Don't Close Grey Gables


This letter has been sent to Warden Barfoot and Grey County Council.

Unfortunately, the County of Grey has made a decision to close Grey Gables. This decision has so many people in our county upset, that the Past Wardens are now being approached by the 100's of people from Grey County and beyond, to try and have this decision reconsidered in favour of the status quo. The public has questions:

  • Has the country sought expression of interest to see if there is interest from the private sector to purchase Grey Gables?

  • If you are building a new facility, what will happen to the existing Rockwood Terrace building?

  • Why move a facility from the centre of the County, where it already owns approximately 45 acres of land, to a facility in a different community, where it would have to purchase more property?

  • Why has redevelopment of Rockwood Terrace not been costed as the County did with Lee Manor?

Meaford Community Gardens Hoping For Return of Tool Bag

Dear editor,

It is with great frustration that I write this letter. This past weekend, someone lifted a tool bag containing two cordless power drills (orange & black RIGID drills) and other tools from the hoop greenhouse and a number of watering cans from the Georgian Bay Community School Community Garden. If whomever took these items can please return them where they found them, that would be greatly appreciated.

The Meaford Community Gardens network is a volunteer-driven organization, with over 20 volunteers, which provides space for people to grow food at a number of locations around the town of Meaford. Gardens are located at Georgian Bay Community School, St. Vincent Euphrasia School, Victoria Village and raised beds in front of the Church of the Nazarene and beside the Meaford Public Library.

Remembering Meaford


It is exciting to be a current resident of Ottawa during Canada’s 150th year celebrations. There are so many events happening here.

This year in September I am celebrating my 70th birthday. I can’t help reminiscing about my beautiful hometown of Meaford. I was born in Meaford in 1947 and graduated from Meaford Elementary School and Meaford District High School.

Thank you to the elementary and high school teachers in Meaford during the 1950s and 1960s.These teachers instilled a love of learning in us. I hope my fellow classmates reached great heights in life. I do remember you all.
