Old Business:
The Upland Host Lions annual Holiday Party was held on Monday, December 5th at Maniac Mike's Café.

On December 10th The City of Upland held their annual Christmas Parade. Upland Host Lions helped with parade organization and crowd control. This year there were 104 entries in the parade and a lot of coordination was required. The Lions of District 4-L4 were represented by our District Governor Lion Bob Susaeta riding in the parade.

During our October and November, 2016, Board Meetings we had discussed refurbishing the Club's eye glass collection box (old mailbox). The Ontario Lions Club Had offered to refurbish the box if they could share the eye glasses collected in it. Our Club declined the offer and Lion Joey stated that he does business with a powder coating company and he would see what they would charge us to refinish it. He checked and the company said they would sand blast and refinish the box for the Club at no charge. Joey further checked on placing the identifying Lions Logo and necessary eye glass collection identifiers on the box  Lion Joey volunteered to deliver the mail box to the powder coaters, place the proper decals on the box and reinstall it for the Club. The total cost for the decals would be $70 to $80. A motion was made, seconded and approved to have Lion Joey go ahead and take care of the Eye Glass collection box. THANK YOU JOEY.

We had discussion of the future of our annual Fish Bake which included relocation, facility needs, changes to menu and physical assistance requirements. To perpetuate this annual activity we must consider possible major changes to assure its continuation. More discussion to come.

New Business:
New for this meeting, but not new to Club discussions  was a presentation put together by Lion Joey regarding the development of a new LEOs Club in Upland. Lion Joey ( a former LEO) had put together a plan for forming a new Club. He addressed a proposed location, the costs as they pertained to LCI, ongoing fees, facilities and costs to individuals or the Upland Host Lions Club to equip and maintain individual members. There is an initial startup or charter fee to LCI of $100 and an ongoing annual LCI fee of $100. In addition there are a number of individual costs to be considered for the LEOs Club. Lion Joey did a good job of identifying the requirements of starting and maintaining a new Club. Further discussion and action will be undertaken.
