Happy Valentine’s Day!

I can’t believe that February is already here and the official start of spring is only six weeks away! In celebration of that event we are holding our annual Marklander Cover Contest for spring. Once again, we are asking all children 10 years of age and under to submit a drawing that will be used as a front cover for this year’s March issue. All entries must be submitted by February 29th. Please read further in this issue for more details.

On January 10th, our MPP, Yvan Baker, held his annual levee and ceremony for the Etobicoke Centre Community Recognition Awards for 2015. We are delighted that the MWHA nominees were selected as recipients of an award for outstanding volunteer service to the community. Our sincerest congratulations go to Roma Donatelli, Richard Boehnke and Saulius Brikis for their outstanding work on the MWHA Airport Committee...

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?

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.
