“McGregor Bay is a secret that only a favoured few know. lt is the password to the hearts of those who love it - and all who know it, love it - and a symbol for many memorable emotions. To the stranger, the name is an empty sound, meaning nothing, But to those who have heard its mournful loons on a moonlight night, to those who have smelled the freshness of its misty daybreaks, and to those who have known the glory of its evening stars, the name is a dear one to be remembered forever. Its’ charm never leaves the heart and a desire to return again and again haunts one. McGregor Bay is a forgotten magical spot on the Ontario map.”

Some parts of this website are under construction and being reorganized.

Your patience is appreciated!

MBA Board of Directors

I am no longer a member of the MBA Board of Directors but I continue to be Co-Chair of the Fire Committee and Chair of the Fishing Committee. Being a member of the board was a rewarding experience and, most importantly, I meet a lot of really nice people, even though we did not always agree on some issues. Anyone who wants to have input on what happens in McGregor Bay must attend the Board meetings and, by the way, you all are welcome as these are open meetings. A good example is last years input on the NEMI zoning by-laws. The MBA and Bay of Islands Associations played a VERY important role in changes made to the proposed zoning by-laws before they were adopted. While some may not agree with some of the changes made at the time and more recently, member INPUT was effective and important. If you do not want to be a board member, you can always ask to be on a committee.
