T’is the season of Summer Social Committee Fun! With sunny warm days just around the corner, our Social Committee has the calendar of events lined up for the next couple of months. Our main and most favored events among staff include our annual Baseball tournament and family picnic, as well as our annual Blue Jay’s game. During the month of July, we take all interested staff down to the Rogers Centre on a Sunday afternoon to root, root, root for our home team and perhaps indulge in some peanuts and crackerjacks.
The month of August is yet another baseball inspired event. Each store creates their own baseball team and all three stores compete against each other for the big shiny trophy and more importantly, bragging rights. The staff at Vince’s Market don’t take this tournament too lightly if they are not the winning team but it is all in good fun! Alongside the baseball tournament, we have a family picnic for all players and non-players alike.
On top of organizing social events, the summer months are strong for fundraising opportunities. We usually have BBQ’s at each location in hopes of raising money to help with the funding of our events. This summer we are taking a different approach and setting up ice cream stands at each location on the following days:
- Sharon- Saturday June 22nd, 2013
- Newmarket- Saturday July 20th, 2013
- Uxbridge- Saturday July 6th, 2013
Please come by any of the locations for a scoop of ice cream and your favorite topping and support our Social Committee.
On the community support front, we are continuously making contributions the communities we serve. Throughout the summer, we typically donate to a variety of different charity golf tournaments, the Big Bike for Heart and Stroke, MS Walk and we sponsor numerous soccer leagues within each community that we are located. For all donation inquiries, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to have all requests reviewed and considered.
From our family to yours, we wish everyone a safe, happy and fun Summer months to come!
