Upland Host Lions Monthly Bulletin - May, 2017

May 1, 2017 - Our 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.

May 15, 2017 - We had no prescheduled program for todays meeting so we talked about future Club activities. Lion Joey is continuing with his recruitment for our new LEO Club. He has their next meeting scheduled for Monday, May 22nd at 6:30 PM. He continues his visitation to local schools, inviting the young people to attend the meetings to learn about the LEO's and their community service. Our first formation meeting resulted in a disappointing single person appearing and want to be a member. Not to be deterred by the first meeting,  Lion Joey has been very active in creating an awareness of the LEOs and spread interest to other young people in the area.

We, further, discussed this years "Fishbake" now to be known as "Lions Family Feed and Fun". As everyone knows we do not have Memorial Park available to us this year and after searching for a replacement venue we arranged to have the "Lions Family Feed and Fun" at the Gibson Center in Upland. Instead of our traditional Fish and Steak the meal will be catered by the Habit Restaurant and they will serve cheeseburgers, chicken sandwiches and tuna steak sandwiches with fries and a soda. We will have entertainment plus activities for children. The date of this affair has, also, been changed. For the first time in this fund raisers history it will now be held on Saturday instead of Friday. The date of the Fund raiser is Saturday, August 5, 2017.
