District Governor 31-L



Everyday, from Murphy to Manteo, North Carolina, over 10,000 Lions work diligently to improve their communities and the world around them. The clubs that form District 31L hold the same vision as fellow Lions around the world and that is to serve those less fortunate. 

We Serve

Through the dilligent efforts of our members, District 31L Lions are there to help, whatever the need. In District 31L our many service projects address the needs of people all across the region focusing on the Blind and Visually Impaired Persons, Youth & the Environment.

Feel the Pride

We are all called to serve our fellow man. Some Lions are motivated to serve those in need in our local community, some are called to serve in the broader community of Western NC and beyond. Whatever your calling, we are glad that you are a Lion and have the opportunity to serve.

“When you give something to a Lion, we just seem to get it done.”

Past International President Joe Preston

McCune Center

The Marjorie McCune Memorial Center is a licensed Adult Care Home owned and operated by the Lions of Western North Carolina. Located in Black Mountain, North Carolina, the center is nestled in the Swannanoa Valley of Buncombe County in a country setting.

Our staff provides residents with quality care while encouraging independence. Many residents are no longer able to live alone or may need help from time to time. At the McCune Center we believe residents can enjoy life with dignity and it is our responsibility to provide it.

For those who live at the McCune Center, life is simply an extension of their own lives. Our resident's are able to spend time with their families, friends, and neighbors, in a setting that says "Welcome Home". Originally intended to accommodate the visually impaired, the McCune Center has become home to any persons with disabilities or inabilities to manage everyday life on their own. Our staff is well trained to accommodate many types of needs.
