Markham Mayor’s Message – 2013
On behalf of Members of Council and the City of Markham, I am pleased to extend a warm and sincere welcome to all those attending the 169th Annual Markham Fair, Ontario’s oldest autumn fair.
This annual four day event is an integral part of our community. From its early days as an agricultural society where farmers gathered to discuss agricultural improvements and showcase the fruits of their labour to the present day Fair, guests have an opportunity to experience old fashioned fun and modern day activities, from a horse pull to a demolition derby, from displays of baking and crafts to the midway, from sheep shearing to live entertainment, there is something for everyone.
I extend a sincere thank you to the organizing committee and the many volunteers who give so freely of their time and expertise to make the Markham Fair such a success year after year. A special thank you also goes to the hundreds of participants who exhibit their livestock, produce, baking and crafts, reminding us all of the importance of our heritage. You are to be congratulated on a job well done.
As Mayor, I am proud of your efforts and I am pleased to have this opportunity to extend my best wishes for fun filled day at the fair!
