MDVA Notice To Members regarding COVID-19
Members, with the continued rise in the number of COVID 19 infected people in the Province, and out of an abundance of caution to protect our members, many of whom are in the most vulnerable category, the Board has decided to close the club for a minimum of 2 weeks starting Monday March 16th.
There is no vaccine or known cure against this virus and people can be socializing not knowing they are infected as they may not exhibit any symptoms early on. Therefore, the Ministry of Health is asking people to observe good personal hygiene, social distancing and to self isolate for 2 weeks if they have returned from a foreign country or are sick or feeling unwell.
Social distancing and self isolation is not in our DNA, so while I know that some members will be disappointed with the closure, we are thinking of the greater good of the membership as a whole.This is a tough call but when we look around and see what the community is doing, libraries closing, churches suspending services, schools and daycare’s closing, etc., the Board knows this is the right and responsible thing to do at this time. We will monitor the situation and will keep you updated on any changes required.
MDVA Board of Directors
Welcome to the official website of the
Markham District Veterans’ Association
Located in downtown Markham, we have often been called the ‘best kept secret’ in town.
Until recently, membership was only available for Veterans, immediate family and close friends.
Today, membership is open to all who subscribe to the same values as the Veterans, and are willing to further the aims and objectives of the Markham District Veterans Association.
We invite, and encourage you to drop in, say hello, and get involved with your local Veterans Association in the City of Markham.
You will be helping make friends that last for a lifetime.
