2016-17 Roster Available

Download your copy of the District Roster. Printed copies are going to be somewhat scarce, so be sure to grab a copy and put it on your phone, tablet or whatever works for you. It's big so be patient and it would be appreciated if you'd download and keep a copy rather than keep downloading it every time you want to look up something.

Grab Your Visitation Card

If you are planning on visiting Lions clubs, be sure to download and print out the current Visitation Card in either Word form or PDF form.

List Your Event

We have a new procedure for listing your events -- an all-in-one email address that is sent automatically to the District Secretary, District Webmaster and Google Calendar Coordinator. Just send your information and flyers to If any any other district officer would like to be on the list, please email your request to the same address and we'll oblige you. You'll get lots of email.

If you are thinking of holding an event, don't see any conflicts on the District Calendar but want to know if there might be any conflicts on your prospective date, please put "Planning" in the subject line so we'll know not to post it. You can also list several prospective dates and ask for guidance as to which would have the fewest confilicts. Lion District Secretary Heather Olsen will get back to you shortly with guidance.

When you send event listings, please include the important information in the body of the email and then attach flyers in PDF, Microsoft Word, Microsoft Publisher, RTF or JPG format. We will attempt to get all listings up within a week. If you have an emergency and need faster posting, please put "Urgent" in the subject.

Calendar Items

If you have an event you'd like to put on our calendar, use the link at the bottom of every page on the site. If you wish to post a flyer along with the announcement, include the content of the flyer in Microsoft Word, Adobe PDF or JPG format and sent it as an attachment to
