MD19 Districts

Multiple District 19 of Lions International (“MD19”) is comprised of 5 subdistricts located in the Province of British Columbia, Canada, and the states of Idaho and Washington in the United States.

MD19 began in 1922 as District 19, serving 8 Lions clubs in British Columbia, Oregon and Washington. It became Multiple District 19 during the 1947–1948 fiscal year when it reorganized into 5 subdistricts serving 179 clubs: Districts 19–A, 19–B, 19–C, 19–D and 19–E.

Districts 19–D and 19–E were reorganized into Districts 19–D, 19–E and 19–F during the 1950–1951 fiscal year. District C was reorganized into Districts 19–C and 19–G in 1964, giving MD19 7 districts with 299 clubs. Two more reorganizations brought MD19 to its current 9 districts: District 19–A was reorganized into Districts 19–A and 19–H in 1966–1967, and then Districts 19–A and 19–H became Districts 19–A, 19–H and 19–I in 1970–1971.

On July 11, 2023, MD19 reorganized under a redistricting plan that consolidated its 9 subdistricts into 5 subdistricts, which were renamed Districts L, I, O, N and S.

Former Districts 19–A and 19–I have been consolidated to form District 19–L; Five zones from District 19–E joined with the former District 19–D to form District 19–I; Former Districts 19–B and 19–H combined to form District 19–O; Former Districts 19–C and 19–G have consolidated to form District 19–N, and; five zones from the former District 19–E joined with the former District 19–F to form the new District 19–S.
