Welcome to the MBC 2019 Spring Newsletter
Winter. There is just so much activity happening in The Highlands. No matter what takes you outside the winter can be a delight. Family Day 2019 will go down in memory as one specular weekend for winter fun. Sunshine for the entire weekend that seemed to bring out MBC members enjoying everything from cross country skiing to bonfires with family and friends.
There have been hints lately of another season, “Cottage” or as some like to call it Spring. The first Saturday of the March Break sent folks scrambling for deck chairs and sunscreen. Then winter returned! Oh well we will get there.
You may recall the Membership Survey that was sent out last fall. Your participation exceeded our expectations. Many hoped for a greater sense of community within the group, continued education of our natural environment, and a desire to have some fun. To that end the MBC executive have been busy developing programs and events that hopefully will meet your expectations. There is an event calendar attached to this newsletter for your reference. As the various events draw nearer we will put additional information on the web site and send emails to each of you.
The rebuilding of the MBC Sponsorship Program is underway and we are pleased to announce that Abbey Gardens, SIRCH, and the Trillium Team, Royal LePage Lakes of Haliburton Reality group have stepped up with support. This is an ongoing effort so keep an eye on the web page for announcements to come.
So folks get ready for it. There is a feeling that Cottage Season really is just around the corner.
