Another Successful Year of Sunday Evening Concerts For Friends of the Library


The summer concert series organized by the Friends of the Meaford Library once again had a very successful season at the Meaford Rotary Harbour Pavilion. It was another great series of concerts held every Sunday evening.

This was the 19th year for the concert series and it is one of the major fund-raisers for the Friends of the Library. As always, the Friends attempted to bring you many of your favourites as well as a smattering of new faces. The concerts started at 7 p.m. and went as long as the performers were willing to entertain - remembering of course that all of them donated their time and talents to put on these concerts. The Friends are very, very grateful for the generosity of all these wonderful people.

Recycling Tips


Some additional information in response to a recent letter about blue box recycling in Meaford:

a. The Municipality of Meaford’s Blue Bin film plastic is definitely baled and sent to a company in the States for recycling.

b. When one ties off the clear plastic bag loaded with film plastic, use the bag ends themselves for the tying.

Frustration Over Delays on Bake Shop Bridge Project


These reasons given for the delays to the bridge rebuilding schedule are truly pathetic. They (senior staff and Council) may as well have said the the dog ate the drawings. Three reasons were given: rain delays, need to fabricate a special pipe hanger, and reacting to missing thrust blocks. There is no explanation whether these delays overlapped in any way only that days/weeks were lost because of each.

An outdoor project spanning months should have rain contingencies built into the schedule, this excuse is lame.
