See what one of our members says about being a part of our Lions Club.

The Downtown Lions Club meets on Tuesdays

Our meetings provide our members the opportunity to take a break from their busy week and enjoy a fine meal catered by Las Hadas, the camaraderie of others, and to listen to a great local guest speaker and learn more about the San Diego community.

Serve our Community the Way You Want!

As with all service organizations, you get out of it what you put into it and the Downtown San Diego Lions Club is no different. Once you join the club, you can participate at the level that you are comfortable with. We offer a variety of ways that you can be involved, our members can attend meetings, join one of our committees, or participate in other charitable work and community service.

Network, Party, and Make Friends Worldwide!

We have several networking and social events throughout the year and there is time before and after every meeting to network. We also host several well-attended theme nights each year such as a Casino night and a Holiday party in December, among other events.

Your Downtown San Diego Lions Club membership also enables you to attend meetings at any Lions Club worldwide! So if you are traveling to Turkey, Norway, or Brazil this year, or if you are going home to Wisconsin, you can attend any Lions Club meeting where you will be warmly welcomed when you arrive!

Join Today!
