Upland Host Lions Monthly Bulletin / Board Meeting - February, 2016

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.

The major Board Meeting item discussed at todays meeting was the status of the Club's Charitable Giving. The Charitable Giving  Budget is totally funded by the Club's Activity Account. The Club voted, several years ago, to guarantee and set aside  funding of  $5,000 for our school eye exam and new glasses program and hold $5,000 for our annual Fishbake cost contingency. After holding these two amounts of money our past year donation funds amounted to $6,425.
