Programs:April 3, 2017 - This meeting was the Club's Monthly Board Meeting. Meeting Minutes were prepared and placed on the Club's blog for everyone to review and comment.
April 17, 2017 - Lion Charlotte was the program chairperson for this meeting. Charlotte had arranged for PDG Ken M. to talk to us. Lion Ken M. spoke to us about District 4-L4 and how it compares with other Districts in in MD-4. Our District is a leader in the MD-4 group of Districts, in most performance categories. We lead everyone in our Diabetes awareness programs and 4-L4 has the most LEOS in all of Lions. We lead MD-4 in support of the Lions Camp at Teresita Pines and the annual Lions Rose Float.
He, further talked about The Lions Camp at Teresita Pines and the Lions Camp At Wrightwood. Ken spoke in depth of the facilities at both of these camps and how it takes support and personal elbow grease of all Lions in MD-4 to maintain and improve these facilities. Teresita Pines covers 3.5 acres, it has 15 sleeping cabins and 4 VIP cabins available plus many other facilities to be used by the campers. Wrightwood Village covers 20+ acres, has 8 sleeping cabins and full facilities for all kinds of camping activities. Wrightwood can accommodate campers with special needs. Both of these camps welcome groups of all types, not just limited to Lions.
Ken also spoke about our local project, the Chaffey Community Center, and described the many improvements taking place there. Regional Indian Groups are working with the Center to add a typical Indian Village as part of the many historical settings being developed at the site. Our Club has committed to assist the Community Center in continuing this development.

Tonight Lion Joey presented Certificates of Appreciation to the two Companies who refurbished our eyeglass collection box. These Companies were "Concept Powder Coating" and "Signs Unlimited". These Companies revitalized our old mailbox to a much better condition than it ever has been. The Powder Coating will last many, many years and the graphics, prepared and installed by Signs Unlimited, leave no doubt as to the purpose of the box. We thank them for their gracious contribution of this work for us.
Tonight we had 4 visitors ( in addition to those who received Certificates). Once again we welcomed Lion Sandy Watts mother to our meeting. She is always welcome. We, also, had visitors from the Cucamonga District Host Club with us. Lions Steve Lacey and Barbara and Scotty Barklay visited us to promote their Club's coming fashion show.
