The numerous service programs Lions undertake have been classified into 10 Major Activities, each offering a range of projects suitable to the needs of any community. They are: Sight Conservation and Work for the Blind, Citizenship Services, Hearing and Speech Action and Work for the Deaf, Educational Services, Environmental Services, International Services, Recreational Services, Health Services, Social Services and Drug Awareness. In addition, the Lions Clubs International Foundation is one of the world's largest privately supported foundations which funds disaster relief, health research and vocational training.

There are over 1,400,000 men and women in over 45,923 Lion and Lioness clubs in 193 countries and geographical areas of the world.

District 4-A1 is a geographical subdivision of Lions International. It includes the counties of San Joaquin, Stanislaus, Merced, Madera, Amador, Calaveras, Tuolumne and Mariposa. There are 67 Lions Clubs, 1 Lioness Club and 12 Leo Clubs. District 4-A1 has 2,605 Members, being one of the largest districts in all of Lions International.

Each club undertakes various fundraising activities in its community for a variety of community service projects. 100% of all funds raised by Lions is spent on service projects. Community service projects are varied, and range from the support of youth activities to the building of parks. Lion Clubs are members of the Lions Eye Foundation of California-Nevada, which enable a Lions Club to refer eye patients for sophisticated eye care not available in their local communities. Many clubs are members of the Ear of the Lion Foundation which provides similar service for the deaf and hearing impaired persons. Many of our clubs support the Lions Project for Canine Companions for Independence which trains dogs to work with handicapped persons, typically those restricted to wheelchairs.

District 4-A1 is proud to operate Camp Pacifica, an annual outdoor camp for hearing, and sight impaired youngsters where they can experience mountain recreational activities which they would not otherwise enjoy. Our district also owns and operates its own eyemobile, a familiar site throughout our district, which is equipped for glaucoma screening, diabetes testing and hearing testing.

Lions Clubs are open to men and women, and welcome membership inquiries by persons who share their goals and enjoy having fun while serving their community.

Who are the Lions? People, having fun, doing good.


Lions Club International

Since 1917, Lions clubs have offered people the opportunity to give something back to their communities. From involving members in projects as local as cleaning up an area park or as far-reaching as bringing sight to the world's blind, Lions clubs have always embraced those committed to building a brighter future for their community.

Today with more than 46,000 clubs in 194 countries and geographical areas, Lions have expanded their focus to help meet the ever-increasing needs of our global community.

Our programs are continually changing to meet new needs and greater demands, but our mission has never wavered: "We Serve."
