Board Update

Yes, we will be operating on “summer hours”, but, as a Board, we are always available to assist or answer any of your questions throughout the summer. Below, you will find an update from our 22 Division Community Response Unit members, which includes their contact numbers. They can also be reached by email at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. in addition to contacting 22 Division, please also send your safety crime or other concerns via email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .  This is the direct communication link for residents to our neighbourhood Safety Committee.

This in no way replaces your obligation to report any crime to the police first. Emails to Markland Watch provide us with a way of keeping track of any occurrences in the neighbourhood and, if necessary, advising all our residents of immediate safety concerns via our email blasts. To ensure that you are notified of any potential safety concerns throughout the year, please email your name, address, phone numbers and email address to MWHAPresident@Marklandwoodorg

On this month's cover we have noted two important dates for our residents to make note of. The first is for our Markland Fall Social. This annual event provides residents, new and old, with an opportunity to meet and get to know their fellow neighbours. This year’s social will be chaired by Michele Maher and she need the assistance of some capable resident volunteers to ensure that we host another successful event. if you would like to assist please contact her at (416) 622-6226.

The second important date is for our Annual General Meeting (AGM). This year's AGM will be a very important one due to a number of changes within our Board and also to our bylaws that will be put forth for approval by our community members. Further details about the AGM will be provided in the October Marklander.

To date we have not been informed by the City Planning Department about any new submissions by the developer of 240 Markland Drive, even though a submission was expected in June. This does not mean that there won't be any submission this summer. In the event that we are notified about any activity, your MWHA, through its 240 Committee, will react swiftly to ensure that the community is kept abreast of any such activity.  Any information that becomes available to us will be shared via an email blast and also posted on our Markland Wood website.

We would like to send out a special thank you to all the Markland students that submitted their applications for our annual Youth Community Leadership Awards. The number of applications we received this year far exceeded our expectations and as a community we should all be very proud of them. We wish all the applicants the best of luck, not only through the award process,  but also with their respective future studies.

Lastly, we wish everyone a fun and safe summer. We’ll be in touch again in September!

Christmas Caravan 2015

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.

Well done Markland Wood!!

We truly are a generous and giving community and for that we should all be proud but volunteers are still desperately needed at CultureLink over the next 10 days – Can you help them out?

Empty 26' Truck

Sunday December 13th - 9am – Our 26’ CultureLink U-Haul truck rolls into the Christmas Caravan vehicle line in preparation for our procession through Markland Wood.

 

Many people questioned the size of our rental truck…some even laughed…have faith we told them!
