Markland Wood | Community Established in 1960

President's Update

Georgina Balascas

Hello everyone and welcome back!

I hope you took the opportunity to enjoy the wonderful weather we had this summer. I enjoyed seeing many residents taking advantage of the Markland circle by walking, jogging, or cycling around it! It was wonderful being outside, enjoying the fresh air and chatting with neighbours. The gardens of Markland Wood were as beautiful as ever and it was nice to see many residents working very hard to maintain them.

We are trying to have a semblance of a normal life, but it is difficult to forget that we are in the middle of a pandemic. I am reminded of that fact every time I put on a mask to go to the store or to stay physically 2 metres apart from another person. Unfortunately, COVID-19 is still with us and is continuing to cause anxiety and stress. It is never far from my mind and that knowledge determines where I go and how I interact with people. We must still follow the restrictions that have been imposed on us to maintain our health and the health of others.

Because of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic we are making The Marklander September 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/Sep_2020.pdf
