Our Community

In June 2012, The Margate celebrated 60 years in business.   Through four generations of dedication and hard work, we have been fortunate to become one of the largest employers in the region. Over the decades we have strived to demonstrate how much we care about and appreciate our fine community. Here are some of the folks and causes we've recently supported through various donations.
