A brief presentation regarding our plans for an Upland area LEO Club will be made by Lion Joey.

Planning for the Club's annual fundraiser (Fishbake/Steak fry) continues. The fundraiser Committee made up of Lions Richard, Beverly S., Arlene, Ken M., Madeleine and Jim K. met on Monday, March 13th to discuss moving forward and developing a successful Fund Raiser. More meetings are planned soon.

Some discussion regarding the new LEO Club costs was opened but our LEO Liaison (Lion Joey) was unable to attend this meeting so this item was tabled until a future date. Lion Joey and President Jim were able to get together and decide on some of the items Joey should order to meet his first meeting date. Club items and Member supplies were given the go ahead and were ordered to meet the projected date.

Our Club has, again, stepped up and provided eye exams and new glasses for Upland school children.
We provided eye exams and glasses for 10 school children, at a cost of $500.00

Lion Jim K. and PDG Ken M. have successfully submitted the Secretary Of State Statement of Information for our Club. This statement is required every two years and it was filed and accepted on February 23, 2017. They have also completed the California Annual Exempt Organization Return for 2015/2016 with a filing fee of $25.00 for each year.

New Business:
An addition to the Club's "Standing Rules" was presented for the Club's consideration. This change was presented to better clarify Club Executive Officer responsibilities. The change (addition) was moved, seconded and approved, with two dissensions. The modified rule is as follows:

2.  Club Executive Officers (President, Vice President, Treasurer and Secretary): Club Executive Officers must be available for all meetings. If a Club Executive Officer is unable to make a meeting he/she must arrange for another Club member to fill the position for that meeting. If the Club Executive Officer misses more than 4 consecutive meetings due to personal schedule conflicts, or fails to arrange for a temporary replacement, his/her resignation from his/her Officer position will be requested. If the Officer is absent for an extended period due to illness or family situations the Executive Board will name a temporary replacement.

With the help of Lion Michael our Club volunteered to man the pancake breakfast facility at the first annual HOPS WITH POPS 5K RUN on Saturday, June 17th. This will be a fund raiser for our Club in that we will receive a portion of the pancake breakfast income for our Club.

A donation of $500.00 was made for eye exams for Upland school children this month.
