Veterans and students filled the gymnasium at St. Patrick’s Catholic Elementary School on February 12 for the 2016 Flag Day celebrations. Mayor Scarpitti, Markham-Stouffville MP Jane Philpott and Oakridges-Markham MPP Helena Jaczek were in attendance.
St. Patrick’s church members sponsored the Kaback family, Syrian refugees, who have recently started a new chapter of their lives living in Canada. The Kaback’s received a warm welcome from all in attendance. The family is overwhelmed with the generosity received and has expressed their heartfelt thanks to the St. Patrick’s community.
