Georgian Bay was already a popular lumber and tourist area when the Manitou Association was formed in 1929. Local hotels were well served by steamers from the south, each boasting a long wooden dock for the arrival of guests and supplies. A group of cottages in the Moose Deer Point area built their own private dock on a tiny island that lay within the archipelago of cottages and camps. It became known as Manitou Dock and has served as the gathering point for the fifty or so families that inhabit the area each summer.

If you and your family are concerned about climate change, pollution, and preserving wetlands, Georgian Bay Forever (GBF) has a program for you. It’s called Families For Change (F4C).
How does it work?
It’s entirely up to your family. GBF’s F4C program can take as much time as you and your family have to devote to it. Your family can choose from 16 tasks in 3 different categories, or you can simply focus on one or two.
The categories include:
1. Decreasing Greenhouse Gas Emissions
2. Reducing Waste and Litter in the Environment, and
3. Preserving wetlands by tackling and getting educated about invasive species.
Please join families making a difference in reducing our collective impacts on the future of the environment.
Please see attached, Michael & Saskia Harman available for Painting, Outdoor work, Odd jobs between July 5-19, 2021. Contact Michael: Michael.email@example.com (click here for poster)
In light of the fact that the return-to-school schedule has been delayed and there appear to be more full time residents using the transfer stations this season, we will be extending our summer hours of operation by 2 weeks, or until the 28th of September.
