The Past District Governors Organization is made up of Lions in Wisconsin who are former District Governors. Even though our year as District Governor is over, our leadership skills, knowledge and experience are still viable. We feel that we are a valuable resource and still have a lot to give. Many of our members have leadership roles on their District Cabinets or in other Lions organizations. We’ve had many questions in the past as to what should be our role and how should we support the current Council of Governors, Board of Directors of the Wisconsin Lions Foundation and the Lions Eye Bank of Wisconsin.
These questions can be answered with our mission: To provide the Multiple District 27 Lions continued leadership by helping them to understand and meet their responsibilities as members of the world’s largest service organization “Lions Clubs International”. To expand opportunities and enhance the quality of mankind through continued support and leadership for the lions of Multiple District 27, and to help advance Lionism in Multiple District 27 by leading, strengthening and educating for the betterment of mankind.

This year LCI President Barry Palmer has asked PDGs to be mentors to zone chairs to improve our Lions organization.

Some of our members wrote articles on who we are.  Listed below are four articles for your reading enjoyment.

This is who we are and what we do. The need for making a difference in the lives of others is great. We continue to help!
Yours in service,
Dave Hempel, President
