 Markham Grand Opening Ceremonies - June 12th, 2004


                                 
Opening attended by Mayor Scarpitti, Councilors Jack Heath and George McKelvey, President Dave Harris, Dave Tromphor and Colin Campbell.

Congratulations to all members and friends of MRFC for a great show on Saturday June 12th, 2004 to celebrate the official opening of our new clubhouse.

What a party to crown off the day with most of our teams winning put the icing on the cake. I received nothing but praise about the clubhouse from the local councilor's and visitors.  Four years of fund raising and negotiations followed by three years of construction almost entirely by volunteers.

 

We've done ourselves very proud, keep it up. Thanks to Kim Jorgenson for planning the day and to everyone else who pitched in to make it happen.
