Women’s Committee of Markham Spring Fling 2015 – Thank You!

WC FlowersThe Women’s Committee of Markham has done it again! Their annual Gardening on the Green Luncheon was held on May 13, 2015 and was a smashing success. Attendees enjoyed a Lunch and Learn afternoon with Sean James at Sleepy Hollow Country Club; it was entertaining and great fun for everyone.

All proceeds generously donated to Markhaven will be used to improve the garden areas of our Home.

The Women’s Committee has kindly raised and donated funds to Markhaven for many years, through their Spring Flings (Gardening on the Green events) and Fall Flings (Fashion Show Luncheons). We thank the Women’s Committee for their continued support and we recognize how lucky we are to be the recipients of their generosity. Most importantly, we appreciate the difference they make to the daily lives of our residents.

Markhaven would also like to thank the sponsors, donors, and volunteers who assist the Women’s Committee with their events. The community spirit and generosity shown by these groups is not only heartwarming but through the Women’s Committee, directly enhances the quality of life of our residents.

Thank you Women’s Committee of Markham!
