Happy New Year!


I hope everyone had a good holiday season. I certainly did until this frigid weather came along! Everyone keeps telling me this is Canada when I start to complain about the temperatures but I believe this is extreme even for Canada! However, March is only two months away and the days are getting a bit longer! There is hope! So I will just grin and bear it and look forward to spring.


Next month, we are holding our Marklander Cover Contest for Valentine's Day. We are asking all children 10 years of age and under to submit a drawing that will be used as a front cover for the February issue. All entries must be submitted by January 26th. Please read further in this issue for more details.

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 (partners with Metroland Media) were our media sponsor in May 2014. 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 May 2014 than in years prior! Each resident who set up for the Garage Sale that day received balloons from and they also had a booth set up.
