Unfortunately The Upland Host Lions Student Speaker Contest had to be canceled at the last minute. We began in October, 2016 contacting the Student advisor at Claremont High School to arrange for speakers for this contest and felt everything was on track. 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.

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

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.

Our eyeglass mailbox committee of one (Lion Joey)  reported the eyeglass collection box is now back at its home, near City Hall.

Membership:
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.

Lions: Joey, and Tina

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

Treasurer's Report:
The Club Treasurer was unable to attend this meeting, therefore we had no January, 2017 Report.
Admin Acct.:   Dec. 19, 2016 - $4,453.21    Jan. 9, 2017 Not Reported
Activity Acct.: Dec. 19, 2016 - $13,483.65  Jan. 9, 2017 Not Reported

Other Committee Reports:
Our one man eyeglass/mailbox committee, composed of Joey, has completed refurbishment of the eyeglass/mail box. The box was removed from its permanent location by Joey, taken to the powder coater, sandblasted, acid cleaned and then powder coated. Lion Joey then had Lion Logos and eyeglass collection box identification decals prepared. He will install the decals and re-install the box in its original location. Thanks to Joey the powder coating was done gratis and the decals cost the club only $80.00.

Old Business:
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.

Requests For Donations:
No new requests were received.

Donations Made:
No donations were made

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.

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.
