This past Saturday afternoon, the Markham-Unionville Rotary Choir was out once again, this time at Bethany Lodge. The residents responded a 1000 fold to the Choir's hard work, great hearts, Rotary spirit and musical gift to bring good cheer.
The annual Santa Claus Parade took place this year on Saturday November 24, 2012 on Main Street Markham. There was bright sunshine and a fresh cool breeze to accompany, but kids and adults alike lined up along both sides all the way from Highway 7 to north of 16th Avenue, patiently waiting for the main with a white beard, and a twinkle in his, dressed in red, yes SANTA!

On behalf of our Honourary Chair, Mayor Frank Scarpitti, Gala Co-Chairs Nirmala Armstrong and Alan Ho, we want to thank our entire club membership and the Rotarians and Friends of Rotary that made our 50th Anniversary Gala Celebration a success. We are happy to report that over 400 people were able to join us on Saturday March 31st at Crystal Fountain Banquet Hall in Markham for a wonderful evening of dining, prize wining draws and raffles, music and dancing. "Where Were You in '62?" exceeded our fundraising and community service goals and expectations. Proceeds will be contributed to the club's Buy-a-Bed program for Markham-Stouffville Hospital and to Rotary International's PolioPlus campaign.
