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.
