This was my third year participating in the Terry Fox Public School Fun Fair.   On behalf of Terry Fox Public School Parent Council, I would like to share with you the incredible success of their fun fairs. Despite the rain and low temperatures this group of very dedicated parents pulled off yet another successful, well run spring fair for all to enjoy raising $4900.

I believe community involvement is so important, I have made it my mission. As your Ward 6 Community Councillor, I feel it is my duty, and also my privilege, to serve our community. Being involved with our community is all about building relationships with the community, with business leaders, with area businesses, and most importantly, with the residents in our neighbourhoods.  I encourage annual events with community goals to better our community.

Please contact me if your school or neighbourhood has a fund-raising idea or initiative within the community that can help improve the lives of the children, youth, families  and our environment in Newmarket.

Here is a little history about Terry Fox Public School Fun Fairs...

In February 2014, Jessica, a parent council member, asked for my help putting together their first ever Terry Fox School Fun Fair.  Their goal was to raise funds to purchase new outdoor sports equipment and materials for their new Full Day Kindergarten program.  As a member of the Clearmeadow PS Parent Council, I was more then happy to help a neighbouring school.

The community really came together to support this cause, with over 700 in attendance. The group consisted of 75 volunteers, numerous parents, students, local businesses, teachers, community leaders and an incredible Fun Fair committee.  All working together for a good cause.  The fair raised over $6900.00!   The Terry Fox School Fun Fair would like to be an annual event and needs our support to achieve that goal.
