Do you Recognize the Sir John A MacDonald Mystery Window?

Meaford Museum Stained Glass 1  Meaford Museum Stained Glass 2

Meaford, Ontario – June 21, 2017 - Just in time for Canada's 150th Birthday, the Meaford Museum is looking for answers to a local Canadian mystery - How did a beautiful stained glass window of Sir John A. MacDonald, dating to the 1800's, end up in Meaford?

Museum staff received the window through a donation, but the history of the glass remains unknown. The window appears to be the only one of its type in existence in Canada, and museum staff have been unable to dig up any information on its history.

“We are hoping one of our local residents may recognize the window and know where it came from”, said Museum staff member Jen Simon. “It would be great to know more about such a unique and interesting piece”.

For a closer look at the Mystery Window, you can find it on display at the Meaford Museum. If you have any information on its history or origins, please get in touch at 519-538-5974, or email jsimon@meaford.ca.

Military Tank is Coming to Meaford for Canada 150

leopard LAV

Meaford, Ontario – June 19, 2017 – The 4th Canadian Division Training Centre (4 CDTC) will be providing a little (or big) something extra at this year’s Canada Day Celebrations in Meaford.

This year on July 1st, the 4 CDTC will be holding a Freedom of the City parade in the Meaford downtown core. Along with the ranks of soldiers, a Leopard 2A4 Battle Tank and LAV 6.0 will make their way up Sykes Street, then remain on display at Market Square for the remainder of the day.

Weighing in at over 55 tonnes, The Leopard 2A4 tank is a heavy armoured, main battle tank. It was developed for the German ground forces and is the primary Main Battle Tank of several NATO countries. It is almost 10 meters long, and is outfitted with a smooth bore gun, two machine guns, and multi-barrel grenade dischargers.

The Light Armoured Vehicle (LAV) 6.0 is the upgraded model of the LAV 3.0. It offers a Double-V Hull, provides Canadian troops with protection from mine and IED threats, and is powered by a 450hp engine.

“Our military history is so important in Meaford”, said Mayor Barb Clumpus. “The former ‘tank range’ is a local landmark, and we are so grateful for all they do for our community and our country. I am thrilled to be part of the Freedom of the City ceremony, and I can’t wait to see this impressive equipment up-close.”

“The 4th Canadian Division Training Centre is proud to celebrate the 150th Anniversary of Canada with the Municipality of Meaford.” Said Lieutenant-Colonel Christian D. Lillington, Commanding Officer. “Soldiers of the Canadian Armed Forces will be available throughout the day to interact with visitors and answer their questions. We look forward to meeting the public and sharing the celebration of our great country. This parade is a unique opportunity for the members of the 4th Canadian Division Training Centre to connect with Meaford due to our long and treasured relationship.”

The parade will begin at 10:30am on Saturday, July 1st in downtown Meaford.
