Scarecrows Celebrate the Year of Sport
His Excellency the Right Honourable David Johnston, Governor General of Canada, has proclaimed 2015 as the “Year of Sport” in Canada. Meaford has a strong sporting tradition so the Scarecrows are celebrating this tradition and current sportsmanship in Meaford. We have a lot to celebrate.
The “Year of Sport” proclamation celebrates the role sport plays in our Canadian identity. “From our local playgrounds, to recreational sport leagues all the way to our inspiring high performance athletes, sport is vital to the cultural fabric of our nation.”
Throughout 2015, there will be 60+ international sport events being hosted in Canada including the FIFA Women’s World Cup in June/July and the Toronto 2015 Pan and Parapan American Games.
Celebrate with us! Be inspired! Get moving! Get playing! The Scarecrows athletes will be invading in September!
