On Sunday, December 13th 2015 the Markland Wood Homeowners Association celebrated our 48th Christmas Caravan. This is our annual event to collect nonperishable food and clothing from every home on every street in Markland Wood!
This had to be by far one of the best Christmas Caravan and probably one of the busiest!
On the Friday night prior, several friends and neighbours gathered in my garage, eager to tape and prepare 100’s and 100’s of boxes ready for Sunday’s collections. They were done in record time and they all held together.
As Sunday morning came, the transport trailer arrived bright and early and all the cartons were loaded, tables set up, garbage bins readied and the packaging team assembled. Everyone arrived at the Markland Plaza, volunteers, three straight trucks, police escort vehicles, a fire truck, our tractor trailer, sound vehicle and even Santa Claus. We were ready to go.
