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

Christmas Caravan 2019

on Sunday, 15 December 2019.

MWHA Christmas Caravan 52th Anniversary!

The 2019 Christmas Caravan was held on Sunday December 15th.

Our 52nd Annual Christmas Caravan took place this Sunday December 15th at 9am and we thank you for your help with both, donations for those less fortunate than us, as well as collection assistance! The caravan started at 9am at the Markland Plaza with our full complement of parade regulars that included the Toronto Police Service (TPS) and Toronto Fire vehicles, The TPS Mounted Unit with their horses, our music truck playing Christmas carols, the Daily Bread Food Bank truck, the Salvation Army truck for gently used clothing, the TPS Toy Van and of course the Big Man in Red... Santa who gave candies to and took photos with all the young Marklanders.

Every home in Markland Wood was visited during our Caravan. Those not home please left their donation on their porch and one of our many elves picked them up.
