    Just a quick heads up.
    There is Giant Hogweed on Peninsula rd, pretty much opposite the driveway of 400.
    For those who aren't aware. This stuff can cause really bad burns to anybody touching it.
    And it's confirmed, I sent the photos to

    Have you seen a missing dock near Pine Island on North Muldrew?

    It is approximately 10'x9' with a small ramp on it.

    It was lost near Pine Island 3NM2 on North Muldrew Lake (close to the Middle Church portage between North and Middle Lake).

    If you've seen this missing dock or know where it is, kindly contact Kendall Anderson at 416-518-4465

    Many Thanks and Safe Boating while this dock is still out there.

    A 7150 sq. ft., 7 bedroom, 8 bathroom house with a 3-car garage may soon loom over S. Muldrew Lake.


    The Litterst application to build on Hardcastle point in S. Muldrew Lake is coming back to Gravenhurst Town Council for reconsideration on Tuesday, June 25 at 5 PM. In our opinion, this project is excessively large for the site in particular and for our lake in general. With the help of MLCA, a group of concerned residents has been fighting this application and won a deferral at a Town Council meeting in April.


    The applicants have asked for relief from adhering to prescribed setbacks in building this huge house, which is both too wide and too tall for the narrow peninsula property in question and out of character with the surrounding cottaging community. The applicants also propose to build a separate 3-car garage (with an 8th bedroom and 9th bathroom) that is bigger than the original cottage on the property. The footprint of the proposed dock plus boathouse area is also excessive.


    Despite meeting with concerned residents and touring the lake, and despite improved siting, the applicants and their agents have not made sufficient changes to the size of proposed dwelling and garage. The scale of this project has the potential to significantly reduce the ability of surrounding cottagers to enjoy their properties and could set a dangerous precedent allowing overbuilding on our small narrow lake.


    We need YOU to:


    1) Send a message to one or all Councillors (see below) by phone or email, asking them to reject the Zoning Bylaw Amendments requested in the Litterst application

    building project [ZA 09-2019] for #1176-7 Woodland Drive and requiring the proposed project to conform to at least the 20 m historical setbacks, if not the 30 m current setbacks specified in the Gravenhurst Official Plan.


    2) Register to speak about your concerns for the Tues June 25, 2019 meeting of Town Council. Call 705-687-2230. Anyone wishing to speak at Planning Council needs to follow the instructions and fill out the form found in the attached link.


    3) SHOW UP at the Town Council meeting on Tues June 25, 2019 and lend your support for maintaining the character of our lake. Come the Council Chambers are 3-5 Pineridge Gate, Gravenhurst.


    4) Send a message to Town Planning staff expressing your opposition to any shrinking of setbacks. Gravenhurst Town Planner Kris Orsan:


    5) Sign a Petition email for a copy.

    You can print, fill out, sign, then scan and email it to the Gravenhurst Town Planning Dept, Kris Orsan:, or send it via email to

    6) PASS ON this message to anyone you feel can support our position.

    Gravenhurst Opera House Summer Brochure.pdf

    Dear Lake Dwellers!

    It seems as though spring may have forgotten its roadmap but I’m sure we’ll be complaining about the hot weather in due time.  In the meantime, we are very excited to welcome you back to cottage and boating season on our beautiful Muskoka waterways.

    The Gravenhurst Opera House has another terrific summer season planned and we couldn’t wait to tell you all about it!

    The Gravenhurst Opera House has been a cultural cornerstone since 1901 and with that tradition in mind, we are happy that it continues to be a focal point for great entertainment all year long.

    Summer Theatre in Canada started right here 85 years ago and we are very proud to continue the cherished tradition of professional summer theatre in our beautiful, historic venue.

    Our 2019 Summer Theatre season will make you laugh, cry and dance in the aisles.  Opening with Harvest (June 26 to July 19), the story of a rental deal that goes ‘to pot’ or ‘up in smoke’. Well, you get the idea.  This very timely and very funny play by Canadian playwright Ken Cameron is a brilliantly written two hander, based on his parents’ real life experience.  

    This season’s musical takes us back to the days of Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis!  This famous duo was loved around the world but their partnership didn’t last.  Dean & Jerry: What Might Have Been (July 24 to August 16) by Jesse Collins, delivers a very funny concert of old standards and old jokes.  Accompanied by a full band, stars of the show; Derek Marshall and Nicolas Arnold will transport you back to the clubs of Vegas.  

    The final theatre production of the summer is Kalamazoo (September 11 to 27).  This lovely story by Michelle Kholos Brooks and Kelly Younger finds Peg and Irving both alone in their later years.  Encouraged by family, they turn to on-line dating.  What could possibly go wrong?  More importantly, what could go right?  With second chances filled with humourous moments, this romantic comedy delivers a new lease on life for this unlikely couple.

    **Don’t forget about our Show Us You’re Local Program.  If you pay taxes in the Town of Gravenhurst, bring us proof of residency and you’ll receive our Local 2 for 1 rate for our summer theatre performances.  That’s $20 per ticket on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays all summer long!  (tickets must be purchased in pairs). We also have group and package rates.  Just check in with our Box Office and they’ll be happy to tell you all about the great ways to save.

    Our summer concerts are also a must see!  On Saturday, June 8th we have one of Toronto’s favourite bands, The Jive Bombers who will have you jumpin’ and jivin’ in the aisles.  They’re also bringing special guest Johnny Max with them who we all know and love!  On Saturday, August 17thJack Hutton & Friends will be back with what they’re calling their ‘Farewell Tour’.  Jack and friends are world renowned ragtime and jazz players which always makes for a fun night.  Grammy nominated producer and musician, Lance Anderson will be back this year with another incredible line up that will take us back 50 years to Woodstock, the festival of festivals!  On Saturday, August 24thWoodstock at 50 will feature many highlights from that unforgettable weekend.  This year’s Summer Season Wrap Up concert on Saturday, September 28th features North America’s Premier tribute to ‘Tapestry, The Carole King Songbook’ starring Suzanne O Davis. 

    We’ve attached our summer season brochure and an ad for you to share with your members, include in your newsletters or on your social media channels to help spread the word about our Show Us You’re Local program and how you can sign up for our e-newsletters.

    Our Box Office is open Tuesday to Saturday from 10:00 am until 3:00 pm and 10:00 am until show time on performance days.  You can purchase tickets in person or by phone at 705-687-5550 or toll free at 1-888-495-8888.  The Box Office email address is .  For a full listing of what is happening at the Opera House, please visit our website at

    The Gravenhurst Opera House is Muskoka’s oldest entertainment tradition and the place to be all summer long!  Be sure to mark your calendars for all these great show!

    We look forward to welcoming you back or for the very first time and hope that your time with us is treasured!
