President's Update

Georgina Balascas

Hi Everyone,

Greeting Marklanders,
It may seem like déjà vu, but indeed I am back as the President of the MWHA. I was elected by the membership at our AGM which took place on October 30th.

I am very excited to be able to serve our wonderful community again.

I am also very pleased to announce that Anna Schaefer has also returned to the Board as the Vice-President. Anna has held many positions at the Board, including President and Past President.

I am looking forward to a very productive and busy year ahead.

We had an excellent turnout for the AGM. The program that evening was very important to our community as we heard what our elected officials are doing to defend Markland Wood against GTAA expansion and the use of runways that will impact negatively on the quality of life in our community. I would like to take this opportunity to thank MP Borys Wrzesnewskyj's Parliamentary Assistant Melissa Tica, our MPP, Yvan Baker and our Councillor for Ward 3 and Deputy Mayor, Stephen Holiday for coming and informing us of their efforts to put an end to the Airport's plans to expand.

Community services performed by youth are intended to strengthen young peoples' senses of civic engagement and community, and to help them achieve their educational, developmental and social goals.

Community leaders will often attest to the necessity of engaging youth in deliberating, planning, implementing, and reflecting on their community service resulting in an enhanced learning experience.
It is with in mind that the Markland Wood Homes Association once again offers the
Youth Community Leadership Award to young residents of Markland who have
exhibited the community involvement and leadership the award was designed to
recognize.

school. These are students from the Markland Wood community who:

  • Demonstrate outstanding and consistent outreach to their community, and;
  • Have been accepted for entrance to, and enrolled in, an accredited Canadian University or Community College in the coming year, Autumn of 2017.

  1. A 500 word essay, written by the student, describing his/her community leadership involvement which should include: insight into personal motivation to undertake the activity; what has been accomplished; what meaningful contribution has been made to the community, and what he or she has learned from the experience.
