Markham Mayor’s Message – 2017
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 Annual Markham Fair 2017 held at the Markham Fairgrounds.
This annual four day event is an exciting and an integral part of our community experience. Not only does it bring together members of our community, but it also attracts visitors from all over the GTA to our great city. The fair has evolved from its early days as an agricultural oriented fair, where farmers gathered to discuss agricultural improvements and showcase the fruits of their labour to the present, where members of our community have an opportunity to experience old fashion fun and modern day activities.
I extend a sincere thank you to the organizing committee and the many volunteers who have dedicated their time and effort in making this event a success. A special thank you also goes to the hundreds of participants who exhibit their livestock, produce, baking and crafts, reminding us of the importance of our culture and heritage. Congratulations 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 another great year at the fair!
