President's Update


Hi everyone!

This time of year, I can almost feel people urging things along to see that final break in the weather and the first signs of the early flowers poking their heads out of the soil. It is coming, almost any day now.

I want to start this month by talking to you about the MWHA dues we collect each year. Each of the Directors on your MWHA Board picks up one Route Book in the Fall to begin the collection process. Each Book has all the houses listed for usually 3 streets adjacent to each other. The Director comes to your front door and seeks to make a personal connection with you. While residents can pay by PayPal or by dropping a cheque for $20 into Directors’ mailboxes, this is one of the few opportunities Board members have to speak with you about your issues. The Director asks whether your listed phone number is still correct and if you would mind giving your email address for our records. This is important to ensure emergency Blasts sent out via our website get to as many residents as possible. We are still collecting this year. We know that each year new people move into our wonderful neighbourhood, people who as yet may not know about the dues collection and what the MWHA does for the community. If you know of neighbours or friends in Markland who are new, ask them on our behalf if they have paid their dues. If not, they can drop a cheque or cash payment into my mailbox at 25 Thicket Road, with their ad-dress and name clearly visible. We will ensure it gets to the Membership Committee. If you have not paid your dues please drop it in my mailbox as well. We need to make sure we can afford to continue the long list of activities we finance for the community. Please help us collect from every Marklander this and every year.
