Markham-Unionville MP Bob Saroya hosted the first of his community barbeques at Ashton Meadows Park as part of his community outreach initiative.
The weather cooperated – maybe a little too much, as hundreds showed up for a free burger and drink courtesy of Saroya. While the burgers ran low quick on a perfect, sunny day, the event gave residents an opportunity to meet with their federal representative in an informal, unhurried atmosphere. Some of the BBQ attendees happened to be at the park watching their kids play in the local soccer tournament and decided to take a few minutes and grab a free burger and learn about their MP.
Saroya promises an even bigger and better event, with more food, August 19, at Wismer Park near Bur Oak East of Kennedy.
