Municipal Support For Children’s Programs?


I began Meaford Summer Arts, a children's art camp, 13 years ago with the help of volunteers and the free use of Meaford Hall. This summer the Hall would cost the camp over $750 for the use of the Terrace Room and kitchen for FIVE HALF DAYS.

What a shock to see the Beautiful Joe Heritage Society be offered office space rental for $1,800 for a WHOLE YEAR. Let’s be fair!

Thank you to the Church of Christ for offering our non-profit child-based group the use of their facility for $100.

It Takes a Community to Rebuild an Opera House


On Saturday, May 6, many of us attended a special evening at our beautiful Meaford Hall. It was to celebrate the 'Balcony Grand Re-opening Ceremony'.

I want to thank and compliment the Meaford Hall and Cultural Foundation for completing this balcony seating project. It is well done and is a real asset to our hall. If I have any complaints about that evening, it would be that every time something was mentioned about 'The Hall' it was as if the conversion of the old 'Opera House' was strictly due to the efforts of the Meaford Hall and Cultural Foundation. That is very disappointing for a lot of people in Meaford and vicinity who successfully helped to run the Georgian Theatre Festival in repertory for a total of ten years… and then not receive even an 'honourable mention' at the final completion of this project!

Concern About Attracting Visitors & New Residents

Dear Sir,

Recently I attended a luncheon where the guests of honour were former long-time Meaford residents. They were visiting with the possible intention of returning to Meaford to live here permanently. However, they were shocked with the present state of urban Meaford, namely the derelict buildings, pot-holed roads, and empty stores. Needless to say, they will not be residing in Meaford in the future.

Another friend commented that the main street in the town of Meaford was 'bookended' by two abandoned buildings and yet another acquaintance complained about the impression that the town's terrible roads had on tourists.
