Volunteering at the Milton Strawberry Fair

I had a great time on June 21st volunteering for the Milton Strawberry Fair.  It’s a community fundraiser that brings people together from all across Milton for some family fun in support of Milton District Hospital Foundation.

Recognition goes to Milton District Hospital Auxiliary which organizes the event each year.   2014 is the 34th year this event has been running, I’ve enjoyed volunteering for the past 5 –  from helping direct traffic in the parking area to collecting hospital donations at the entry gate.

Also attaching a picture of Ryan and Kevin playing the kids zone area at the fair.   After my volunteer shift is over we have some family fun at the sand mountain, bouncy castles and also enjoying the tasty strawberry desserts

We handed over the funds to Milton District Hospital Foundation this week from our Milton Haunted House Fundraiser.   Thanks to all the volunteers and sponsors who made this possible.   We reached and then surpassed our $5000 goal.

Thanks to Zeeshan Hamid and Jennifer Smith for co-organizing the event with me.   Special thanks to the volunteers from throughout Milton who came to donate their time as scary characters inside the Haunted House.   If you missed this years event just wait until next year for the same thing but bigger and better.

After the ceremony we had an opportunity to meet with Helen Vatistas (Executive Director) and Brian Penman (Vice Chair) of MDHF to talk about upcoming challenges the hospital foundation is facing.  There are improvements that need to be made at the hospital and they will require the support of the Town,  MDHF and the province actively working together to achieve them.
