The Grand Parade in Alliston Hits Fundraising Target
VIDEO: It was a pleasure to take part in the Grand Parade in Alliston. I was joined by MPP for Scarborough North & Minister for Seniors and Accessibility Raymond Cho, Simcoe-Grey MP Terry Dowdall, Township of Essa Mayor Sandie MacDonald, members of New Tecumseth Council and generous citizens who helped make the event so successful. In fact, the Alliston event boasted the most registered teams in Canada and hit 100 percent of its fund raising goal, $20,000, at the inaugural event!
Congratulations to Emily McIntosh, Executive Director at CONTACT Community Services and to the many volunteers who worked so hard to put this event together.
