We are pleased to announce our summer 2014 brochure is ready and distribution has begun.  You can expect it to come in your local Metroland paper Thursday, May 8th; you may also pick it up in person at Meaford Hall (or after mid-next week at most brochure racks in the area).  We plan to make a pdf version available for download through meafordhall.ca and of course all of the summer season information is already live on the website in our events section.  Feel free to share it with anyone you think might be interested!
