President's Update

Georgina Balascas

Hello everyone!

I hate to disappoint you but I think the ground hog lied to us on February 2nd! It certainly does not look like we are going to have an early spring.

The weather has been unbelievable the last few weeks. When the Toronto School Boards give the students a snow day, you know that it must be really bad! But let’s not get too depressed about what winter has done to us this year. I am an optimist and whether spring is early or late, it is coming! March is around the corner! So much for the weather report...

Christmas Caravan 2018

on Sunday, 16 December 2018.

MWHA Christmas Caravan 51th Anniversary!

Caravan 2018 was again a huge success due to the generosity of Marklanders, the dozens of volunteers, contributing companies and individuals. This year I tried a different way of organizing and packing the tons of donated food as a way of making it a little easier to pack, sort and re-sort for our recipients.

For over thirty years a few of us would normally meet in my garage on the Friday night prior to Caravan and tape hundreds and hundreds of boxes but we missed doing that this year as I was trying a different way of packing. This turned out to be a great way to do it and also allowed me much needed time to organize everything else.

Municipal Election Candidates Meeting October 10, 2018

on Tuesday, 18 September 2018.

Toronto Votes 2018“With Great Power comes Great Responsibility” (quote from Spiderman) and there is no greater responsibility than electing (hiring) those who will govern us for the next term in office. Our future governments will determine the way we live for not only their next term in office but will also impact future generations in the way our children and grandchildren live. We are privileged to live in a country and province where we have the opportunity to elect our government and Marklanders hold a prestigious standing where we have a much higher voting turnout than most ridings in Canada, Ontario and the City of Toronto. Obviously the residents of Markland Wood care about how we live and our future generations.

The act of voting takes only moments but will have a huge impact on lives. With that being said, it is the MWHA’s honour to provide you with the opportunity to meet, question and learn about your Municipal candidates who will be asking for your vote. At the time of writing this article, there are only a few candidates who are declared and will ask for your vote in the upcoming Toronto Municipal Election on October 22nd, however, we expect many others from various Parties to participate and of course, all are welcome.
