Sponsored by the Salisbury Host Lions Club, the Delmar Lions Club was chartered in February 1938.  In our generous support of the Delmar community over the last 75 years, some of our many projects include donating the land for State Street Park to the town of Delmar, chartering and supporting Boy Scout Troop 174, college scholarships for Delmar High School seniors, local youth sports programs, Christmas gifts for residents of the local nursing home, vision exams and eyeglasses.

We continue to support LCIF, LVRF, Leader Dogs for the Blind, among others.  In support of our endeavors, our members can be seen fundraising at our annual golf tournament and selling hot dogs and hamburgers at local events including Delmar's A Day In The Park, Wright's Market Watermelon Festival in Mardela Springs, and Heritage Days in Delmar.

Recently, we have had only one Past District Governor and one Past District Cabinet Secretary, but over our history we have had many members serve on the District 22-D's Cabinet.  The Delmar Lions Club sponsored the Lions Club in Sharptown, MD in 1940.
