Scarecrows Celebrate the Year of Sport

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.
