Do More Of What Makes You Happy - Volunteer

 

 

 



The Markham Lions for many years have raised funds for Markham through several events. These funds are then given to citizens or organizations in Markham to support their activities. This is a list of the major fund raising events sponsored by the Markham Lions:

 

•  Markham Fair Food Booth

Every Lion in the organization, their spouses ,children and sometimes grandchildren are involved in this major event. Occurring in the weekend before Thanksgiving weekend, this activity entails feeding the 40,000 + visitors to the Markham Fair over a four day period. The menu consists of hamburgers, Lionburgers,cheeseburgers, hot dogs, and soft drinks. This is a hectic activity that is very organized and well managed after over 60 years of operation.

•  Fireworks Sales

Every Victoria Day weekend and Canada Day weekend, the Markham Lions sell a wide assortment of fireworks at the Markham Village Community Centre parking lot.

•  Annual Flower Sales

Beginning in early April, the Markham Lions members begin their house to house sale of 11 different bedding plants such as petunias and impatience as well as 6 different hanging flower baskets. These plants are then delivered in late May for planting. The reception by the public has been exceptional and is one of the major means of gaining exposure to the Markham citizens for the work that we do in the community.

•  Pancake Breakfast at Wittamore Farm's Strawberry Festival

Every spring when strawberries begin to ripen, Jim Wittamore puts on a weekend Strawberry Festival at his Steeles Ave. farm where "pick your own" is the rule of the day. To attract the thousands of pickers, he puts on a festival complete with rides and games for the kids. In addition, he wants the people to enjoy the delight of eating strawberries so he invites the Markham Lions to cook and sell pancakes smoothered in strawberries with maple syrup on the side as a breakfast/lunch treat.
