Byron Delta Lions Club History

The Byron Delta Lions Club was officially chartered as a Lions Club on July 1, 1992; from 1983-1992 we were known as the Discovery Bay Lionesses with approximately  24 members.  When we chartered as Lions we began with 40 members and have grown to approximately 70 plus members. 

We are active in many projects inside and outside of Discovery Bay.  In the past, we sponsored community blood drives and held pancake breakfasts to help the Discovery Bay School.  We presently support eye screening of pre-school children, a baby shower for new mothers at the Martinez County Hospital, Special Kids’ Day, Wilderness Camp for deaf children, a community food drive, the Lions Center for the Visually Impaired (LCVI) in Pittsburg and many other community activities. 

We traditionally hold three major fundraisers.  In the past we have had dinners, fashion shows, live entertainment, vocal competition and many more venues.  We find time for fun by having social gatherings and attending the annual District 4-C3 convention in Sacramento. 

In 2008-09 we were honored to have one of our members, Lion Jane Perry, become the District 4-C3 Governor.  As of 2021 our club has produced one Vice District Governor, one 2nd Vice District Governor, voted up to a 1st Vice District Governor, seven Zone Chairpersons, five Region Chairpersons, one Cabinet Secretary and a variety of District Committee Chairpersons.

We are a strong, proud and active club, continuing to make our mark on the community.
