District  Governors...

Frostburg proudly has had two District Governors, and
three Deputy District Governors.

We are a part of Lion Multiple District 22 - we are
District 22-W.

The 16th District of Lions Clubs International was
organized in 1921 and consisted of the states of New
Jersey, New York, Maryland, Delaware, and the District
of Columbia. Because of the rapid growth in he
District, it became necessary one year later  - 1922 - to
divide the area - New Jersey remained as the 16th
District, New York became District 20, and Maryland,
Delaware, and D.C. became District 22.

The Baltimore Lions Club was the first to organize
(October 26,1921) within the boundaries of the present
District 22. In 1940,  District 22 was divided into
Districts 22-A and 22-B. In 1944, District 22-C was
organized, followed by Districts 22-D and 22-W in
1947. The Frederick Lions Club was the first to have
organized (June 7, 1922) within the boundaries of the
present Sub-District 22-W.


  • District 22-A - Anne Arundel, Baltimore,
    Baltimore City, Hartford and Howard Counties
  • District 22-B - Caroline, Cecil, Dorchester, Kent,
    Queen Anne's, Somerset, Talbot, Wicomico
    and Worchester Counties Prince Georges, St.

  • District 22-W - Allegany, Carroll, Frederick,

(Sponsored) Village Lions Branch...

A branch club at a nursing care facility started with
District Governor Lion John Parker.   Lion John's
daughter, Brandi Martin is the Director of Nursing at
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
13, 2015, and have continued to meet monthly on the
2nd Friday of each month at 11:0 a.m.

Official Charter Night was June 10, 2015, and as Lions
International does not provide a Charter for Branch
Clubs, Frostburg Lions created a Charter, that was
signed by all ten of the Charter members and

Lions Clubs International Foundation...

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.
