District 4-A1

On this page, you will get information about many district and state Lions projects.  Each project started with a lion.  Join us today to bring that project to our local community.

What does 4-A1 in District 4-A1 mean?

California is Multiple District 4.  Different states or countries all over the world could form a multiple district.  California is further divided into C, A, L.  C for Northern CA, A for Central CA, and L for Southern CA.  There are A1, A2 and A3. 4-A1 from Lodi to Tracy to Los Banos, Madera and east to the mountain area.  A2 is Fresno to just north of Bakersfield.  A3 is approximately Bakersfield. http://lions4-a1.org/
