On Saturday, April 18th a District Meeting was held in Pomona and 6 of our members attended. This was an excellent meeting and many topics were discussed. Most vital to our Club and, it seems, many others, was a presentation titled "taxation and Lions Clubs". It seems that many Clubs have run a-foul of the taxation requirements effecting all U.S. Lions Clubs. These requirements are covered by both Federal and State tax laws and can have serious impacts upon the Clubs. PDG Howard Hudson from A3 was our speaker and he did a great job covering the various Federal and State taxation requirements. Everything he covered was pertinent to our Club (to many items to cover in this report). several items he emphasized specifically impact us:
  1. Fish Bake - tax only on ticket sales not on sponsor donation.
  2. Raffles must be registered with the Attorney General.
  3.  Clubs should have a bond on the Treasurer.
  4. The Club's Standing Rules should include tax requirements.
  5. If  our Club is Incorporated we must file Bi-annually with the Secretary Of State.
This month our used eye glass collector (Lion Jim T.) collected 270 prescription eye glasses for donation to the District.
Visitations:
No visitation were made in April, 2015
 
Next Meeting:
Our next meeting will be on May 4th at 6:30 PM at maniac Mike's Café at cable Airport.

On March 21st Upland Host Lions hosted a fund raiser at the Life Point Church. This was a (clean) Comedy Night and a fund raiser to help a private group planning a Memorial to all the veterans in the Upland Area. The Memorial is to be large multi sided obelisk recognizing all of our Country's military branches and their protection of the American way of life. In addition to the obelisk there will be a wall with the names of all those Upland service personnel who gave their lives in protection of our Country. The Memorial is projected to cost over $400,000 and the Upland host Lions donation will help achieve that goal. 
 
 
 
The maximum capacity of the Life Point Church facility is 120 people and we had close to a full house. The tickets sold for $15.00 (including a hot dog, chips and a drink) or $12.00 without the snack. In addition to the tickets we sold drinks, candy, popcorn and 50/50 raffle tickets at the Comedy Night. The winner of the 50/50 raffle won $106.00 and then donated it all back to the Club. This was a very successful fund raiser and we will make a substantial donation to the Monument Committee.
