April showers bring May flowers so they say!

However they neglected to tell us whether they mean rain showers or snow showers as we saw on Easter Sunday. What a surprise!

I am sure that those rain showers will be coming soon and we will have many beautiful flowers blooming in May and beyond! I am really looking forward to seeing green grass and colourful gardens as I walk my dog around the community!

On Sunday April 26th at 10:30 a.m., we will be holding our first monthly “Circle of Friends” Breakfast at the Markland Wood Golf Club. Please join us and have breakfast with some of the Directors. This will be a great opportunity for you to meet other members of our community. If you would like to attend, please contact Anna Schaefer by email at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. . She will gladly make a reservation for you! See you there!

 At the end of March, several members of the MWHA met again with Councillor Stephen Holyday... 

... to express our concerns in detail about the proposed condo development at 240 Markland Drive. In last month’s Marklander we published an article about this development. We have reprinted it in case you missed it (please see the news module below). It is very important that you understand the magnitude of this new submission. If you have any questions or concerns please talk to any one of the Board Officers or Directors. The MWHA will continue to work with the Councillor and the City planner so that we are kept informed of all the issues coming forward concerning this condo development. We will keep you informed through the Marklander, our website or email blasts. Please note that we will hold a community meeting on May 25th at St Clement Church. More to follow in the May newsletter.

The annual cleanup for Bloordale Park and Renforth Creek will take place on Saturday April 18th. Please read further in this issue for additional information about this event. The Scouts, under the leadership of Martin Ross, take a very active role in this cleanup. Thank you for your efforts.

As May approaches, please start thinking about our annual garage sale which will take place on Saturday May 30th. This is a great opportunity to clear out many of the objects that you no longer need or want! I am sure someone will want them!

Enjoy those April rain showers when they finally come!

Take Care,
Georgina Balascas, President
