12th Annual Banquet and Auction
Well all is said and done after another wonderfully successful evening at Sleepy Hollow Country Club but the evening was one to remember according to many beaming attendees. The night was seasoned with Tanzanian dishes, lovely music by Derek Christi and Laurelle Augustyn and an inspiring speech to say the least by MP of Markham Stouffville’s Jane Philpott. The event raised approximately $23,000 which will greatly aid the continuation and hopefully expansion of our health care and education programs in Igoma. Our members want to extend our deepest gratitude to the participants above as well as to our Emcee Clyde Smith, Shooting Stars, the Silent Auction Company, Edith Lewis, our volunteers and all who donated to our silent auction and basket raffle! We also want to give thanks and recognize our 2016 Corporate Partners who are as follows;
Century Mill Lumber Farmer Jack’s Fieldgate Homes
Simpson Produce AVECO Pools O’Neill Funeral Home
the King’s Landing The Hearty Artichoke Stouffville Fine Furniture
There will be a meeting Thursday, June 2nd at 7pm in the Town Office (111 Sandiford Dr) for anyone interested in joining a work team travelling to Igoma for 2 weeks in August. Bring your questions and concerns. Should you not be able to attend the meeting but still wish to go, please call our new SIP phone number 647-444-3513.

Dear Friends of the Stouffville Igoma Partnership,
April 8th, 2016
This is a notice to invite you to join us for our Annual General Meeting of Stouffville Igoma Partnership (SIP). The meeting will be held on Thursday, April 28, 2016 at 7pm at the Town of Whitchurch-Stouffville offices (111 Sandiford Drive, Stouffville). The meeting will be held in the Council Chambers.
The agenda will include a presentation of SIP’s on-going projects in Igoma, projections for 2016 and the upcoming year, some I-CARE sponsorship updates, highlight’s of last year’s trip to Igoma, and details on exciting volunteer opportunities, including another trip to Igoma this year.
Many of the things we take for granted here in Canada, like education and medical care aren’t the experience of the rest of the world. We have the opportunity to help support those whose basic needs aren’t always met. Fulfilling much needed big or small volunteer roles is a meaningful way to contribute to this unique community endeavour and to care for Stouffville’s very own partnered community. It is especially a great opportunity for students to develop their portfolios and global perspective. If you wish to learn more about what SIP has succeeded to do in Tanzania, help organize and plan future events/projects, and perhaps go to Africa yourself, come out and spend the evening with us!
SIP Board of Directors
Looking for some Christmas cheer? Come by the Lion of Stouffville to hear popular local musicians sing their favourite Christmas songs. Donations will be taken at the door to further SIP projects in Tanzania and help our partnered community, Igoma.
Where – The Lion of Stouffville 5917 Main Street
When – Thursday, December 10th 7:30-9:30pm
Who – Many local musicians are participating and donating their talents such as: LoveIsFree, Brian O’Sullivan, Jenna Gallagher, Ro, Justin Kerswill, Mike Burns, Sheryl Clinton, Emily Redshaw, Jonathan Ison and more! It may just turn into a good ol’ fashioned jam and carol sing!
Your donation at the door will be aiding Stouffville’s partnered community in East Africa purchase things like mosquito nets to protect families against Malaria, buy new medical equipment for a surgical theatre and sponsor young adults with school tuition. Come celebrate what Stouffville is doing half way across the world. And while you enjoy some local talent sings a Christmas classic, you can be sure that your time and money has been well spent this Christmas season. And don’t forget, the Stouffville Igoma Partnership is run by volunteers here in Stouffville and that means that 95 cents of every dollar goes directly to the people and programs in Igoma. Thank you Stouffville for participating in joining hands and creating hope.
