Celebrating 12 years of business, the Weyburn Re/Max office held a lunch today in support of Envision Counselling & Support Centre and the Family Place.
"We had a BBQ here every year just for customer appreciation, and COVID put a clamp on that, so we're ready to go again," shared Broker / Owner Winston Bailey. "So it's it'll be 12 years tomorrow that my wife and I purchased the Re/Max practice, so we just thought what a great time to get people out in the spring."
The event was held indoors due to inclement weather.
"We never wanted the rain to come because we thought more people would show up, but we do appreciate the rain. We needed it."
Bailey said this type of gathering is, "just a way of reaching out to public and saying that thank you for the community support in our business and a way of us to help give back again to various organizations in the city that are very important. We're all partners."
The Weyburn Outreach Coordinator with Envision, Raven Daer said the demand for their services has seen an increase over the past few years.
"We're not sure if maybe it's in relation to COVID or just folks recognizing that the supports are available, but our numbers are growing, the demand is growing. So we are always just looking for ways to support the need."
Assistant Director with the Family Place, Judy Lumb, said, "It's great that they're having something like this, and Re/Max has always been really great to the Family Place. We appreciate everything they do."
Re/Max served beef on a bun and cupcakes, provided by Western Prime Meats, and they took donations for the two worthy causes.
