Your Support Has Changed Lives!

Dear Editor and the community,

Over the last year, your generous support of the Meaford Refugee Welcome Group has changed the lives of a new family in the Meaford community. This would not have been possible without you. Thank you!

The Meaford Refugee Welcome Group was formed just over a year ago when a group of people was moved by the stories of harrowing journeys people were forced to take, fleeing the violence in their homeland. Our goal was to help bring a refugee family from Syria to Meaford.

As a result of the significant support the Meaford Refugee Welcome Group received from many people - through their very generous contributions of time, resources, and donations – we were able to achieve our financial goal very quickly.

Library Services for All

Dear Sir,

I'm sure I speak for most of my Sydenham neighbours in wanting only good things for our fellow citizens in the Town of Meaford, including having access to high quality library services like we have been enjoying since 1994 as founding members of the Owen Sound and North Grey Union Public Library.

However, you will not get the library services you want by allowing your library board to deprive your Sydenham neighbours their access to such services. If you and Meaford Council allow the recent decision of the Meaford Library Board to stand (cancelling the contract with the Union Library), you will not only further erode Meaford's reputation as a municipal partner, but you will be harshly judged by your Sydenham neighbours.
