I want to appologize to our American members about the extreemly late mailing of the Newsletter and Directory. Last year we used a printer in Ann Arbor, which was very convenient for me, and the Canadian dollar was close enought that the savings were salient enough to justifiy the switch from a local (Espanola) printer. This year, however the Canadian dollar has dropped by 20 - 25% and so I…Continue
THANKS for adding the 2014 newsletter to our website. Hope all future newsletters will be added ASAP after printing.

Let's see an MBA E-mail alias on here somewhere. I wanted to inform the association of an address change and had to involve 7 separate contacts, two of which bounced back. Also, electronic dues payment and online newsletters with opt-out for paper would be nice. Cheques and paper mail are on their way out.
We installed the new WHP in July this year and turned our rogers rocket hub into data only. The signal coverage at our location, TP744, is good and we are enjoying the unlimited long distance (in Canada) feature. We get medium speed internet when surfing.
However, without any warning on July 29, we experienced a 12 hour signal outage that lasted most of the night. The WHP, the hub and my Samsung cell phone would not work .. not able to communicate in case of an emergency .. When…Continue

I came up to McGregor Bay as a young boy, and over the years for short periods of time. Now at 67 I would like to spend more time in the bay. Working as a family's cook would make that possible. If you might have such a position available for the summer of 2015 or know of some one I might contact, please get in touch with me. Additionally I am handy at making repairs and building things. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org

The following message was sent to the Whitefish River First Nation Fire Department and the Expositor:
On behalf of the Kleinschmidt family and the McGregor Bay Association, we would like to say THANK YOU to the Whitefish River First Nation Fire Department for your help in fighting the fire on Kleinschmidt’s island property on Friday, June 20.
The crew knew exactly what to do and when to do it so the fire was contained to a very small area. This fire…Continue

These individuals faught for maintaining the current property tax rate system. It is my understanding that council voted 7-2 in favor of maintaining the current system. So,…Continue

Has anyone else experienced a near wipe out of their bat population? We've always had hundreds nest in a bat house we put up behind our sauna to distract them from the siding. (east end of Is. 748) I have yet to see any flying at dusk and can hear only a few in the bat house. I used to curse them for nesting in the siding and now I'm thrilled to have heard a few there as well. Is it the bat blight (white nose fungus) that's sweeping across the NE?? I saw one dead bat but it didn't…Continue
