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.

Click on the tab marked “Who we are” and then click on “Youth Awards”. Complete all parts of the application. The deadline for applications is midnight April 30th.

Community services performed by youth are intended to strengthen young peoples' senses of civic engagement and community, and to help them achieve their educational, developmental and social goals.

Community leaders will often attest to the necessity of engaging youth in deliberating, planning, implementing, and reflecting on their community service resulting in an enhanced learning experience.
It is with in mind that the Markland Wood Homes Association once again offers the
Youth Community Leadership Award to young residents of Markland who have
exhibited the community involvement and leadership the award was designed to
recognize.
The $1000 awards will be given to two students who are graduating from high
school. These are students from the Markland Wood community who:
1) Demonstrate outstanding and consistent outreach to their community; and,
2) Have been accepted for entrance to, and enrolled in, an accredited Canadian
University or Community College in the coming year.
Expressions of interest are to be submitted to the Blinder of the Youth Community
Leadership Award Committee by the midnight April 30th. At that time, the applicant should
provide to the Award Committee duplicate copies of:
a) A 500 word essay, written by the student, describing his/her
community leadership involvement which should include: insight into personal motivation
to undertake the activity; what has been accomplished; what meaningful contribution
has been made to the community, and what he or she has learned from the experience.
b) Two letters of reference from the community group(s), or individuals
who have been the focus of the student’s involvement.
c) A completed application form. The form can be found at www.marklandwood.org.
