President's Update

Well.....

Ground Hog Day has come and gone and I still don’t know if I will be singing in the rain shortly or hibernating for another 6 weeks!! As I am writing this, I see plenty of sunshine, but as I glance down I still see lots of snow!! Can’t those ground hogs get it right? Whatever the next six weeks hold, this is Canada, and we will survive another winter, but I am really looking forward to spring!

During the month of January, the MWHA continued its work. The Airport Committee met with our new Councillor, Stephen Holyday. We very much appreciated the opportunity to meet with him and to provide a context for the airport issues of concern to our residents. We also briefly touched on other issues, such as the 240 Markland Drive proposed condo development. We will meet again with Councillor Holyday at a later date to expand further on the current issues that impact our community.

Christmas Caravan 2014

Caravan 2014 was again a huge success and the residents of Markland should be very proud for being able to help so many. The day was beautiful and the donations plentiful.

Close to 18,000 lbs. of food, a truckload of clothes and almost $1,000.00 in cash. One of our biggest yet!

Our recipients were the Brothers of the Good Shepherd, The Scott Mission and the Daily Bread Food Bank. The clothing was donated to Goodwill of Toronto. Monies were distributed to The Toronto Star Santa Fund and house wares donated to the Furniture Bank.
