MLL Koivukylä will join the MLL Korso association in 2016. The name of the new, bigger association will be the MLL Korso-Koivukylä association. The Koivukylä area is quite big with approximately 25.000 people. The Koivukylä area includes: Koivukylä, Ilola, Asola, Rekola, Havukoski ja Päiväkumpu.
Of course we are hoping to become Finland’s biggest MLL association! But that means that we have to start to organize more events, family cafés and other activities. We will be needing more volunteers to help us organize new acitivities. The volunteer can choose how active he/she wants to be: you can choose to be active once or twice a week or once a month.
As a volunteer, you do this in your own free time and you are committed in your role. You can create new activities and make your dreams come true! We are truly open to new ideas!
The Local association is run by volunteers. As a volunteer, you can participate in board meetings and have a say in your own area’s activity. Would you like to have more music clubs for families? Outdoor events? Flea Market? Trips, for example to the Zoo? Would you like to open an international family cafe? Everything is possible!
You can also support your local association by being a member. Please, join us here right away! It will cost only 25,00€ per year, which makes little more than 2€ per month.
Most of our activities are organized in Finnish, but you are welcome to participate even if you don´t speak Finnish.
