JOIN THE MLCC

The MLCC is primarily funded through annual memberships as well as fundraising events such as Luminaria. Funds are directly reinvested in the community and have been used for Mt Lookout Square’s landscaping and maintenance, neighborhood events such as our annual Fall Festival, support for the Ault Park fireworks, and managing other community-building programs.

This year, we’re celebrating Mt. Lookout’s 151st Anniversary! To help commemorate this milestone, we have set a goal to reach 151 new or renewing members of the Mt. Lookout Community Council. If you haven’t joined or renewed your annual membership yet, please help us reach this goal by purchasing an annual MLCC membership for $20. Thank you for your support!
