Old Business: Some time ago we had a request from Lion Scott Quinlan requesting help from District 4L-4 Clubs to assist financially with his training to use a guide dog. It has now been reported that he has found another source for getting the funding he needed for training with his guide dog.

New Business: It appears that the Club's Bell (the big one) was stolen from the storage hanger. Other items were taken but nothing else belonging to the Club. We still have the small bell we used for Atria Del Rey and will use it in our meetings.

The Club 50/50 raffle was for $1021.00 tonight. No one won the 50/50 so the entire $1,021.00 will be rolled back into the Administrative Account and the 50/50 will start over at $0.00 for the next meeting ( January 19, 2015).

The next District 4L-4 meeting will be held on January 24th at Khoury's Restaurant in Long Beach. Cost will be $22.00 per person.

On January 10th the Annual Melvin Jones Dinner will be held on the Queen Mary in Long Beach. A motion was made, seconded and approved for the Club to pay for attendance by our newest Melvin Jones recipients, Lions Joe and Arlene.

Since Atria Del Rey is no longer a branch Club it was suggested that President Ken B. talk to them and propose that our Club is still interested in working with them on projects but will no longer attend meetings there.

The annual Cable Air Show is Scheduled for the weekend of January 10th and 11th. Due to permit requirements Lion Michael has decided not to operate his breakfast/hamburger stand this year. Therefore, our Club will not be participating this year.

Lion Tina donated 18 inches of hair to be used for cancer victims. For those of you that do not know Tina's new married name is - Kristina Stewart Weaver.

The Club had two visitors at this meeting, Mr. Ralph Cavalo and Ken Hargrave. These gentlemen represented the Upland Veterans Monument Committee. Their committee is proposing a 5 sided granite monument, to be located between the Upland Public Library and Upland City Hall. The 5 sides will represent each of our Country's military organizations (Army, Navy, Marines, Air Force and Coast Guard). There is no Monument on the West Coast recognizing the sacrifices of our servicemen and women during our Country's wars. These gentlemen will be traveling across the Country promoting the funding of this monument. The monument will be 14 feet high and will weigh 2,400 pounds, its cost will be $400,000.00.

LAST, BUT MOST IMPORTANT, Lion Jim Pilling's Memorial Service will be held on January 17th at the home of his son. His son, Tim Pilling, lives at 11010 Aries Way, Mira Loma, CA. The service is to held at 11:30AM and lunch will be served. Any questions regarding the service please call 425-765-9614. Club members are urged to attend this memorial, Jim was a very long time member of Upland Host Lions.
