Welcome to the Lions of Virginia District 24D
DG Lion Tucker Casanova
Welcome from the District Governor
Hello, and thanks for visiting the Lions of Virginia! We Are District 24-D, our service area is the South East corner of the state. From Sussex County through Hampton Roads to include Virginia Beach, the Eastern Shore all the way up to King William, Tappahannock and Northumberland Counties. For a comprehensive map, click the “Find a Club” link on the menu on the left.
The Lions started in 1917 when our founder, Melvin Jones asked, "What if these men who are successful because of their drive, intelligence and ambition, were to put their talents to work improving their communities?" In 1925 Helen Keller spoke at our International Convention and challenged us to become “Knights of the Blind”. Our mission soon grew to include Hearing Preservation, and continues to grow to this day. Our Service Projects include not just Sight and Hearing but Youth, Literacy, Environment, Diabetes, Community & Global Outreach, Health and Disaster/Hunger Relief. That is an impressive focus, but by no means our limits. Because of our history and experience Lions Clubs all over the world are granted incredible flexibility and access which allows us, to be not just one of the most compassionate service organizations, but one of the most effective as well.
If you NEED help, we are here for you.
If you WANT to help, we welcome you.
To learn more, go back to that map under Find a Club click on your neighborhood to reach the Lions of your Service Area and give them a call or email. Consider this your official invitation to come by one of our meetings, see firsthand what it is we do, discover for yourself what it means to be a Lion, and why our motto is “We Serve”.
Thank you for your interest in the Lions Clubs of District 24-D, I hope to see you around.
Yours in Lionism,
Lion Tucker Casanova
District Governor of 24-D, 2016-2017
