The Chicago Mayfair Lions Club has been actively serving the Mayfair community of Chicago, Illinois since 1947 and is the proud home of 2003-2004 Council Chair and District Governor Lion Georg G. Toft.

Also, Mayfair Lion David Hansen was one of two District 1-A Trustees to the Lions of Illinois Foundation of MD-1 for the years 2009-2011 and went on to run for the office of 2nd Vice District Governor for the year 2011-2012 and became Governor for the 2013-2014 year.

The Mayfair Lions Club was organized on October 16, 1947 and received its charter on January 16, 1948 with 106 members.  The club was sponsored by the Jefferson Park Lions Club.

Over the years, the Club has sponsored three (3) Lions Clubs:  Pan American, Edgebrook and most recently, the Chicago Windy City Lions Club, the first Cyber Club in MD-1! The Club also sponsored the first official Lioness club in District 1-A which went on to serve the Mayfair Community for 23 years along side the Lions Club.

Club members have gone on to serve District and MD-1 in many capacities, District Chairs, Zone Chairs, Region Chairs, PR Chairs, MERLOW Committee members involving Orientation and Women and Family Membership Chairs, Long Range Planning, Cabinet Secretary Treasurer and GLT/GMT members.

The club publishes a monthly newsletter, the "Mayfair Monarch Memo"  which is sent out to all club members, district officials, area businesses and the PR Department of LCI.

Over the years, the club has been involved in the Salute to American heroes project, continues to sponsor area little league teams, makes regular book donations to the local Mayfair branch library, has sent area residents to Leader Dog for the Blind and continues to support the Albany Park Community Center with book donations, school supplies and Christmas projects.  Just recently, the club's members also helped to build a very special playground at the Chicago Lighthouse for the Blind and Visually Impaired.
