who we are 
   Who We Are              

    As Lions, we volunteer our time and efforts to humanitarian causes throughout our District, the State of Virginia and the World. By conducting service projects and raising funds, we strive to help those in need - wherever the need exists: locally or throughout the world community. The Lions' motto is "We Serve."

    Our association was founded in Chicago, Illinois in 1917. Lions Clubs International has grown to be the world's largest service organization with more than 1.3 million members belonging to local clubs in most countries of the world. The headquarters of Lions Clubs International is in Oak Brook, Illinois. The international association is governed by a board of directors, which is elected annually at the International Convention.

    Lions speak many different languages and profess many religious and political beliefs; however, they all subscribe to common objectives and ethical principles. In District 24D What We Do is similar to districts around the world.

    The clubs in District 24-D are organized in Regions and Zones, based on geographical location. Each region and each zone has a chairperson. You can find the Clubs on the Peninsula, Southside and Eastern Shore on the 'find a club' page, or at our telephone answering service at 757-594-0082.

    You can learn about the top level of our district government on the 'district leadership' page, which has short biographies of our governor, vice district governors, secretary and treasurer. Similarly, you can learn about our three region chairs on the 'region chair' page and our nine zone chairs on the 'zone chairs' page. The 's&h chairs' page has a list of all the club sight and hearing chairpersons across the district - the folks that promote and manage our biggest historical contribution to the community.

     If you would like more information on what we do you can reach us by email or contact those clubs with Websites.
