Happy New Year!,
I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season with family and friends. It’s hard to believe that we are into another year! It certainly feels like time is speeding up!
At least it does to me. Do others feel the same way? Time flies….so they say!
First of all, I would like to thank Martin Ross and all the volunteers who came to help with our Annual Christmas Caravan in December. It was a great event and once again we witnessed the generous spirit of the Markland Wood community. We thank you for your contributions and we truly appreciate your response to the needs of others.
The MWHA has several issues that we are constantly monitoring. We usually communicate these to the community through email blasts. Markland Watch does an incredible job of informing us about some of these issues such as coyote sightings, car thefts, break-ins, etc.
There are other major issues that we are engaged in that take up a great deal of time, energy and sometimes financial resources, such as the GTAA and future infill developments that may be occurring in Markland Wood in addition to 240 Markland Drive. There will be more information about the issues that impact Markland Wood in future editions of this newsletter.
In addition to the serious concerns that we have to deal with, the MWHA also likes to have fun! So…..this spring we will be hosting a Social for the community at the Markland Wood Golf Club on Friday, May 10th. I hope you will join us. We would love to see you there. More details will follow as we get closer to the date.
Our Cover Contest will be held for the April issue and the theme will be spring, Easter and new beginnings. More details to follow in subsequent issues.
The Annual Garage Sale will be held on Saturday, May 25th. Start cleaning out the garage and the basement now so you can be ready for this event! On Saturday, September 28th we will be hosting another Family Fun Day. Please mark your calendars now. And before you know it, our Directors will be out in July collecting dues again for 2019-2020. For those of you who have not paid the 2018-2019 Membership Dues, please do so at your earliest convenience.
This will be a very busy year for the MWHA. We appreciate your support and we will continue to work hard on your behalf. All the best for a healthy and happy 2019!
Regards until next time,
Georgina Balascas, President
