Jay Ruiz, Sr. is Back!
Jay, in January 2014 dropped himself from our Club but members of our Club voted to reinstate him. We can not afford to let a very valuable Lion like Jay to just fade away. In due time we expect him to be back "in circulation" as usual. Welcome Back Lion Jay.
LIONS CLUBS INTERNATIONAL
San Diego TFC (The Filipino Company) Lions Club was chartered July 7, 2009 - The newest Lions Club in District 4-L6 this Lion Year (2009 - 2010) under the leadership of District Governor Julie Crawford.
When chartered, San Diego TFC is one of the 60 Lions Clubs in District 4-L6.

"TFC", The Filipino Channel, is a moniker for the ABS-CBN Global TV Network from the Philippines that intended to connect Filipinos, living and/or working overseas, to their country of origin. Ear catching and very popular, it was adopted by the club, but instead, to mean "The Filipino Company". It aimed to invite those who have affiliations, attachments and connections to the Filipinos to join the club; and aside from fellowship, partnership and networking, serve their local communities and also serve across the seas.
The club logo depicts a "jeepney", a form of public transportation that is prominent and popular in the Philippines. It is inside a round frame to signify the club's unending commitment to Lionism and dedication to service. The text colors represent the same colors (red, green and blue) of the TFC ABS-CBN Global network, the inspiration for the club's distinguishing name.
