Recently the Washington Lightkeepers Association hosted a Lighthouse Keepers Reunion that was attended by approximately seventy former lighthouse keepers, lightship crewmen and descendants of lighthouse keepers. The event included a buffet lunch, commutative booklet and patch.

Mills is also one of the founding members of the Nova Scotia Lighthouse Preservation Society; he currently works for the Canadian Coast Guard and also hosts his own radio show.
