President's Update

Georgina Balascas

Hello!

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: http://www.marklandwood.org/images/Marklander/PDF/June_2020.pdf

2020 Annual Garage Sale is Cancelled

on Saturday, 30 May 2020.

World's Largest Garage Sale is Cancelled for May 2020!

The Saturday, May 30th, 2020, Markland Wood Homeowners Association Community Garage Sale is cancelled due to the COVID-19 social distancing regulations set by Province of Ontario guidelines.

 

We hope to continue the "The World's Largest Community Garage Sale."  in May 2021.

 

"Come one, come all to the greatest bargains in the Greater Toronto Area!"

The 2019 Markland Wood Garage Sale was held on Saturday May 25th.

Don't forget to mark this annual event into your calendar.

See a few photos from past Garage Sales held within the Markland Wood community. People come from great distances to shop at this event. "It's like a Garage Sale, Super Store." said one visitor to this annual event.

We were pleased to announce that UsedToronto.com (partners with Metroland Media) were our media sponsor in May 2014. This meant we had a quarter page ad in two issues of the Etobicoke Guardian and social media exposure through Twitter and Facebook. We had more foot traffic in May 2014 than in years prior! Each resident who set up for the Garage Sale that day received balloons from UsedToronto.com and they also had a booth set up.
