Millet knows the importance of celebrating those who dedicate their time and passions to enrich the community.

The Town of Millet will be consecrating two newly minted celebration days this year, as mayor Tony Wadsworth during town council’s March 8 meeting proclaimed May 6, 2017, as Lions Clubs International Centennial Celebration Day and June 15, 2017, as Al Kilborn Day.

This year marks the 100th anniversary since the founding of the Lions Clubs International and its humanitarian services.

The Lions Clubs International is the world’s largest service club organization with 1.4 million members in 46,000 clubs, located in more the 200 countries,

This year is also the 44th year of the Lions Club of Millet and District in the community.

“We wanted to do a proclamation,” said Lions Club of Millet and District president Jane Poohkay.

The Town of Millet has proclaimed June 15 as Al Kilborn Day in honour of the retired Millet Fire Department chief.

The proclamation document listed in the council meeting agenda states, “For 45 years Mr. Kilborn has been rolling up his sleeves to give his own time, energy, and talents to do what needs to be done for the betterment of the community and make the town and surrounding areas safe.”

“Mr. Kilborn, accompanied by the other dedicated volunteers strived to build the Millet and oversee its evolution into the success it is today,” the proclamation continued.
