WELCOME To Lions District 5SE

We are located on the eastern side of South Dakota; part of the MD5 District. We currently have 40 Lions, and 1028 members in the District.

   Our District Governor for the Lions Year 2022-2023 is Lion Robyn Tyler

District Governor Robyn is a member of the Siouxrise Lions Club in Sioux Falls where she has served as President (twice), membership chair, on the Board of Directors, and chair of many service projects.

She joined Lions in 1987; as a Lioness where she served as President, and Secretary, earning the 100% Secretary award from LCI. She was an active member of the Aberdeen, Huron, and Sioux Falls Lioness Clubs. Robyn has served on the Board of Directors of Dakota Lions Sight and Health and completed several terms on the South Dakota Lions Foundation Board where she served as Secretary. Robyn has served on the District 5SE cabinet for over 15 years mainly in the role of Diabetes Chairperson.

At the MD5 level she has served as MD5 Diabetes Chairperson, volunteered as the nurse at MD5 International Youth Camp, and has sponsored five international exchange students. Robyn is a Certified Guiding Lion, has attended many 5SE Fall Forums, 5SW Fall Rallies, Multiple District 5 Conventions, two USA-Canada Leadership Forums, and four International Conventions. She has received Lion of the Year from her club and was awarded two International President Certificates of Appreciation.

Outside of Lions, Robyn and her partner in service Lion John Peton enjoy exploring new places and having new experiences, spending time with their bichons Michi and Myah, and socializing with friends.

Faith is very important to Robyn and she attends St. John American Lutheran Church where she is a Stephen minister, has coordinated the Sunday School program, taught confirmation, and served on the Church Council. Robyn volunteers as a docent at the Great Plains Zoo and Delbridge Museum in Sioux Falls.

She grew up in Hartford, SD where her parents were active members of the Hartford Lions and Lioness Clubs. She was blessed with a great education and is a graduate of West Central High School, Augustana University, and South Dakota State University. Robyn is retired from the Department of Veterans Affairs where she worked as an Advanced Practice Nurse and diabetes specialist for over 25 years. She currently works as an RN at Ava’s House, an acute hospice unit of Sanford Health.

Robyn’s goal as District Governor is to continue the legacy of service and humility modeled by her parents, Robert and Edna Tyler
