Lions Clubs

District 1-F covers the northeast corner of Illinois from Lake Michigan and the Wisconsin border to Schaumburg on the southwest.
The District has 33 Lions clubs and three Leo clubs with more than 975 Lions and Leos in service to the communities of Northeast Illinois and to visually and hearing impaired people worldwide. The district is part of Lions Clubs International, an organization with 46,000 clubs in every corner of the globe. With more than 1.4 million men and women in over 200 countries and geographic areas who work together to answer the needs that challenge communities around the world.
The District is also part of Lions of Illinois and supports the Lions of Illinois Foundation.
