This in no way replaces your obligation to report any crime to the police first. Emails to Markland Watch provide us with a way of keeping track of any occurrences in the neighbourhood and, if necessary, advising all our residents of immediate safety concerns via our email blasts. To ensure that you are notified of any potential safety concerns throughout the year, please email your name, address, phone numbers and email address to MWHAPresident@Marklandwoodorg
On this month's cover we have noted two important dates for our residents to make note of. The first is for our Markland Fall Social. This annual event provides residents, new and old, with an opportunity to meet and get to know their fellow neighbours. This year’s social will be chaired by Michele Maher and she need the assistance of some capable resident volunteers to ensure that we host another successful event. if you would like to assist please contact her at (416) 622-6226.
The second important date is for our Annual General Meeting (AGM). This year's AGM will be a very important one due to a number of changes within our Board and also to our bylaws that will be put forth for approval by our community members. Further details about the AGM will be provided in the October Marklander.
To date we have not been informed by the City Planning Department about any new submissions by the developer of 240 Markland Drive, even though a submission was expected in June. This does not mean that there won't be any submission this summer. In the event that we are notified about any activity, your MWHA, through its 240 Committee, will react swiftly to ensure that the community is kept abreast of any such activity. Any information that becomes available to us will be shared via an email blast and also posted on our Markland Wood website.
We would like to send out a special thank you to all the Markland students that submitted their applications for our annual Youth Community Leadership Awards. The number of applications we received this year far exceeded our expectations and as a community we should all be very proud of them. We wish all the applicants the best of luck, not only through the award process, but also with their respective future studies.
Lastly, we wish everyone a fun and safe summer. We’ll be in touch again in September!
