President's Update

Spring greetings to all!

This wonderful season is finally here! What a joy it is to see the gardens of Markland Wood blossoming with colour! As
everyone knows, the Markland spring rite includes our Annual Garage Sale. This year it will take place on May 28th. This will give you an opportunity to get rid of items that you no longer want or need. I know someone else will appreciate them!

Our final “Circle of Friends” Breakfast will be held on May 29th between 10:30 and 12 noon at the Markland Wood Golf Club. We would love to have you and your family join us again. If you have not attended previously, please come. This is a great opportunity for you to meet other members of our community. If you would like to attend, please contact Anna Schaefer by email at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. . She will gladly make a reservation for you. See you there!

The MWHA is a volunteer organization that works on behalf of the community. In the fall we collect annual membership dues of $20 per household to help support initiatives such as the Christmas Caravan, The Marklander, Markland Watch, our Website, the Annual Garage Sale, the Leadership Award, and many other initiatives that may come up throughout the year...

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!
