Markland Wood | Community Established in 1960

President's Update

Georgina Balascas

Hello Everyone,

As I am writing this update, I see the first real sign of winter: snow!! I am sure the skiers in our community are getting excited, but the golfers must be really upset that their season has come to an end. Although I don’t participate in either sport, I am not happy that winter is upon us! I am not looking forward to the cold and the long dark evenings, but at least we have much to look forward to.

The holidays are coming and soon the festive lights and decorations will be out in Markland Wood and we can enjoy their beauty as we walk or drive though our wonderful community. In addition, the annual Christmas Caravan is just around the corner happening on December 16th. Each year Markland Wood residents have an opportunity to share the spirit of Christmas with others who may not be as fortunate. We make our way through the community and we pick up your non-perishable food, gently used clothing or small furniture items. If you would like to join us, we meet at Markland Plaza at 8:45 a.m. that morning. I would love to see you there. So would Santa!
