Greetings to Markland Wood!
I can’t believe it is the holiday season already and a new decade is fast approaching! I wonder what the next 10 years will bring for our community? I hope they will be good ones for everyone.
In the meantime, we have to get through this holiday season and as the song says, “It’s the most wonderful time of the year”. Markland Wood is already beginning to look like a winter wonderland! The lights are lit, the decorations are hung and the Christmas trees are beginning to appear in the windows! Take a drive or a walk in the evening and observe how beautiful our community looks! However, this time of year can be rather hectic so I do hope you can take the opportunity to appreciate the joys of this season.
By the time you receive this edition of the Marklander, the Christmas Caravan may be in progress or it may be finished. However, if your newsletter arrives before Sunday, December 15th, I would like to invite you to join us at the Markland Plaza at 9:00 a.m. and help spread cheer throughout our community and support others by donating food, clothing, small household items and monies. A special thank you goes to Martin Ross who always does an extraordinary job of organizing this very large and important event each year.
The new MWHA Board is already hard at work. We have formed the following committees to work on issues and concerns that may arise throughout the coming months: Airport, Safety, Positively Promoting Markland, Social and finally the Website committee. We continue to communicate with Councillor Holyday and keep him informed of the issues that are of concern to our residents. We will be meeting with the Councillor in the New Year to discuss some of these matters.
I want to wish each of you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Take time to enjoy this wondrous season of beauty, joy and hope. All the best to you and yours.
Georgina Balascas, President
