 A SHORT HISTORY OF DISTRICT 4-C5

LIONS CLUBS INTERNATIONAL

Multiple District 4

It all started on July 1, 1958 when District 4-C5 was formed.  Our District originally was part of 4-A then became District 4-C1 and finally 4-C5, all of this happening in one year, due to the geographic size and number of Clubs involved.  The creation of the two districts required much effort on the part of Governor Ken H. Spencer (1957-1958) who was a member of the Roseville Lions Club.

In 1990, our membership was 2120 with 66 clubs.  Our membership numbers for November 2009 are 58 clubs and 1688 members. We much continue to focus on increasing our membership and retaining the members. Our Extension Committee is working on developing new clubs to meet the community services needs of our growing communities.

District 4-C5 encompasses the counties of Placer, Nevada, Sacramento, El Dorado, Sierra and Yolo.  It is divided into four Regions, Donner Region, Dos Rios Region, Sacramento Region and Washoe Region.  The 58 clubs in our district are divided, geographically, into 13 Zones. Three or four Zone make up a Region.  Our District Governor visits each club during the year, bringing information to the club from the District, the Multiple District and Lions Clubs International and thanking them for all the community service.

Since 1993, we have elected Vice District Governors and in 2009 our district now has an elected 1st Vice District Governor and a 2nd Vice District Governor, both learning and planning for their year while supporting the programs of the District Governor.

Some of the projects that are supported by the District are; City of Hope, The Hearing Foundation, Folsom Project for the Visually Impaired, Lions Education Foundation, Lions in Sight, Lions Project for Canine Companions, Inc., Youth Outreach, Wilderness Camp for Deaf Children, Lions International Peace Poster Contest, Youth Exchange, Northern California Lions Sight Association, MD 4 Student Speaker Contest, Volunteers of Vacaville and White Cane Days.  Each cub has its local charities and project that they donate to along with being encouraged to support the district and International projects.

We are proud to have in our district Past International President Kay K. Fukushima from Senator Lions Club, International Director Bob Smith from Embarcardo Lions  Our District has had four Council Chairman (elected to lead the 15 Governors from California (Multiple District 4).
