President's Update

Georgina Balascas

Greetings and Happy 2015!!

I hope you and your family had a wonderful holiday season. For those of you who have made New Year’s resolutions, I hope you have managed to keep them so far ! I cannot believe that we are half way through January already! Spring is only 2 months away!! I like to be optimistic!!

On December 14th I spent a wonderful day participating in our Christmas Caravan. I particularly enjoyed seeing the look on the children’s faces as they waited for Santa who joined us for our caravan. It was just delightful! As always, our wonderful Markland Wood community showed their generous spirit by donating food, clothing, and cash. Martin Ross deserves a great big thank you for the incredible job he does every year organizing this huge and important event. Please read the article in this edition for a complete update on the Christmas Caravan 2014. Our thanks also to all the volunteers who helped make this event a reality.
