The Mayor’s Community Fund mission is to be a not-for-profit organization that is created to improve the wider community of the area of Whitchurch-Stouffville and York Region; to encourage the goodwill and involvement of the greater community; and to foster positive community spirit and encourage civic pride.

The Mayor’s Community Fund presented $36,000 to 36 local community groups in honour of their contribution to our community.

The community celebration was held at the Royal Canadian Legion where the cheques were handed out last month.

Many members of the community, associations and clubs joined the celebration.
