CALIPATRIA — The Calipatria Lions Club has recently resurfaced, promising to promote community service and volunteerism in the north end after a hiatus of about of 15 years.

Talk about re-establishing a Lions Club here dated back several months, when it was discovered that the former iteration had some funds that would revert to the organization at the state level if not spent, said Rom Medina, current club chair and Calipatria city manager.
