President's Update

Georgina Balascas

Hello everyone!

First of all I would like to say what a privilege it is to live in this wonderful community and to be elected your new president. I am deeply honoured that the MWHA has put their faith in me. I started on the Board as an Associate four years ago. Then I moved to Director, became VP last year and now I am starting a three-year term as the President.

I have lived in Markland Wood for 13 years and have really enjoyed getting to know this unique community. This summer I have experienced how wonderful the people in our community truly are while I spent a great deal of time walking through our neighbourhood trying to train my new standard poodle puppy, Athena. Most of the time she walks and trains me!! I had the opportunity to talk to so many dog owners and dog lovers. I want to thank them all for being so friendly and kind to my puppy and for offering me some sage advice on how to survive puppyhood!! It certainly is a full time job!!

Annual Garage Sale

on Saturday, 31 May 2014.

World's Largest Garage Sale!

On Saturday, May 31st, 2014, the Markland Wood Homeowners Association and the whole neighbourhood once again hosted "The World's Largest Community Garage Sale."

"Come one, come all to the greatest bargains in the Greater Toronto Area!"

See a few photos from past Garage Sales held within the Markland Wood community. People come from great distances to shop at this event. "It's like a Garage Sale, Super Store." said one visitor to this annual event.

We were pleased to announce that UsedToronto.com (partners with Metroland Media) were our media sponsor. This meant we had a quarter page ad in two issues of the Etobicoke Guardian and social media exposure through Twitter and Facebook. We had more foot traffic in 2014 than in years prior! Each resident who set up for the Garage Sale that day received balloons from UsedToronto.com and they also had a booth set up. 

Visit soon to see when the 2015 Markland Wood Annual Community Garage Sale will be held. See photos from the May 31st, 2014 World's Largest Garage Sale here!
