Busy Summers in Muskoka!

Summer in Muskoka is always a busy time, trying to take advantage of the wonderful weather and so many special events. Visit Muskoka Tourism at this link to discover all there is to do in our beautiful area.

Here’s what I’m up to the next few weeks! Still lots of planning and work to be done for a couple of art shows and two reading events.

Refreshments and Door Prizes

Join us for two evenings of great entertainment with 9 talented writers at each event. These are the 2nd and 3rd nights of readings that started with the Haliburton event on July 15. Initiated 3 years ago by Melody Richardson, the writing groups from Haliburton, Baysville and Bracebridge have continued this summer tradition. This year all of the evenings are dedicated to Melody who died in June of this year. Her energy, enthusiasm and encouragement will be missed by all of the writers in Haliburton and Muskoka who had the privilege to know her.
