Markland Wood | Community Established in 1960

President's Update

Georgina Balascas

Hello everyone!

I cannot believe that this is already the month of September and another summer has come and gone! I hope that you and your families enjoyed the summer and you spent quality time together. School has started for the children so please drive carefully. Remember that the stretch along Bloor Street in front of St. Clement School is a 40 km zone during parts of the day. Please be aware of the flashing sign that indicates when this speed limit is enforced.

During the summer season (July and August), the MWHA does not meet as a Board and no newsletter is published. However, there are always issues which occur which require monitoring or action. The Board and I are actively involved in these issues even in the summer and we are in constant communication with each other. We are now ready to start the new season. We will again start to meet once a month and publish the Marklander each month as well.

Markland Wood Christmas Caravan 2015 will be held on Sunday December 13th, 2015.

Caravan 2014 was again a huge success and the residents of Markland should be very proud for being able to help so many. The day was beautiful and the donations plentiful.

Close to 18,000 lbs. of food, a truckload of clothes and almost $1,000.00 in cash. One of our biggest yet!

Our recipients were the Brothers of the Good Shepherd, The Scott Mission and the Daily Bread Food Bank. The clothing was donated to Goodwill of Toronto. Monies were distributed to The Toronto Star Santa Fund and house wares donated to the Furniture Bank.
