Whistle Stop Christmas Fair 2012!
This year, the 2012 Whistle Stop Christmas Fair raised $1,100 for the Arthritis Society. Many volunteer hours and teamwork went into this event, which has been held at the Markham GO Station in December over the past four years.
Our thanks go out to everyone who helped to make this fair, which features art, crafts and unique food, the best ever.
Thank you to The Garden Basket in Markham, which sponsored the cafe, and to Nicole Chapman of The Arthritis Society who spoke to visitors throughout the day, giving information about arthritis and the society’s work.
A special thank you to our talented and enthusiastic vendors and to our elves—students from St. Elizabeth Catholic High School in Thornhill. Other volunteers included Patrick Kennedy and Bradley Keen, who manned the barbecue and Brandon Wild and Bob Vopni who provided the music. Thank you also to Councillor Carolina Moretti and her executive assistant Gillian Shaw.
We couldn’t have done it without you!
We look forward to another successful event in December 2013!
