We are very proud to present our new on-line Booking Management solution, called Stay by the Bay. We are in the process of introducing this feature to local hotels, motels, country inns and chalet rental organizations in our area so that by the time ski season is once again upon us, you will have an on-line reservation system in place for your choice, convenience and simplicity. We look forward to bringing you updates as we move forward with this exciting implementation.
My favourite new feature is called Out & About, which is my blog where I can post information on the fly…great stuff like sales at your favourite store that just can’t wait for the next e-newsletter.
We have also just added a section for New Home Developments and also a section called Seniors/Boomers. We will be completing the content in both of these new sections over the next couple of weeks.
Mark your calendars for the weekend of August 24-26 for The 2nd Annual Wasaga Beach Fest and the August 25th for the Creemore Copper Kettle Festival. These are both great events that should not be missed. As usual our Events and Activities calendars are busting at the seams with all of the details.
