It may only be the 1st of June but it feels like mid-summer in Parry Sound – warm & sunny every day – the only thing missing is the crowds of summer residents and tourists. We are anxiously awaiting your return! The downtown construction is almost finished – we are able to drive down the main street most days now, finishing touches are being made to the sidewalks. It will be very lovely when finished but there is no doubt that it has had a negative effect on downtown shopping this spring – so now that it is done, please return and frequent your favourite downtown businesses!
The water on Georgian Bay is lower than ever – there is already a fire ban in effect – but the swimming is great! This summer has the making of one of the best ever for camping and cottage visits.
New Releases include
The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest by Steig Larsson, the 3rd and final in his popular series.
