Upland Host Lions Monthly Bulletin - March, 2017

Programs - March, 2017:
March 6, 2017 - This meeting was the Club's monthly Board Meeting. Meeting Minutes were prepared and placed on the Club's blog for everyone to review and comment.

March 20, 2017 - Lion Keith was the program Chair for this meeting. Unfortunately our scheduled speaker was not able to attend due to medical circumstances. Therefore, the Club was able to discuss other pressing issues.
  1. Lion Joey talked to us about the status of his work to develop Upland Host Lions first LEO Club. Joey had ordered the necessary supplies to get the LEO Club started but has been informed by LCI that the Club must have been formed and chartered prior to ordering the supplies. LCI had already charged the Club's credit card for the supplies but agreed to refund the money which can be, again, submitted when their requirements are met.
  2. A number of high school students were at the March 13, Upland City Council Meeting and Joey used the opportunity to hand out flyers regarding the LEO Club formation.
  3. This year has been a very strange one for planning our annual Fishbake/Steak Fry  fund raiser. We were told we couldn't use the Memorial Park facility because it is being renovated. The committee then arranged for us to have the fund raiser at Upland Magnolia Park and had agreed on the dates. Now we are told we can't use Magnolia Park because it will be undergoing remodel at the time requested. So, President Jim K. has now made arrangements for us to use Gibson Senior Center facilities. The format of the fund raiser is still under discussion. To be decided is whether we are going to continue the traditional Fish/Steak Fry or totally change to another food arrangement.
  4. Lion Beverly S. asked about the LCI student peace poster contest and the Club's interest sponsoring this contest in our community (the Upland Schools). It was agreed the Club is interested in this contest if we can determine the interest of area schools. Lion Beverly volunteered to check with the schools to determine their interest.
  5. With our change of meeting locations the question arose regarding our member cost per meeting. It was decided the cost per member at each meeting will be $5.00. When we have our meeting at El Perico the only additional cost will be the charge for the food you order for your meal.
  6. Several additional items were discussed at the meeting but they were not immediately pending, therefore, they will be discussed further at a later date.

President Jim K.
Good Evening Mayor Stone, Members of the Upland City Council Members and Guests

My Name is Jim Krumwiede and I am President of the Upland Host Lions Club. With me tonight in the audience are several members of our Club. For those of you who are not familiar with Lions, our Club is one of 46,000 Lions Clubs world-wide; numbering 1.4 million members. As the worlds largest volunteer service organization, Lions Clubs International is the only such group recognized with a seat in the United Nations. Founded in 1917, this year marks the centennial of the Lions Clubs.

Our local Club has been continually serving the needs of Upland residents for the past 92 of those 100 years. We are a group of individuals representing all ages and backgrounds, who strive to make a difference  through serving and supporting the humanitarian needs of our surrounding community.

I and my fellow Lions are here tonight to briefly share some information about two items pertaining to the Lions -
The first - As part of our centennial ... a re-visit to what we do...
The second - Our LEOs Club; information about something new...

So you THINK you know Lions... but...
Perhaps you've seen the banners for our annual Steak and Fish Fry fundraiser at Memorial Park (or even attended) Where we work to raise funds for many worthy local charities....or maybe you've seen us ring a bell for the Salvation Army during Holidays. Or perhaps you've seen our yellow vests at one of our City's parades.
These things are what most people associate with the Lions.... 

One thing we do may NOT be well known to many of you. And it is by far, our most important task and enduring legacy.

Back in 1925 Helen Keller challenged the Lions Clubs to become "The Knights of the Blind in the Crusade Against Darkness". Since then Lions have worked tirelessly to aid the blind and visually impaired. On an International level, Lions initiatives and funding have targeted the major causes of blindness: cataracts, childhood blindness, glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy and many others.

On a local level, the Upland Host Lions Club funds and administers several activities specifically intended to provide for vision related medical needs of our residents who cannot afford these services.

The Upland Lions collect good used glasses at many locations throughout the City to be cleaned, tested, catalogued and then donated to those who  need them. Perhaps you've seen the collection boxes at the library or doctors offices. Through this effort over the past year almost 2,500 pairs of used (but re-usable) glasses have been collected by the Upland Lions. Throughout Southern California, a similar effort by many Lions Clubs working to0gether have collected over 51,000 pairs of re-usable glasses, over the past year.

I would like to share something that we are very proud of....
This is our oldest and newest collection box, located in the parking lot east of the Upland Public Library and City Hall. Originally donated to the Upland Lions Club by the Post Office and installed many years ago, the Lions (with help from some local businesses) recently refurbished it with new bright yellow powder coating and updated signage. Please go by and check it out when you get a chance.

In addition to collecting glasses... Upland Host Lions work throughout the year with many other Clubs to conduct sight clinics throughout Southern California, where people can come and have their eyes examined by trained personnel. Here attendees can receive medical referrals. glasses prescriptions and or good used glasses, that match their prescription; all at no charge.

Finally, the Upland Lions work in conjunction with the Upland School District's medical staff and a local optical lab to provide free eye exams and new glasses for school children whose families could not otherwise afford them. During the past year 85 Upland School children have received eye exams and glasses, eye care through the Upland Host Lions.

With That...
We ask that you please continue to support our vision care efforts, including our glasses collections and community fund raising programs.

The Upland Host Lions Club greatly appreciates the ongoing support of the residents and community leaders of Upland. We are looking forward to continued success during our Next 100 years!

Oh... and we are always looking for new members!

With that I would like to introduce my fellow Lion Joey Amaro. Joey is involved in an exciting new effort to start our first LEO's Club. At this point Joey outlined the Club's plan for a new LEO Club.

Lion Joey Amaro
Visitations:
On Wednesday, March 22nd, members of Upland Host Lions visited the Cucamonga Host Lions. Upland Host Lions in attendance were Lions Joe, Arlene, Joey and President Jim K.
 
Next Meeting:
The Club's next meeting will be our Monthly Board meeting for April, 2017. This meeting will be on April 3rd at the Landacena Community Center at 6:30 PM. The Landacena Community Center is located at 1325 San Bernardino Road in Upland. Dessert by Lion Keith.

UHL Club Members have been working diligently to get a new LEO Club started in the Upland area. The first meeting is tentatively scheduled for the last Monday of March from 6:30 to 7:30 PM. Lions Joey and Terri have been doing a great deal of work to get this new Club up and running.
 
Existing LEO Clubs in District 4-L4 have scheduled a talent show in Stanton on February 25th. UHL Club Members are urged to form carpools and attend to get a feel for LEO Club activities.
 
Old Business:

Student Speaker Contest:
This years Student Speaker Contest is scheduled at 6:30PM Thursday, February 16th. The Contest will be held in the trailer at Cable Airport (where we held the Contest in past years). Lion Mike is the Chairperson for this Contest.
 
Annual Fishbake:
Brief discussion of our Annual Fund Raiser (Fishbake ???) took place. Lions Ken M., Beverly S., Richard and Jim K. met as a group and toured the facilities at Magnolia Park. Magnolia Park is a very viable site to consider for our relocation.
 
Relocation of Club Meeting Site:
Effective April 1st the Club meeting location will change. The team mentioned above in the Fishbake discussion also evaluated new locations for the Club meetings. They looked at Magnolia Park and the Upland Landecena Community Center facilities. Either of these facilities would be viable for the move but the Landecena Community Center would charge us $100 for use of the room. Both sites would require a caterer like we have now at Maniac Mikes. Lion Joey suggested that we should look for a restaurant where we would only pay for the food and no room rental. He is familiar with a Mexican restaurant called the El Perito Rancho on Foothill Blvd. that may be a good location. Joey will check with the restaurant and get back to us.
 
Upland City Council Presentation:
A presentation to the Upland City Council regarding our refurbished Eyeglass Collection Box and our development of an Upland LEO Club was discussed. This presentation will provide community visibility  for Upland Host lions and our ongoing activities. The presentation is scheduled for 7:00PM , Monday, March 13th.

There was a discussion of the Club's budgets, with an indication that both the Activities and Administrative budgets had been reviewed and approved at the Club's 12/19/2016 meeting. Further discussion of the Administrative budget followed and it was agreed that more clarity was needed on both budgets and they will be discussed at a future meeting.

As we have every year, at this time, discussions of the 2017 Fish/Steak Fry began. Club President Jim K. has been investigating locations for the 2017 affair. He stated that Memorial Park is currently closed to the public and will be for 6 months or more. The City of Upland is in the process of upgrading the park.

President Jim also investigate the possibilities of using Magnolia Park. He talked to City representatives and has tentatively reserved the Magnolia Park for the Club. He checked the gas availability, cooking facilities and seating / table availability. Everything needed for our Fish/Steak Fry seemed to be available at that site. Although there is a gas supply he needs further investigation regarding our ability to attach the corn cookers to that supply.

We had further discussion about new community signs, food alternatives, entertainment and perhaps reorganization of the Club's entire fund raising effort. We talked about getting away from the Fish/Steak Fry venue and using food vendors such as In N Out Burgers and other means to attract adults and their children to revitalize our efforts.

New Business:
No other new business was discussed.

Next Meeting:
The Club's next meeting is scheduled for Monday, January 23, 2017, 6:30 PM at Maniac Mikes Café. This will be our Monthly General Meeting and dinner will be provided.

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

Old Business:
The Upland Host Lions annual Holiday Party was held on Monday, December 5th at Maniac Mike's Café.

On December 10th The City of Upland held their annual Christmas Parade. Upland Host Lions helped with parade organization and crowd control. This year there were 104 entries in the parade and a lot of coordination was required. The Lions of District 4-L4 were represented by our District Governor Lion Bob Susaeta riding in the parade.

During our October and November, 2016, Board Meetings we had discussed refurbishing the Club's eye glass collection box (old mailbox). The Ontario Lions Club Had offered to refurbish the box if they could share the eye glasses collected in it. Our Club declined the offer and Lion Joey stated that he does business with a powder coating company and he would see what they would charge us to refinish it. He checked and the company said they would sand blast and refinish the box for the Club at no charge. Joey further checked on placing the identifying Lions Logo and necessary eye glass collection identifiers on the box  Lion Joey volunteered to deliver the mail box to the powder coaters, place the proper decals on the box and reinstall it for the Club. The total cost for the decals would be $70 to $80. A motion was made, seconded and approved to have Lion Joey go ahead and take care of the Eye Glass collection box. THANK YOU JOEY.

We had discussion of the future of our annual Fish Bake which included relocation, facility needs, changes to menu and physical assistance requirements. To perpetuate this annual activity we must consider possible major changes to assure its continuation. More discussion to come.

New Business:
AS OF JANUARY 1, 2017 THE CLUB'S DUES ARE DUE FOR THE 1ST 6 MONTH PAYMENT.
 
New for this meeting, but not new to Club discussions  was a presentation put together by Lion Joey regarding the development of a new LEOs Club in Upland. Lion Joey ( a former LEO) had put together a plan for forming a new Club. He addressed a proposed location, the costs as they pertained to LCI, ongoing fees, facilities and costs to individuals or the Upland Host Lions Club to equip and maintain individual members. There is an initial startup or charter fee to LCI of $100 and an ongoing annual LCI fee of $100. In addition there are a number of individual costs to be considered for the LEOs Club. Lion Joey did a good job of identifying the requirements of starting and maintaining a new Club. Further discussion and action will be undertaken.
