Welcome to Lions District 32-D
“Strengthen the PRIDE”
"STRENGTHENING the PRIDE
THROUGH EDUCATION AND COMMUNICATION"
As 32-D moves forward in Lionism, our clubs will be able to grow in strength through increased education of both current and new members. Stronger Lions Clubs will in turn increase our visibility and allow us to better serve our communities, district, and state.
Fun music, good friends, and feeling at home define the spirit of Hearthstone Rhythm Band. A group of seasoned musicians from the Palmetto State, these guys came together to bring you their spin of acoustic music that will remind you what it's like to sit around the fireplace and have some fun pickin' and singin'!
Influenced by bluegrass music and South Carolina culture, Hearthstone Rhythm Band will have you smiling, clapping, and foot tapping along with lightning fast pickin', energetic songs, and a serious love for playing traditional music. You may even find some of the band members teaching you a note or two on an instrument before, during, or after a show.
So grab a sip of sweet tea, pull up a chair, and sit back and have fun with your family and friends with Hearthstone Rhythm Band!
