Other items Worthy Of Mention:
Our Club continues exploring Chartering a LEOs Club. Lion Joey, our resident ex-Leo has accepted the leadership role in this effort. Lion Joey presented his plan book, to develop a LEO Club, to the Club. Lion Joey has been having discussions regarding the possible donation of a Van, to the Club for the LEO member use and transportation. The donation of the van would include the costs involved.

Lions Joey and Ken M. have arranged a meeting Thursday, January 26th with representative of Garden Arbor School to discuss a LEOs Club for Jr. High and High School Students.

Lion Joey gave the Club an update on the status of our City Hall Eyeglass Collection box. He showed the Club a picture of the renovated box and stated that it should be reinstalled this week. Joey had a lock made for the box so now no one other than our Club should be able to get into it. Joey suggested that a certificate of appreciation be prepared for the Company that refurbished the mail box. As soon as the Company's name is provided a certificate will be prepared.


The Student Speaker Contest is once again upon us. Lion Mike has  volunteered to chair this activity and will update us at the next meeting. The deadline for this contest is February 20th.

The Club's Annual Fund Raiser (Fish Bake) was discussed and President Jim K. stated that Memorial Park is still being renovated. He talked about the possibility of changing location to Magnolia Park. A committee was formed to examine ways in which we can make this fund raiser a more family friendly affair. The Committee Members are President Jim, Madeleine, Beverly S., Richard and Ken M.

Three members of our Club (Lions Jim K., Keith and Ken M.)   attended the 4-L4 District Cabinet meeting on Saturday, January 28th.


There were no visitations during January. The Club plans a visitation to the Ontario/Upland Lions on Thursday, February 9th at 6:30PM at The Ontario Elks Lodge. Future Visitations are planned at the Cucamonga District Host Club on March 22nd and Ontario Host Lions on April 23rd.
