Mayor’s Message TABLE OF CONTENTS The spring and summer seasons are upon us here in the Municipality of Meaford. Warm weather and cloudless skies welcome the emerging tree buds, reinvigorating our rolling countryside. Melting snow and ice make way for the calm, tranquil waters of our Georgian Bay waterfront, scattered with ripples of a promising fishing season. It’s the time of year to shed our layers and enjoy all of the natural beauty and community activities that Meaford has to offer.

The Recreation and Culture guide gives you the opportunity to explore and discover the variety of events and programs to get you reenergized and involved all spring and summer. Take in all that the municipality has to offer by adventuring outdoors through any of our parks and scenic trails, or by joining your friends and neighbours for our indoor activities.

The New Meaford Public Library Fundraising Campaign

The Municipality of Meaford and the Meaford Public Library have decided to create a larger, accessible and modern new library in the former Foodland building at 11 Sykes Street North. Over the past fifty years in its current location in the former Federal Post Office and Customs House on Trowbridge Street, the Meaford Public Library has experienced continuous growth. Books, magazines, DVDs, large print titles, audiobooks and more demand increased space; and visits to the library have increased steadily. Technology has also expanded with the library use of computers and Wi-Fi skyrocketing over the past decade. Attendance at adult and children’s programming has increased demand dramatically on the library system. In 2018, plans for the new Library began. The Meaford Public Library Fundraising Committee is coordinating the fundraising campaign. You can also donate in honour of someone else.

Creating our History TOGETHER The Meaford Museum was originally built in 1895 as the Town’s Pumping House. Later, it was turned into the Public Utilities Offices and finally, in 1961 after a sizable donation of historical memorabilia was received by the town, the building was turned into the Meaford Museum. Since that time, several renovations, additions and improvements have been made creating the new Meaford Museum as an interactive and exciting hub of local history. For more information and hours of operation visit www.meafordmuseum.ca EXPLORE the different rooms to learn about the families and business that helped shape our Municipality. The Meaford Museum gift shop has a wide variety of unique gift ideas made by local artisans.
