Community Involvement

The McGregor family is proud to be involved in the local community. We feel that by giving back we say "thank you" for all of the business local patrons have given us.

We think taking part is essential to a healthy and strong community. Providing donations to local events or charities is how we feel that we can help to achieve this goal.
