Other Committee Reports:
Lion Keith and Governor Ken M. talked briefly about fundraisers. It was suggested that we have another Comedy Night. Governor Ken M. said he would talk to the lady who sets up the Comedy Nights and try to arrange a night and location for it. Lion Keith referred to a flyer from the Harbor Mesa Lions promoting their TACO FIESTA FUND RAISER. This fund raiser looks like the type we could do with very little effort from the Club members. Many restaurants have fund raising programs which we could use with little physical effort from our members. It would just mean finding a location that would work with us and our Club members working hard to promote the Fund Raiser. We would need to get out and promote it through all the Clubs in District 4-L4, all our friends and out in the community.
For all of our fund raisers, whatever the fundraiser, our Club Members should consider it a personal commitment and challenge to promote and support the effort. Our commitment to Service depends on the funds we can raise to support community charitable organizations and our personal involvement in whatever organization we can help..
The Region Student Speaker Contest was held on March 29th and the speaker from the Cucamonga Host Lions Club won. Congratulations Cucamonga Host.
On April 2nd and 3rd Upland Host Lions sponsored a Health Fair at the Anaheim Convention Center. We had the District Sight and Hearing Van at the Health Fair and it was manned by Lions from several Clubs. From our Club Lions Ken M., Keith and Jim K. were there to give eye exams. During the two day affair we provided exams for 160 people and 131 of those people received new glasses.
Another Health Fair is scheduled for early December, 2016 and we hope to have Club volunteers to participate in that Health Fair.
