President's Update

Georgina Balascas

Hello everyone!

Spring is finally here and Markland Wood is in full bloom so get out and enjoy this lovely spring weather!

It is so wonderful to see our community come alive after a very long and cold winter. As everyone knows, the Markland spring rite includes our Annual Garage Sale. This year it takes place on Saturday, May 30th so start your spring cleaning now and get rid of that clutter that has been piling up all winter!

On April 26th, we held our first “Circle of Friends” Breakfast at the Markland Wood Golf Club. Our thanks to the community members who joined us. We enjoyed a lovely buffet breakfast while getting to know some of our neighbours. The next breakfast will be held on Sunday, May 24th between 10:30 a.m. and 12 noon at the Markland Wood Golf Club. We would love to have you and your family join us again. Invite your friends as well. If you would like to attend please contact Anna Schaefer by email at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. to make a reservation. We are looking forward to meeting you.
