President's Update

Markland Wood describes itself as a “circle of friends”. This month we would like to enlarge our circle and include the community of Humboldt. By now everyone is aware of the horrific accident that has tragically taken 16 lives and injured several others. The Markland Wood community would like to send their thoughts and prayers to the family and friends of all the victims. Our cover this month shows that we stand with the Humboldt Broncos and that we feel their grief and pain. May they find comfort knowing that others care.

Last month I wrote that we will be holding a Candidates Meeting on the evening of May 23rd at St. Clement Church. Please read the article by Tom Napier, a member of our Board, that gives more details about the evening. The MWHA feels this is a very important event and we encourage everyone to attend.


The MWHA committees are continuing their work. The Airport Committee and the Committee for the development at 240 Markland Drive are particularly busy. We will continue to provide updates for you when new and important information comes forward.

A reminder again that the Garage Sale will be occurring on Saturday, May 26th. This is a great event for the community so please start collecting your sale items now!

As I write this update, I look out my window and all I see is ice and snow in April!! Where are the budding trees and the flowers that should be popping out of the ground? What bizarre weather we are having! I am anxiously awaiting a real spring season with sunshine, warmth and blossoms! I have absolutely had enough of winter! How about you? Hopefully May will bring the spring that we are all waiting for.

Regards until next time,
Georgina Balascas, President
Markland Wood Homeowners Association
