Upland Host Lions Monthly Bulletin - September, 2016

Programs - September, 2016
September (August 29,) 2016 - Due to the Labor day Holiday on September 5th The Club voted to hold the September, 2016 Monthly Board Meeting on August 29th. The Minutes of that Board Meeting were placed on the Club's blog for everyone to review and comment.

September 19, 2016 - Our program planned for today did not materialize, therefore, we discussed other items of interest to the Club. We had several visitors at our meeting today. We were honored to have 8 visitors from the Ontario/Upland Lions Club.  They visited us today to invite us to their Outback Fund Raiser scheduled for November 14th. Kyle Schneider, Vice President of "Dive Warriors", was an invited guest to receive our Club's donation to the Dive Warriors organization.

President Jim K. discussed an article he had read in "Upland Today". It was an article by and for the Upland Rotary Club. It was very well written and projected a great image to the City of Upland for their Rotary Club. President Jim observed that this was great P.R. for Rotary and said he would look into placing such an article in "Upland Today" for Upland Host Lions and said he would prepare a draft for the Club's agreement.

The Club has received notices from LCI of 2 individuals showing interest in membership in  our Club. After several attempts to contact both potential members no response has been received.

Other Items Worthy of Mention:
CLIS VISION SCREENING AT SULTANA SCIENCE and SPORTS ACADEMY

On September 10th CLIS, with the cooperation of four local Lions Clubs (Ontario/Upland Lions, Ontario Host Lions, Upland Host Lions and Cucamonga District Host Lions) conducted vision screening at the Sultana Science and Sports Academy in Ontario. Cucamonga District Host Lions organized this effort. From 8:00AM to 2:00PM 374 eye exams were provided resulting in fitting 271 pairs of glasses. 98 of these recipients were 1st timers for glasses and 11 were diagnosed with vision diseases they were not aware they had. Many children were among the 374 individuals who were tested.  The volunteers for this vision screening were fantastic. We had volunteers from 17 District 4-L4 Clubs.





DIVE WARRIORS - On August 15, 2016 a veterans help group called "Dive Warriors" visited our Club and told us of their mission to help severely wounded veterans overcome the trauma of their wounds in service to our Country. This visit was recorded in the August, 2016 Monthly Bulletin. The Dive Warriors organization is totally funded by donations and help from individuals. Their staff is totally unpaid volunteer. At the Club's September Board Meeting a motion was made that our Club donate to this very worthy group. We had a motion, seconded and approved to donate $200 to the Dive Warriors. This was a very small donation in return for the losses these veterans have suffered for our ongoing safety. The Vice President (volunteer) of Dive Warriors was invited to this meeting and presented with our donation and our expression of appreciation for their work.

Upland Host Lions Monthly Board Meeting - September, 2016

Board Members In Attendance: Lions Beverly B., Ken B., Keith, Jim K., Madeleine, Mike and Richard.

Other Members In Attendance: Lions Arlene, Joe, Charlotte and Tina.

Secretary's Report: The Secretary's Board Meeting Report for August, 2016 Was placed on the Club's blog for all Club members to review and comment.

Treasurer's Report: Treasurer Ken B. presented the following financial information for August and September, 2016:
Admin Acct.:     August 1, 2016 - $  4,413.57   September (August 29), 2016 - $  3989.17
Activity Acct.:   August 1, 2016 - $  5,959.49   September (August 29), 2016 - $13,621.46

Treasurer Ken, also, reported the net income from our Club's annual Fishbake was $5,567.97 and the Club LCI dues in the amount of $387.00 were paid.

Committee Reports: Fishbake/Steak Fry. The Fishbake/Steak Fry was a moderate success this year. Ticket sales and sponsorships were both down from previous years. This year our gross income was $8,468.00, expenses were $2,900.03 making our net income from this fund raiser $5,567.97. It takes approximately 30 people to handle our Fishbake and with our small (aged) Club we had a lot of outside help to pull this off. We are very grateful to the other Clubs, Boy Scouts, Cub Scouts, Latter Day Saints and all other volunteers for their support in making this fund raiser the success it was.

Old Business: On September 10th there is a four Club (Cucamonga Host, Ontario/Upland, Chino Valley and Upland Host) Vision Screening scheduled at the Sultana Sports and Science Academy in Ontario. Five members of our Club have volunteered to work at this screening.

The annual Governors Fund Raiser is Scheduled to be held on September 10th at Pete's Ponderosa and Club members were urged to attend

New Business: Our new business was an opportunity to talk about the Fishbake and bring up suggestions for next year, with overall improvement and suggestions for alternate or other fund raisers. An important part of this discussion was Club membership. We have an aging Club and it is getting very stressful for our older members to do the physical work associated with the Fishbake. We, fortunately, have had a lot of volunteers to help us but that need is growing every year and is straining relationships within the Club. As mentioned above we discussed the need for new members and our membership committee is working on that but we all need to be involved. We talked about improvements we could make in the overall Fishbake process primarily in our planning and cost estimating and general overall operation. We discussed relocating the Fishbake to a more desirable location, or even replacing it with another type fund raiser or multiple smaller activities. All of these discussion items need further investigation and Club participation.

Lion Tina has been working on our joint Calendar fund raiser, with other Clubs, and she now has the Calendars for distribution and suggested that each Club member take 10 Calendars to sell. The cost of any Calendars we don't sell will have to be covered by the Club.

Visitations: No Visitations are scheduled for September, 2016.

Requests For Donations: A motion was made to make a $200 donation to "Dive Warriors". Dive Warriors made a presentation to our Club On August 15th. It is a wounded veterans organization designed to ease the pain of war and the debilitating wounds (mental and physical) that our country's service men suffer. The organization is funded solely by contributions by friends and donations from service organizations like ours. The motion was seconded and approved by the Club membership.

The Club had received an e-mail from the Cucamonga Host Lions Club asking us to consider participating in the cost resulting from the Four Club Vision Screening scheduled to be held on September 10th in Ontario. The Vision Screening is to be held at the Sultana Sports & Science Academy and the school is charging the four Clubs $641 for its use. This charge was a surprise to the coordinating Club (CHL) and they said they would take care of it, but if any of the participating Clubs could share in the cost it would amount to $161.20 for each Club. A motion was made to participate in this $161.20 cost and a motion was made, seconded and approved for this donation.

Donations Made: Although donations were approved, none were made this month.

Next Meeting: The Club's next meeting is scheduled for Monday, September 19, 2016, 6:30 PM at maniac Mike's Café. The Program Chairperson for the next meeting is Lion Arlene.

Dessert Volunteers for October, 2016 - Lions Ken and Beverly Bell

Adjournment: No further items were brought up for discussion and Club President Jim K. adjourned the meeting.

Keep Smiling:
Have a Good Month

Upland Host Lions Monthly Bulletin - August, 2016

Programs - August, 2016

August 1, 2016 - This was our Monthly Board Meeting. Minutes of that Meeting were prepared and placed on the Club's blog for everyone to review and comment.

August 15, 2016 - At this meeting the Club was honored to have a group of Wounded Warriors speak to us about the therapeutic benefits they receive by participating in the Dive Warriors program. This program was started approximately six months ago by Mr. Brad Mirman who felt a deep need to do something for our wounded veterans who were coming home with serious disabilities and many of them were unable to cope with life and were committing suicide. Every day 22 veterans take their own lives because of the many debilitating experiences they have gone through in defending our Country and the lives of individuals in their tours overseas. Their injuries range from PTSD, traumatic brain injury, spinal injuries and loss of limbs. They are our quiet warriors, struggling in silence against pain, loneliness and a feeling they no longer belong in our society.

Dive warriors offers these veterans an environment of personal growth, camaraderie and a social setting where they can interact with other disabled veterans with similar issues. Through scuba diving, they overcome challenges and get relief from the stress and pain they suffer daily.

Dive Warriors gets no support from the government and operates solely from donations and generous support from people. All of their staff members and scuba professionals are volunteers. There is absolutely no cost to the veterans. Dive Warriors Mission is to build confidence and self esteem in veterans with disabilities through scuba diving. To date they have graduated 18 certified scuba divers (in just 6 months of operation). No one is accepted in this program unless they are wounded/handicapped veterans.

There are 165,000 disabled veterans in the Inland Empire.

Upland Host Lions Monthly Board Meeting - August, 2016

Board Members In Attendance: Lions Beverly B., Ken B., Terri, Keith, Jim k., Madeleine, Mike and Sandy

Other Members In Attendance: Lions Arlene, Joe, Charlotte, Ken M. and  Tina

Secretary's Report: There was no Board Meeting in July due to the 4th of July Holiday.

Treasurer's Report: Since there was no Board Meeting in July due to the 4th of July Holiday Treasurer Ken B. presented the following financial information, which included June, 2016, for his Report.
Admin Acct.:    June 6, 2016 - $  3,853.58    August 1, 2016 - $4,413.57
Activity Acct.:  June 6, 2016 - $11,587.45    August 1, 2016 - $5959.49

Committee Reports:
Most discussion at this meeting was regarding this years 62nd Annual Fish, Steak and Corn Feed. Status of preparations for this August 5th fund raiser was in the spotlight tonight. All food and other essentials for this annual fund raiser had been procured. The setup crew were asked to be at our Cable Airport storage hanger by 5 PM on Thursday, August 4th. On August 5th, all volunteers for site setup up were asked to be at Upland Memorial Park from 8:30 AM to 2 PM to setup equipment and prepare the kitchen and tables. All other volunteers were asked to be at the Park by 4 PM for final preparation and start serving.

Old Business:
Members were asked to pay their dues (only 6 have paid). Please pay your dues if you have not. The due date for both LCI and the District is near.

Our Membership Committee is making every effort to get Club members energized to bring new members into the Club. All members were asked by Lions Ken M. and Terri bring one guest to our August 15th, meeting with hopes of recruiting some new members from those guests. As a bribe, Lion Ken M. said everyone bringing a guest would get a gift - GO KEN.

New Business:
Our Club has been a long time donor to Guide Dogs of the Desert. A motion was made to change this donation to Guide Dogs For The Blind. This motion is based on the fact that Guide Dogs Of The Desert now has a wait time for new requests of 5 years. Lion Scott Quinlan, President of the Huntington Beach Host Lions applied for a guide dog from Guide Dogs Of The Desert and was told he would have to wait 5 years. He went to Guide Dogs For The Blind and received his guide dog in 6 months. This motion was seconded and approved.

Our Club has contributed to the GAP (God Always Provides) food pantry for the needy. We were recently told they are no longer in business, they lost the warehouse they operated from and decided to close down.  A motion was made, seconded and approved to move this donation from the GAP to the Life Point Church Soul Food Pantry.

It was suggested that the Club take on, as an ongoing project, participation as volunteers in the Life Point Church monthly breakfast for the area homeless people. This breakfast is prepared and served on the 4th Sunday of each month.

At this meeting we, also, talked about a Club get together for a Pot Luck in the Park, participation in the October Opportunity Drawing and the Feed The Children Program.
