Upland Host Lions Monthly Bulletin - April 18, 2016

 
Programs - April, 2016:
April 4, 2016 - Monthly Board Meeting. Minutes of this meeting were prepared and placed on the Club's blog for everyone to review and comment.

April 18, 2016 - Our program tonight was a Service Project. One of our members recently met the Director of Mariposa Community Services (a branch of New Hope - Homeless Outreach & Services) and they discussed the need for hygiene items for the homeless. Mariposa Community Services provides Clothing, Hygiene Items, Blankets and other survival needs.  This Community Service was brought back and discussed at the Club and we decided to participate by preparing hygiene bags for them. Club members began collecting items for the bags. Over a period of several weeks we collected combs, socks, toothbrushes, lip balm, toothpaste, wash cloths, and many other items for the bags. Tonight all Club members assembled bags of these items for the donation. At the end of the evening the Club had assembled 60 bags to donate to Mariposa Community Services. These bags will be distributed to the needy and homeless people in our area.

On April 2nd and 3rd, 2016 a Health Fair was held at the Anaheim Convention Center. Unfortunately prior to those dates the original sponsor backed out. District Governor Ken M. was asked if Lions would assume sponsorship and after some thought and discussion with Clubs in the District it was agreed that Lions would sponsor this Health Fair. We used the District 4-L4 Sight and Hearing Van and with the help of several Clubs and LEOs in the District we had a very successful Health Fair. During the Fair we conducted 160 eye exams and provided new glasses for 130 people. During this Fair many other needs were taken care of such as dental exams, physical exams of all sorts and etc. were taken care of during the two day period. Over 1,000 people were screened by all the different medical services available.

Other Club Members In Attendance: Lions Charlotte, Ken M., Tina, Mike, Beverly S., Richard and Jim T.

Secretary's Report: The Secretary's March, 2016 Board Meeting Minutes was placed on the Club's blog for all members to review and comment. A motion was made, seconded and unanimously approved to accept the Minutes as presented.

Treasurers Report: Treasurer Ken B. presented the following information for his report
Admin. Acct.:  March 7, 2016  -- $  3,351.26   April 4, 2016 $  3739.70
Activity Acct.: March 7, 2016 --  $13,167.20   April 4, 2016 $12,768.13

Other Committee Reports:
Lion Keith and Governor Ken M. talked briefly about fundraisers. It was suggested that we have another Comedy Night. Governor Ken M. said he would talk to the lady who sets up the Comedy Nights and try to arrange a night and location for it. Lion Keith referred to a flyer from the Harbor Mesa Lions promoting their TACO FIESTA FUND RAISER. This fund raiser looks like the type we could do with very little effort from the Club members. Many restaurants have fund raising programs which we could use with little physical effort from our members. It would just mean finding a location that would work with us and our Club members working hard to promote the Fund Raiser. We would need to get out and promote it through all the Clubs in District 4-L4, all our friends and out in the community.

For all of our fund raisers, whatever the fundraiser, our Club Members should consider it a personal commitment and challenge to promote and support the effort. Our commitment to Service depends on the funds we can raise to support community charitable organizations and our personal involvement in whatever organization we can help..

Old Business:
The Region Student Speaker Contest was held on March 29th and the speaker from the Cucamonga Host Lions Club won. Congratulations Cucamonga Host.

On April 2nd and 3rd Upland Host Lions sponsored a Health Fair at the Anaheim Convention Center. We had the District Sight and Hearing Van at the Health Fair and it was manned by Lions from several Clubs. From our Club Lions Ken M., Keith and Jim K. were there to give eye exams. During the two day affair we provided exams for 160 people and 131 of those people received new glasses.

Another Health Fair is scheduled for early December, 2016 and we hope to have Club volunteers to participate in that Health Fair.

The Club is participating in an effort to put together hygiene bags for Upland's needy citizens. A list of items to be donated was handed out to all Club members and you are asked to bring what you can to our April 18th meeting so that we may put the hygiene bags together.

New Business:
On Saturday, April 16th, the last District 4-L4 meeting for Governor Ken M's. year in office is scheduled. We have 6 Club members who indicated they would be at this meeting and it is important that we attend to honor our Club Member and District Governor Lion Ken Myers.

Programs - March, 2016
March 7, 2019 - This was the Club's Monthly Board Meeting. The Minutes of this meeting were prepared and placed on the Club's blog for everyone to review and comment.

March 21, 23016 - Our speaker today was Mr. Don Gordon, American Red Cross Program Manager for San Bernardino County. Lion Ken B., who is a Red Cross Volunteer, arranged this program. Mr. Gordon Spent 30 years as an Orange County Fire Authority Paramedic. As a retiree he decided he wanted to continue his service so he volunteered with the Red Cross. After some time with the Red Cross he accepted a job with them and became the San Bernardino County Program Manager and has been doing this for the past 6 years.

The Red Cross is composed of 94% volunteers. Their goal is to prevent  and/or alleviate human suffering during disasters. They provide shelter and food for those in need. They spend a great deal of time preparing for disasters such as earthquakes and El Ninios. The Red Cross works with community partners to teach how to serve victims of all types of disasters. They teach how to shelter and feed those in need.

Our own Lion Ben B, is part of a local disaster action team. They provide emotional assistance, shelter, food and recovery assistance to those in need.

The Red Cross reaches out to other groups, organizations and communities for help and provide training. The Red Cross reaches out to all service clubs (like Lions), churches, communities and any other service organizations interested in participating. Mr. Gordon offered to conduct classes for our Club , if we are interested.

Lastly, he cited the Waterman (San Bernardino) shootings as an example of where the Red Cross provides help in emergency times. The Red Cross was on site almost immediately after this terrorist attack to offer aid to those impacted by it.

On February 15, 2016 Our Club held its 2016 Student Speaker Contest. We had two students from Claremont High School as our contestants. The contestants were:
  1. Jack Xiao - Freshman
  2. Sophia Jung - Junior
The winner of our contest was Jack Xiao, Freshman at Claremont High School. Jack will go on to the Foothill Zone Contest as the next level of competition. Both students did outstanding presentations of this years speech topic.


Jack Xiao, Lion Michael, Sophia Jung

I might add that our winner, Jack Xiao, is an outstanding young man in many ways. In addition to many other accomplishments he is a concert pianist and has, at the age of 14, performed twice at Carnegie Hall. His very proud mother has invited our Club Members to attend his concert scheduled for 1 PM, Sunday, May 15th, 2016, at William J. Huff Recital Hall, 951 West Foothill Blvd., Claremont (Admission is free).

Old Business: President Jim K. reviewed several Flyers he had received from other District Clubs, promoting their various Fund Raising Events.

Governor Ken M., reported that he had attended the District Leo Club Talent Contest. Governor Ken was very impressed by the talents of these young Leo Club Members. He stated that several were so good that he is going to invite them to perform at a future District Cabinet Meeting. It sounds like that would be a very good meeting to attend.

Discussion of our Annual Fish Bake was, again, and will continue to be a topic of the Club's meetings. We discussed replacing the sponsor business card booklet with a banner which we could display at all the events in which we participate. The banner will list the identity of each of our sponsors and will categorized as Platinum, Gold and Silver. The categories would signify the level of giving and determine the size in which the name is displayed. There was much discussion of how we would use the banner.

It was also suggested that we have a collection box for business cards to be used at the Chamber of Commerce Mixers. These business card could then be used as entrees when making contacts for Fish Bake sponsorships.

We had a brief discussion of the Club's charitable giving. The Executive Committee had discussed this item in a separate meeting and we had agreed to go through the charitable giving list and cut it down to local charities. President Jim stated that he would bring a recommended list to the next Club meeting.

New Business: Our Club has been asked if we would participate in this years annual car show sponsored by the Cooper Museum. They asked if we would put on a pancake breakfast for this event.  After much discussion it was decided that we could not do a pancake breakfast but we would offer to host a breakfast of hot coffee, donuts, Danish and juice.

On April 2nd and 3rd a health fair is scheduled to be held at the Anaheim Convention Center. Eye screening will be part of this fair and we have been asked for volunteers to man the eye screening facility. Governor Ken has asked that our Club provide volunteers for this health fair.

Lion Richard asked if our Club has its own constitution and the response was no, we go by the LCI Constitution. Richard felt strongly that each Club should have its own Constitution. The Club will look at developing our own constitution.

The need for hygiene items for the homeless was brought up for discussion. There is a significant need for these items for the communities homeless population. It was agreed that our Club members would bring hygiene items and new socks and wash cloths to our April Board meeting so that we may put packages together for the homeless.

Visitations: None planned for our Club in March, 2016. On March 21st, at our meeting, the Rialto Host Lions Club plans to visit us.

Programs - February, 2016
February 1, 2016 - Todays meeting was a combined General Meeting/Board Meeting. This combined meeting was necessary due to the Student Speaker Contest which is scheduled for our regular February 15th meeting.

Lion Jerry McJunkin, the District 4-L4 Environmental Chairperson, spoke with us today about the Cal Trans Adopt a Highway Program. Lion Jerry stated that the Adopt a Highway Program has not been adopted by our District as a District sponsored program but it has been adopted by other Districts in California. This program is conducted by Cal Trans to eliminate trash and other litter from building up along our highways. The program is designed with safety of participants as its primary concern and Cal Trans along with Lions, conducts safety programs for the participants. This program provides visibility for Lions in community activity and aids Cal Trans in preventing our highways from becoming littered with trash. A number of Clubs in our District have joined in this effort. When a Club becomes part of Adopt a Highway they agree to maintaining both sides of the highway for a length of two miles and actively doing cleanup work for the full length at least once per month. As part of his responsibility as Environmental Chairperson Lion Jerry is asking Clubs to join in this effort.

Upland Host Lions Monthly Bulletin - January, 2016

Programs - January, 2016:
January 4, 2016 - Club's Monthly Board Meeting. The Minutes of this meeting were prepared and placed on the Club's blog for everyone to review and comment.

January 18, 2016 - Lion Ken B. was scheduled to have our program today but due to some misunderstandings we had no program for this meeting. Instead of our program today we discussed our 2015/2016 donation budget and Fishbake items. A question was asked by several of our members as to why we are 6 months into our Lion year and have yet to make any of our major donations. A motion was made to identify:
  1. Reserves to be maintained to cover our 2016 Fishbake
  2. Reserves to be maintained going into the 2016/2017 Lion year
  3. Identify commitments made to donations for the 2015/2016 Lion year
  4. Prioritize commitments and make donations
Lion Tina brought up the sponsor booklet that we have handed out, at the Fishbake, for the past several years. The cost for producing the booklet was discussed along with alternative ways to publicize and give visibility to our sponsors. It was decided we will investigate preparing a banner with all our sponsors listed. This banner could be displayed at all of our public functions thus giving our sponsors added visibility. We will also consider identifying, on the banner, various levels (monetary levels) of sponsorship such as Platinum,  Gold and Silver.
