Upland Host Lions Monthly Bulletin - April, 2017

Programs:
April 3, 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.

April 17, 2017 - Lion Charlotte was the program chairperson for this meeting. Charlotte had arranged for PDG Ken M. to talk to us. Lion Ken M. spoke to us about District 4-L4 and how it compares with other Districts in in MD-4. Our District is a leader in the MD-4 group of Districts, in most performance categories. We lead everyone in our Diabetes awareness programs and 4-L4 has the most LEOS in all of Lions. We lead MD-4 in support of the Lions Camp at Teresita Pines and the annual Lions Rose Float.

He, further talked about The Lions Camp at Teresita Pines and the Lions Camp At Wrightwood. Ken spoke in depth of the facilities at both of these camps and how it takes support and personal elbow grease of all Lions in MD-4 to maintain and improve these facilities. Teresita Pines covers 3.5 acres, it has 15 sleeping cabins and 4 VIP cabins available plus many other facilities to be used by the campers. Wrightwood Village covers 20+ acres, has 8 sleeping cabins and full facilities for all kinds of camping activities. Wrightwood can accommodate  campers with special needs. Both of these camps welcome groups of all types, not just limited to Lions.

Ken also spoke about our local project, the Chaffey Community Center, and described the many improvements taking place there. Regional Indian Groups are working with the Center to add a typical Indian Village as part of the many historical settings being developed at the site. Our Club has committed to assist the Community Center in continuing this development.

Also, at this meeting the Club's group picture for the 2016/2017 Lions year will be taken. PLEASE plan to attend to share your vote and get in the annual picture.

Tonight Lion Joey presented Certificates of Appreciation to the two Companies who refurbished our eyeglass collection box. These Companies were "Concept Powder Coating" and "Signs Unlimited". These Companies revitalized our old mailbox to a much better condition than it ever has been. The Powder Coating will last many, many years and the graphics, prepared and installed by Signs Unlimited, leave no doubt as to the purpose of the box. We thank them for their gracious contribution of this work for us.

Tonight we had 4 visitors ( in addition to those who received Certificates). Once again we welcomed Lion Sandy Watts mother to our meeting. She is always welcome. We, also, had visitors from the Cucamonga District Host Club with us. Lions Steve Lacey and Barbara and Scotty Barklay visited us to promote their Club's coming fashion show.

Upland Host Lions Monthly Board Meeting - April, 2017

Board Members In Attendance:
Lions Beverly B., Ken B., Terri, Sang, Keith, Jim K., Richard and Sandy

Other Club Members In Attendance:
Lions Joey, Arlene, Joe, Ken M. and Beverly S.

Secretary's Report:
The Secretary's Board Meeting Minutes for March, 2017 were placed on the Club's blog for everyone to review and comment. A motion was made, seconded and approved to accept the Minutes as presented in the blog.

Treasurer's Report:
Treasurer Ken B. reported the Club's financial status as follows:
Admin Acct.:   March 6, 2017 - $ 4,292.58       April 3, 2017 - $ 4,230.67
Activity Acct.: March 6, 2017 - $11,947.15      April 3, 2017 - $11,967.65

Other Committee Reports:
Membership: Lion Ken M. reported that he had recently attended an Upland Chamber of Commerce 2 hour membership class regarding how to market better and how to talk to people. He reported that this was an outstanding class and closely relates to how Lions need to approach recruiting new members. It was a very beneficial class for him. Lion Ken M. plans to attend the Upland Chamber mixer on Thursday, April 13th to spread the word regarding Upland Host Lions and membership.

Annual Fund Raiser: President Jim K. discussed the Club's annual fund raiser. Since we have lost the use of both Community Parks, in Upland, our fund raiser (no longer a "Fishbake/Steak Fry") this year will be held at the Gibson Community Center in Upland. All City documents have been filed and we have obtained our special use permit. This years meal will be provided by the "Habit" and will include sandwiches (Cheeseburgers, BBQ Chicken and Albacore), fries and a soft drink. The Club will provide the dessert which will be hand scooped ice cream.  The ticket cost will be $15.00. We still need to get out and promote sponsorships. The sponsorships are the driving force which makes the annual fund raiser a success.

Visitations: Visitation Chairperson, Lion Beverly S., announced that she has arranged for our Club to visit the Ontario Host Lions Club on April 18th. The meeting will be at the San Joaquin College in Ontario.

LEO Club: Our LEO leader, Lion Joey, announced he will have the LEO Club formation meeting on Monday, April 24th at 6:30 PM and those lions able to attend should to show our Club's support of this important activity for the Club. This meeting is scheduled at the Landacena Community Center.
WE NEED TO GIVE OUR FULL SUPPORT TO JOEY AND THE LEO's.

Old Business:
On April 3, 2017 the Club began a new phase in our life, we moved meeting locations from Maniac Mikes Café to the Upland Landacena Community Center, for our Monthly Board Meetings (1st Monday) and El Perico Ranchero Restaurant for our Monthly General Meeting (3rd Monday). The April 3rd meeting at Landacena was attended by 13 of Club members. The first thing evident was that we have much space for expansion with NEW MEMBERS. We will have our first experience at the El Perico on Monday April 17th.  We adapted well to the new venue.

1st Meeting At Landacena Community Center


1st Meeting At Landacena Community Center
During the meeting we discussed the items mentioned under Committee Reports plus potential fundraisers and charitable causes. The immediate fund raiser discussed was the "Littlest Car Show" in downtown Upland. We were asked to help the City with traffic control and 4 members volunteered. Once again our Club failed. Of the 4 members who volunteered to help only one showed up, Mr. reliable Lion Ken M.. I was one of the no shows so I have no room to criticize this lack of support for the Club. This is continuing to be a major problem and we can't fall back on the crutch that we don't have enough members, that only emphasizes our need to build membership with younger, active members.

New Business:
Club elections will be held at our April 17th meeting. There have been volunteers for all the executive officer positions but if any member is interested in one of those positions (President, Vice President, Treasurer and Secretary) you can make your interest known to the Club prior to the election. In addition to the four executive officers I mentioned there are 18 volunteer positions still to be assigned to responsible Club members. These Club jobs are all listed on pages 5 and 6 of last years booklet. If you are asked to fill one or more of these position please consider accepting.

It is time, once again, for the Club's annual group picture. As you know this picture is used for the annual Club Booklet. The picture will be taken at the Club's meeting on May 1, 2017. Please, please arrange your schedule so that you may attend this meeting.

Other fund raisers and volunteer opportunities discussed were:
  1. Comedy night
  2. Candy apple sale
  3. Cooper Museum Toys For Tots  Car Show 
  4. The Hops W/ Pops 5K, Car Show and Pancake Breakfast
  5. A Feed The Children Fundraiser, and
  6. May 6th Health Fair at the Cucamonga Valley Medical Group on San Bernardino Rd.
Requests For Donations:
We have received no new requests for donations.

Donations Made:
No donations were made this month.

Next Meeting:
The Club's next meeting will be on April 17, 2017, 6:30 PM at El Perico Ranchero Restaurant, 1401 E. Foothill Blvd,. Upland (1st meeting at this location). This will be our monthly General Meeting, the Club fee will be $5.00 and the dinner cost will be whatever you order from the menu. The new Club phone number is 909-490-1559.

Adjournment:
After much discussion, all items on the meeting agenda were covered and the Board Meeting was adjourned .

Keep Smiling
Have a great Month

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.

Some discussion regarding the new LEO Club costs was opened but our LEO Liaison (Lion Joey) was unable to attend this meeting so this item was tabled until a future date. Lion Joey and President Jim were able to get together and decide on some of the items Joey should order to meet his first meeting date. Club items and Member supplies were given the go ahead and were ordered to meet the projected date.

New Business:
An addition to the Club's "Standing Rules" was presented for the Club's consideration. This change was presented to better clarify Club Executive Officer responsibilities. The change (addition) was moved, seconded and approved, with two dissensions. The modified rule is as follows:

2.  Club Executive Officers (President, Vice President, Treasurer and Secretary): Club Executive Officers must be available for all meetings. If a Club Executive Officer is unable to make a meeting he/she must arrange for another Club member to fill the position for that meeting. If the Club Executive Officer misses more than 4 consecutive meetings due to personal schedule conflicts, or fails to arrange for a temporary replacement, his/her resignation from his/her Officer position will be requested. If the Officer is absent for an extended period due to illness or family situations the Executive Board will name a temporary replacement.

With the help of Lion Michael our Club volunteered to man the pancake breakfast facility at the first annual HOPS WITH POPS 5K RUN on Saturday, June 17th. This will be a fund raiser for our Club in that we will receive a portion of the pancake breakfast income for our Club.

In previous years Claremont had always provided several excellent speakers. This year, due to failure to be able to communicate with the advisor, we had to cancel the contest at the last minute.

The Foothill Zone "A" Student Speaker contest will be held on March 7th at Lions Center East.

On Saturday February 25th The LEOs District talent show is scheduled. Lions Joey and Ken M., from our Club, will attend.

On Monday, March 13th Our Club President, Lion Jim K. and Lion Joey will make a presentation to the Upland City Council. This presentation will highlight our newly refurbished Eyeglass Collection Box (Mail Box), which is located between City Hal and the Fire Department, and the proposed establishment of a City wide LEO's Club. We will thank the City for allowing us to place the eyeglass collection box between the City facilities and create an awareness of our intent to engage the Upland City youth with Lions through a LEO Club.

Upland Host Lions have been invited to attend the Charter Night for the new Chino High School LEO Club. A motion was made and approved to contribute $150 to the Chino High LEO Club to help cover the cost to Charter the Club. Welcome Chino High LEOs.

On February 9th our Club Visited the Ontario/Upland Lions Club. Five of our Club Members made the visitation.

There was no activity reported on membership this month.
 
LEO Club:
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. All Lions are urged to attend this meeting, wearing their yellow vests to provide Club visibility. Lion Terri will organize the presentation.

Adjournment:
Having covered all items on the meetings agenda and with no further items brought up for discussion, this Board Meeting was adjourned.
