President's Update

Georgina Balascas

Hello to summer!

June is finally here and the official date of summer is around the corner!

I love the feel of sunshine and warmth and the anticipation of what summer adventures await everyone.

The MWHA has had a very busy month of May. We held our second monthly “Circle of Friends” Breakfast on May 24th at the Markland Wood Golf Club. Thank you to those of you who came. This is a great opportunity for myself and some of the Directors to meet members of the community and their families. I certainly enjoy meeting and chatting with you in a friendly and comfortable setting. We are holding our last “Circle of Friends” Breakfast for this season on Sunday, June 21st between 10:30 a.m. and noon at the Markland Wood Golf Club. This will give you the opportunity to celebrate Father’s Day, so bring Dad and treat him to breakfast! We will resume the breakfast in September.

On Saturday, May 30th, our Annual Community Garage Sale took place! As I walked through the community that morning I certainly noticed that there was a lot of activity and traffic! By all accounts, this was another successful event for Markland Wood! Thank you to all of you who participated.

Christmas Caravan 2014

on Sunday, 14 December 2014.

Christmas Caravan 2014

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.
