Programs - August, 2014August 4, 2014 - This was the August Monthly Board Meeting. Minutes of that meeting published on our blog and made available to all Club members for review and comment. A motion was made, seconded and approved to accept the Board Meeting Minutes as presented.
August 18, 2014 - Today's meeting was dedicated to meeting our new District Governor, Lion Gil Smith and his Cabinet. Introductions were made by Lions (President) Ken B., (Zone "A" Chairman) Andy Megaw, and (Region Chairman) Dave Stilwell. District Governor Gil Smith (2014/2015) talked to us about his expectations for the coming year. He stated that the International President's theme is "Strengthen With Pride" and his own Theme is "Seize The Opportunities To Lead, Grow and Serve". Both themes are dependent on growing membership and stimulating activities in Lions. When we are approaching potential new members we should focus on the value the individuals will bring to the Club and Lions. Governor Gil stressed the importance of providing new member and leadership training through our Club and the District. Membership growth is key and Gil asked us to question where we will be in five years. Can we grow Lions 1 million plus membership to 100 million (quit a challenge). Gil also asked how can the District help us? He stressed the benefits and need to develop a "Community Needs Assessment" to identify where help can really be placed to provide meaningful value.
2nd Vice District Governor also, talked about membership and the importance of training to both new and old members. He talked about the Lions.org training guide available to us. Lastly he talked about the Governors Fund Raiser which is planned in the near future. This fund raiser is important to help the Governor with the many expenses associated with his position.

Other Items Worthy of Mention:
60th Annual Fish BakeThe Upland Host Lions only fund raiser is our annual Fish Bake and with our 60 year experience with this affair the community is still providing good support. We have felt the recent dip in our economy but were still going strong and look forward to many more successful years with this fund raiser. We have made changes over the years, in the food, and changed the name to "Community Fun Day In the Park". With the changes in economy we still raised substantial funds for charity.
