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.

Ontario Host offered to have the mail box powder coated and new decals put on it. Lion Joey stated that he had a powder coating company do work for him and he could see what they would charge us to powder coat the mailbox. Many members objected to sharing the mail box and favored Joey's getting information to have it done by our Club. It was decided to wait for Lions Joey's information before making the final decision.

During our discussion of Club membership Lion Ken Myers stated he had been approached by a teacher from one of our local schools and they discussed starting a LEOs Club for their 7th and 8th graders.

Upland Host Lions Monthly Bulletin - October, 2016

Programs - October, 2016:
October 3, 2016 - This Meeting was the Club's October, 2016 Monthly Board Meeting. Unfortunately, your Writer/Editor/Publisher was unable to attend that meeting and could not produce the Minutes of the meeting.

October 17, 2016 - This meeting was the Upland Host Lions opportunity to Host District 4-L4, 2016/2017 Governor Bob Susaeta and members of his Cabinet and have them share their vision for the Districts 2016/2017 Lion Year. Governor Susaeta opened by stating his vision for the District "Joining Hands In Service". We can attain this vision by all the Clubs in the District working together. The Governor went on to say there are 46,000 Clubs in 210 country's worldwide with 1.4 million members. There are Lions Clubs in many places not normally thought of as locations for Lions Clubs. As an example, Clubs are located in the Vatican City, China and Lions are the only service organization to have a seat at the UN. LCI has been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize. In California there are 731 Lions Clubs with 20,365 members. During the past year District 4-L4 has grown from 1,231 members to 1,336. 

Governor Susaeta also talked to us about the LCIF which was founded in 1968. LCIF has distributed $950,000,000 in funds to Matching Grants and Lions Charities. One of its prime causes has been the elimination of River Blindness. They have been successful in eliminating River Blindness in South America and are now working to eliminate it in Africa. Close to home LCIF funded three new vision cameras for District 4-L4 and continues to fund the Friends In Sight activities.

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.

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.
