It is my great pleasure to welcome each and every one of you for joining us in celebrating Milliken Mills Lions Club’s 19 years of service in our community. “WE SERVE” is our motto, for that Lions work tirelessly with passion to help make a difference in the community. This year, we Milliken Mills Lions Club is hosting Gala Dinner to help raise funds for two life changing organizations; the Heart and Stroke Foundation as well as the Canadian Diabetes Association. The Heart and Stroke Foundation strive to promote a healthy lifestyle without the risk of heart disease and stroke.
Their focus remains on preventing disease, saving lives, and enhancing support for recovery. Equivalently, the Canadian Diabetes Association leads the fight against diabetes with the purpose of helping those affected, preventing the consequences, and discovering a cure for the disease. They work today to seek a future rid of the effects of diabetes.
I would like to thank our sponsors, donors, advertisers and media for their excellent support and contribution. Special thanks to our Platinum Sponsors: Mr. Ray & Mr. Wally Gupta from Sunray Group of Companies, Sunny Hajatri from Sweet Wedding Cards, Mercedes Benz Markham & Mr. Prince Sibal of East Court Ford Lincoln, Mitesh and Chetna Patel from Vimi Spa and RBC Wealth Management. It is with your generous donations we are able to host this Gala and raise funds to help our community.
Lastly, a heartfelt Thank You, to all the members of Milliken Mills Lions Club for giving me the opportunity to serve as your President again this year. My goal was to involve all of our members to take part in club activities and community service projects, all while having fun.
I am pleased to announce that this year our club has given donations to: Vision of Hope, Guiding Dogs, and Autism Society of Canada. We have participated in planting 10,000 trees, donating clothes and food to homeless shelters, donating used eyeglasses, and donating funds to Camp Kirk. We have also adopted a Milliken Mills Park for Park Cleaning Program. I’m so proud of my fellow Lions for their continued effort and support to make Milliken Mills the Club it is today. Find your inner “LION” and help your local community be the “BEST” it can be!
