There are so many people that we owe so much to - even more so in these challenging times.  To be sure, our Frontline Responders are owed a huge debt of gratitude.  Thank you.  Thank you.  Thank you.  We bang our pots for thee!!!!

But there are others putting themselves and their employees at risk to serve their community: our small businesses and merchants.

One that is near and dear to our home on Georgian Bay is the Honey Harbour General Store.  Yong and his thoughtful, caring Staff are following all the proper social distancing protocols.  Curbside pickup also available.  Call 705-756-2472.  Thank you, Yong.  We wish you well.

It will be a challenging time trying to meet payroll, pay utilities, keep shelves stocked….Let’s pitch in, help, and “pay it forward”.

Please join We The Bay and contribute to the GoFundMe campaign we’ve established to help the Honey Harbour General Store.  All funds received will be sent directly to Yong.  Yong will keep track of the funds you’ve contributed and credit your future purchases towards the amount.
