President's Update

Happy New Year!

 

I hope everyone had a good holiday season. I certainly did until this frigid weather came along! Everyone keeps telling me this is Canada when I start to complain about the temperatures but I believe this is extreme even for Canada! However, March is only two months away and the days are getting a bit longer! There is hope! So I will just grin and bear it and look forward to spring.

 

Next month, we are holding our Marklander Cover Contest for Valentine's Day. We are asking all children 10 years of age and under to submit a drawing that will be used as a front cover for the February issue. All entries must be submitted by January 26th. Please read further in this issue for more details.

Christmas Caravan 2017

MWHA Christmas Caravan 50th Anniversary!

To be able to celebrate any 50th Anniversary is very special and on December 10th, we celebrated that occasion for our annual Christmas Caravan! Who would have thought that a small community such as Markland Wood could continue its tradition of collecting food and clothing for local charities for all these years? Over the decades, we have seen many changes with many new volunteers. We have said goodbye to those that have moved away (even though some come back just for Caravan) and others that have passed away. As we met at the plaza, we took a moment to reflect.
