AGM 2019

Thanks you to the many of you who joined us for our recent AGM on July 20th. A report of the meeting and speakers will be available shortly.

In the meantime, one of the discussion topics concerned cottagers and renters that showed little regard for what cottaging is all about. The Ratepayers developed a "Muskoka Etiquette" document several years ago that we promised to highlight on the web site. It can be found at - Muskoka Etiquette Muskoka Etiquette
