Milliken Mills Lions Club

About MMLC

Milliken Mills Lions Club(MMLC) came into existence on January 2nd, 1998. The club was chartered by a few members living in Markham having their meetings in the basement of the chartered members. The motto behind starting Milliken Mills Lions Club was serving the community in the Milliken Mills Area and making a difference with the Indian Community.  Milliken Mills Lions Club’s member have always shown their enthusiasm and initiative by raising funds to help the community and serving the  LCIF projects . “WE SERVE” is the motto, for that MMLC Lions work tirelessly with passion to help make a difference in the community.

Milliken Mills _ Fun Activities
The Club Quality Initiative is a fun interactive process that brings members together to look at what your club is today and what it will be tomorrow. It gives us the tools to strengthen our service, improve club effectiveness and enhance our membership experience. Hence our club came with an idea to have our second meeting of the month to be named as the ”MMLC Fun Meeting” where all members were encouraged to bring their spouses as well to participate. This change brought a huge success to the club with 95% attendance and more participation by the club members. This change brought more strength to the club with more members participation and the spouses taking interest to join in as members as well.

This is the Fourth year since the Fun Parties were started, The first one was four years ago at Lion Sudha Verma’s residence (President 2013) who was the first one to start. Since then the trend has carried on and we continue to have fun at our second meeting of the month on volunteer basis at one of the Lions’ residence.
