Programs - September, 2016September (August 29,) 2016 - Due to the Labor day Holiday on September 5th The Club voted to hold the September, 2016 Monthly Board Meeting on August 29th. The Minutes of that Board Meeting were placed on the Club's blog for everyone to review and comment.
September 19, 2016 - Our program planned for today did not materialize, therefore, we discussed other items of interest to the Club. We had several visitors at our meeting today. We were honored to have 8 visitors from the Ontario/Upland Lions Club. They visited us today to invite us to their Outback Fund Raiser scheduled for November 14th. Kyle Schneider, Vice President of "Dive Warriors", was an invited guest to receive our Club's donation to the Dive Warriors organization.
President Jim K. discussed an article he had read in "Upland Today". It was an article by and for the Upland Rotary Club. It was very well written and projected a great image to the City of Upland for their Rotary Club. President Jim observed that this was great P.R. for Rotary and said he would look into placing such an article in "Upland Today" for Upland Host Lions and said he would prepare a draft for the Club's agreement.
The Club has received notices from LCI of 2 individuals showing interest in membership in our Club. After several attempts to contact both potential members no response has been received.

Other Items Worthy of Mention:
CLIS VISION SCREENING AT SULTANA SCIENCE and SPORTS ACADEMY
On September 10th CLIS, with the cooperation of four local Lions Clubs (Ontario/Upland Lions, Ontario Host Lions, Upland Host Lions and Cucamonga District Host Lions) conducted vision screening at the Sultana Science and Sports Academy in Ontario. Cucamonga District Host Lions organized this effort. From 8:00AM to 2:00PM 374 eye exams were provided resulting in fitting 271 pairs of glasses. 98 of these recipients were 1st timers for glasses and 11 were diagnosed with vision diseases they were not aware they had. Many children were among the 374 individuals who were tested. The volunteers for this vision screening were fantastic. We had volunteers from 17 District 4-L4 Clubs.
DIVE WARRIORS - On August 15, 2016 a veterans help group called "Dive Warriors" visited our Club and told us of their mission to help severely wounded veterans overcome the trauma of their wounds in service to our Country. This visit was recorded in the August, 2016 Monthly Bulletin. The Dive Warriors organization is totally funded by donations and help from individuals. Their staff is totally unpaid volunteer. At the Club's September Board Meeting a motion was made that our Club donate to this very worthy group. We had a motion, seconded and approved to donate $200 to the Dive Warriors. This was a very small donation in return for the losses these veterans have suffered for our ongoing safety. The Vice President (volunteer) of Dive Warriors was invited to this meeting and presented with our donation and our expression of appreciation for their work.
