Frostburg Village, and because they sometimes have
Lions in there nursing and rehabilitation facilities, she
suggested forming a Lions club there.
On February 6, 2015 Lions John & Sandy Parker,
Susan & Bill Munck, and Linda Baker went to
Frostburg Village and discussed Lions with
approximately fifteen individuals.
Ten of those folks eventually joined Frostburg Lions
Branch Club - Village Lions - becoming the first
branch club in our district.
Village Lions had their first meeting on Friday, March

Service has been the hallmark of Lions Clubs
International since it was founded in 1917. It is the
world's largest service club organization with 1.3
million members in 205 countries and regions. Lions
Clubs International Foundation (LCIF) was begun in
1968 to take that service to new levels by tackling
global problems as well as assisting Lions with
large-scale local humanitarian projects. Through LCIF,
Lions meet the needs of their local and global
communities. LCIF has evolved to become an
internationally recognized humanitarian organization
and the largest blindness prevention organization.
LCIF is able to leverage its funds by partnering with
other non-governmental organizations and
corporations that share a common mission. The
Foundation grants, on average, $30 million annually.
LCIF is particularly proud of it SightFirst program,
launched in 1990 to reduce and eliminate the causes
of preventable blindness worldwide. Through the
program, it has helped more than 30 million people.
