It takes over two dozen committees to run the various fund raising, charity, and administrative activities.

The committee chairman has responsibility for the activity, subject to budget limitations.  This includes planning, organizing, designating assignments, and making sure everything runs smoothly.  This year's co-chairman become chairman for the following year.  

We want to publicly recognize and thank the following Lions who are dedicating their time and energy this year and next to help make the Darien Lions Club the very best in Lionism.
