Other Committee Reports:Eyeglass Mailbox:
Our eyeglass mailbox committee of one (Lion Joey) reported the eyeglass collection box is now back at its home, near City Hall. With Joey's guidance the eyeglass mailbox was beautifully refurbished and now there should be no question as to its purpose and Who the sponsors are. The mail box is now 59 years old (manufactured in 1958) and has been brought back to perfect condition.

|UHL Visiting the Ontario/Upland Lions Club|
UHL Members: Richard, Joe, Arlene, Beverly S. and Joey
There was no activity reported on membership this month.
UHL Club Members have been working diligently to get a new LEO Club started in the Upland area. The first meeting is tentatively scheduled for the last Monday of March from 6:30 to 7:30 PM. Lions Joey and Terri have been doing a great deal of work to get this new Club up and running.
Existing LEO Clubs in District 4-L4 have scheduled a talent show in Stanton on February 25th. UHL Club Members are urged to form carpools and attend to get a feel for LEO Club activities.
Student Speaker Contest:
This years Student Speaker Contest is scheduled at 6:30PM Thursday, February 16th. The Contest will be held in the trailer at Cable Airport (where we held the Contest in past years). Lion Mike is the Chairperson for this Contest.
Brief discussion of our Annual Fund Raiser (Fishbake ???) took place. Lions Ken M., Beverly S., Richard and Jim K. met as a group and toured the facilities at Magnolia Park. Magnolia Park is a very viable site to consider for our relocation.
Relocation of Club Meeting Site:
Effective April 1st the Club meeting location will change. The team mentioned above in the Fishbake discussion also evaluated new locations for the Club meetings. They looked at Magnolia Park and the Upland Landecena Community Center facilities. Either of these facilities would be viable for the move but the Landecena Community Center would charge us $100 for use of the room. Both sites would require a caterer like we have now at Maniac Mikes. Lion Joey suggested that we should look for a restaurant where we would only pay for the food and no room rental. He is familiar with a Mexican restaurant called the El Perito Rancho on Foothill Blvd. that may be a good location. Joey will check with the restaurant and get back to us.
Upland City Council Presentation:
A presentation to the Upland City Council regarding our refurbished Eyeglass Collection Box and our development of an Upland LEO Club was discussed. This presentation will provide community visibility for Upland Host lions and our ongoing activities. The presentation is scheduled for 7:00PM , Monday, March 13th. All Lions are urged to attend this meeting, wearing their yellow vests to provide Club visibility. Lion Terri will organize the presentation.
Requests For Donations:
No requests for donations were received this month.
No motions for donations were made at this meeting.
The Clubs next meeting is scheduled for Monday, February 20, 2017, 6:30PM at Maniac Mikes Café. This will be our monthly general meeting and dinner will be provided.
Having covered all items on the meetings agenda and with no further items brought up for discussion, this Board Meeting was adjourned.
Have An Outstanding Month
