Presidents Message

Fellow Lions,
I am humbled that you have afforded me the opportunity to serve as the President of such a storied and experienced club. At meetings, as I look around the room at men and women who are passionate about making a difference in the local community, I realize the great responsibility that comes with being your President. I hope that I can help the club have some fun while continuing to support all the values that we hold true as Lions.

I look forward to the upcoming year and working with each of you to raise money and continue the fight against visions impairment and diabetes.

Lion Chris Williamson

COMMUNITY NEWS

On Saturday, January 30th, fourteen members of the Poquoson High School LEO Club visited the Chesapeake Lions eyeglass recycling center of eastern Virginia. While at the center, the LEOs washed donated eyeglasses and read the lens prescriptions using a lensometer machine. When completed, the LEOs sorted the glasses by size and prescription. Lions Clubs distribute the recycled eyeglasses to communities where those in need of glasses but cannot afford to pay for them. Pictured are Poquoson LEO Club members Taylor Williamson, Ashland Forrest, Eden Fullingim, Michael Kendrick, and Justin Jones sorting the glasses. Eyeglass recycling drop-off boxes, resembling old mailboxes, are located near Farm Fresh and Food Lion stores in Poquoson. Everyone is encouraged to drop-off old, unused eyeglasses so that the Lions can recycle them for use by others. Lions Clubs also recycle hearing aids and cell phones dropped in the drop-off boxes.

POQUOSON LIONS NEWS

May 17, 2015 was a historic day for the Poquoson Lions Club.  This morning Lion Ray Yannello was unanimously elected District Governor of Lions District 24D for the 2015-2016 Lions year.  Lion Ray is the only Poquoson Lion to rise to this level.  The unanimous vote was the first since Immediate Past International Director Lion Hauser Weiler was elected District Governor back in 2001.  (There were strong rumors that the unanimity of the vote was a result of a powerful and insightful nomination speech by a fellow Poquoson Lion, but this is just speculation.)

Lion Ray will be swore in as District Governor at the Lions International Convention taking place 26-30 June in Honolulu, Hawaii.


Our club is part of District 24D, Region I, Zone B.  Region I includes the Peninsula and Northern Neck and is further divided into three Zones.  Zone A consisting of Gloucester and the Northern Neck; Zone B consisting of Williamsburg, Poquoson, York County, and New Kent County; and Zone H consisting of Hampton and Newport News.  You will find links on this website to the Region 24D website, the Poquoson Leos Club and either links to the websites of the other 13 Lion’s Clubs in Region I or a listing of when and where they meet and how to contact them.  We have also included the same information for the Matthews Lion’s Club, which our club originally sponsored.
