Committee Reports:Most discussion at this meeting was regarding this years 62nd Annual Fish, Steak and Corn Feed. Status of preparations for this August 5th fund raiser was in the spotlight tonight. All food and other essentials for this annual fund raiser had been procured. The setup crew were asked to be at our Cable Airport storage hanger by 5 PM on Thursday, August 4th. On August 5th, all volunteers for site setup up were asked to be at Upland Memorial Park from 8:30 AM to 2 PM to setup equipment and prepare the kitchen and tables. All other volunteers were asked to be at the Park by 4 PM for final preparation and start serving.
Old Business:Members were asked to pay their dues (only 6 have paid). Please pay your dues if you have not. The due date for both LCI and the District is near.
Our Membership Committee is making every effort to get Club members energized to bring new members into the Club. All members were asked by Lions Ken M. and Terri bring one guest to our August 15th, meeting with hopes of recruiting some new members from those guests. As a bribe, Lion Ken M. said everyone bringing a guest would get a gift - GO KEN.
Our Club has been a long time donor to Guide Dogs of the Desert. A motion was made to change this donation to Guide Dogs For The Blind. This motion is based on the fact that Guide Dogs Of The Desert now has a wait time for new requests of 5 years. Lion Scott Quinlan, President of the Huntington Beach Host Lions applied for a guide dog from Guide Dogs Of The Desert and was told he would have to wait 5 years. He went to Guide Dogs For The Blind and received his guide dog in 6 months. This motion was seconded and approved.
Our Club has contributed to the GAP (God Always Provides) food pantry for the needy. We were recently told they are no longer in business, they lost the warehouse they operated from and decided to close down. A motion was made, seconded and approved to move this donation from the GAP to the Life Point Church Soul Food Pantry.
It was suggested that the Club take on, as an ongoing project, participation as volunteers in the Life Point Church monthly breakfast for the area homeless people. This breakfast is prepared and served on the 4th Sunday of each month.
At this meeting we, also, talked about a Club get together for a Pot Luck in the Park, participation in the October Opportunity Drawing and the Feed The Children Program.
On September 10th our Club will participate, with three other Club's, on a Lions Friends In Sight Vision Clinic to be held at the Sultana Academy in Ontario.
