Beautiful San Geronimo Valley


  The San Geronimo Valley Lions are proud to introduce you to our small valley and our four villages of Woodacre, San Geronimo, Forest Knolls and Lagunitas.  Our valley is the best kept secret so don’t tell anyone about our pristine Papermill Creek with famous Coho Salmon runs, our gateway to Samuel Taylor State Park and Point Reyes National Seashore, Mount Barnaby fire lookout, and an exceptionally active Lions Club.




Dear Fellow Lions

We are starting the 2022-2023 Lions Year with a FAMILY POT LUCK.  Thursday September 29, 2022 6:00 PM for our picnic barbecue at Andy Gidings house in beautiful downtown Woodacre.  #21 Crescent at Oak Grove across from the Tennis Courts.  I hope you have enjoyed a fabulous summer and I look forward to working together in the coming year.


September 2022

September is traditionally our welcome back Family Pot Luck, although the last several years have not been traditional.  The pandemic lingers, but we are coping by being outside and/or wearing masks.  Our Board of Directors have decided to begin the year with our annual outside pot luck with safe distancing and masks if necessary. 



The September Family Pot luc brought us special guests Rick Carnal (Big Rick) 1st District Governor and District Governor Beverlee and Carl Steiner.
