The Meaford Day Away Program runs Tuesday – Friday, and sees approximately 21 clients per day. Our program is located at the Meaford Hospital. The Day Away Program is a community program that provides socialization and medical monitoring for adults, as well as respite for caregivers.

Recently we received a donation from the Meaford Apple Harvest Craft Show Committee to purchase a large Smart TV for our program space. This benefits our clients in so many ways and we are grateful to the Committee for considering our agency when donating to their community.

Doubt About Pledge to Plant Two Billion Trees


It sure is a catchy headline for the Liberals to say they are going to plant two billion trees over 10 years!

I would like to ask Michael Den Tandt, the Liberal Candidate for Bruce-Grey-Owen Sound, how the Liberals are going to execute this. This sounds like more fake news election promises, because this will require planting roughly 22,000 thousand trees every hour, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, for 10 years. This is supposed to be achieved with the help of seasonal workers.

Rick Harrison, Meaford
