FROM OUR DISTRICT GOVERNOR

Welcome to Lions District 201 C1 in South Australia.

My name is Kevin Masters and I am honoured to be the current District Governor of C1 and proud to be a Lion.

The journey of every lion is different, but we are all lions because we want to help others, and serve our communities, locally, nationally and internationally.

I have met some of the most incredible people during my time in Lions. Friends for life. It’s important to have fun while we do the work we do.

Together we can, and do, make a difference in the community. So join us for some fun and you too can make a difference.

Kevin Masters

All Aboard to Serve!
