Other Committee Reports:
Our one man eyeglass/mailbox committee, composed of Joey, has completed refurbishment of the eyeglass/mail box. The box was removed from its permanent location by Joey, taken to the powder coater, sandblasted, acid cleaned and then powder coated. Lion Joey then had Lion Logos and eyeglass collection box identification decals prepared. He will install the decals and re-install the box in its original location. Thanks to Joey the powder coating was done gratis and the decals cost the club only $80.00.
There was a discussion of the Club's budgets, with an indication that both the Activities and Administrative budgets had been reviewed and approved at the Club's 12/19/2016 meeting. Further discussion of the Administrative budget followed and it was agreed that more clarity was needed on both budgets and they will be discussed at a future meeting.
As we have every year, at this time, discussions of the 2017 Fish/Steak Fry began. Club President Jim K. has been investigating locations for the 2017 affair. He stated that Memorial Park is currently closed to the public and will be for 6 months or more. The City of Upland is in the process of upgrading the park.
President Jim also investigate the possibilities of using Magnolia Park. He talked to City representatives and has tentatively reserved the Magnolia Park for the Club. He checked the gas availability, cooking facilities and seating / table availability. Everything needed for our Fish/Steak Fry seemed to be available at that site. Although there is a gas supply he needs further investigation regarding our ability to attach the corn cookers to that supply.
We had further discussion about new community signs, food alternatives, entertainment and perhaps reorganization of the Club's entire fund raising effort. We talked about getting away from the Fish/Steak Fry venue and using food vendors such as In N Out Burgers and other means to attract adults and their children to revitalize our efforts.
No other new business was discussed.

The Club's next meeting is scheduled for Monday, January 23, 2017, 6:30 PM at Maniac Mikes Café. This will be our Monthly General Meeting and dinner will be provided.
No further items were brought up for discussion and President Jim K. adjourned the meeting
Have A Great Month
