Our club has lost its meeting location due to a surprise charge of $50.00 per meeting to use the small room in a local restaurant that we were outgrowing anyway. We feel that spending $100.00 per month is a poor use of our resources, so are relocating.

We are trying out several locations and will report back to the district when we settle on one.

Our club has questioned if other Lions clubs in this district have to pay restaurants such fees to meet? What fees, if any does your club pay? Our club members always order food and drink when we meet. We feel this is adequate compensation to the business owner. We meet on notoriously slow business nights, and feel this supports local business.

Any advise on this issue, please contact me.
