Community Continues to Mull Potential Library Options


In a recent issue of The Independent one of your readers suggested moving the library into Meaford Hall and moving the Hall art into the library, and then turning the library into an arts centre complete with gallery.

On the face of it, this seems to be a great idea. The library would still be central to the town and we would acquire an arts centre which I believe would be a wonderful drawing card for visitors. Furthermore, we wouldn’t need to buy more property. This makes a lot of sense all round, but somehow I suspect there would be snags. For instance, is there enough room in the Hall, given the fact that when there are live performances people need space to mix and mingle during intermission?

Reader: Electric Vehicle Drivers Should Avoid Meaford


The other day my wife and children were returning from a trip so I thought I would try our electric car to see if it was viable to drive long distances. I drove from Woodford to Blue Mountain and gave it a small charge at their free stations at the village. I then went to Barrie and charged it at the free stations at a car dealership. I then drove to the free chargers at the airport.

On the way home I thought to try Highway 10 as it is much shorter distance-wise. I charged at the free super charger at the Caledon library and proceeded to make my way home. There are no quick charge stations between Caledon and Owen Sound on Highway 10, just the 120 volt that most towns are installing at public parking areas.

Easy Riders Love Meaford


The Easy Riders have visited Meaford for the second year in a row. More than 40 riders from the Kitchener bicycle group booked the entire Hilltop Motel and a corner of the Memorial Park Campground from August 15- 18.

They had a wonderful time with better weather this year. Bike routes were mapped out well in advance from 20-70 km for three days. The oldest rider was a young 75! The day ended with campfires and singing.
