The Meaford Chamber of Commerce has been an active sponsor of the Invasion for many years. The office is often a hub of scarecrow activity in the autumn. Meaford Chamber of Commerce was established in 1897. Its mandate – “The Meaford Chamber of Commerce shall be the voice of business and the catalyst through which business, professional people, and community groups work together for the common good and economic prosperity of the Municipality of Meaford.” The Meaford Chamber of Commerce demonstrates this mandate through their support of the Invasion as well as their support for other community organizations and businesses. The fall season closes with a premier Chamber Event – Dragon’s Den Meaford in October.
