President's Update

Well.....

Ground Hog Day has come and gone and I still don’t know if I will be singing in the rain shortly or hibernating for another 6 weeks!! As I am writing this, I see plenty of sunshine, but as I glance down I still see lots of snow!! Can’t those ground hogs get it right? Whatever the next six weeks hold, this is Canada, and we will survive another winter, but I am really looking forward to spring!

During the month of January, the MWHA continued its work. The Airport Committee met with our new Councillor, Stephen Holyday. We very much appreciated the opportunity to meet with him and to provide a context for the airport issues of concern to our residents. We also briefly touched on other issues, such as the 240 Markland Drive proposed condo development. We will meet again with Councillor Holyday at a later date to expand further on the current issues that impact our community.

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!
