President's Update

Finally, there is light at the end of this long, dark tunnel. As I write this update, I can see the light shining through slowly as we await the Stage 2 opening to be declared for our city by the government and the public health officials. I can already feel the stress and anxiety of the past few months gradually lifting. People are beginning to enjoy the warm summer weather as the restrictions on the size of our social and family circles are eased. However, COVID-19 is still with us as we start to move back to a “normal” life. We must still maintain social distancing, wherever possible. It has now become a common sight for citizens to wear masks in public. They have been declared mandatory for certain locations and areas of our lives. I believe this is a small price to pay to keep you, your family and others safe.

Because of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic we are making The Marklander June 2020 issue available in PDF format. If you would like to download a copy of The Marklander, follow this link:  

Keep up the good fight, Marklanders. We are almost there. We are still a very vibrant and strong community despite the abnormal existence we have had these past few months. We are coming out of hibernation and we have survived.

I hope some of you are taking advantage of the wonderful Food Trucks event that is taking place every Wednesday evening in the parking lot of Bloordale United Church. See Food Truck'n Wednesday below for details.  

You have received email blasts referencing the trucks that will be there for a particular week.

Thanks to the MWHA Social Committee for all their hard work to bring these trucks to Markland Wood. The food is delicious and this gives you an opportunity to get out of the kitchen.

This is the final edition of the Marklander until September. The MWHA and I would like to thank each of you for your support throughout this year especially during these past several weeks.

This has been a very difficult and trying experience for everyone. My hope is that you and your family have an enjoyable and healthy summer!

Stay safe, stay well!
