The Pan Am Torch Relay is Coming to Meaford - June 11

Meaford, Ontario – June 4, 2015 – Come join us on June 11th, 2015 to celebrate the Pan Am Games torch relay as it passes through our community. The celebration will begin at 3:30 at Bill’s Valu Mart in Meaford, where you will be able to see the Pan Am flame arrive on its way from Collingwood. Refreshments and merchandise will be available, with the official ceremony starting at 4:00pm.

The Pan Am flame will then be carried by Barb and Elizabeth McDonald to the Harbour Pavilion where it will be transferred to Hannah Woodhouse, Meaford’s official community torchbearer. Hannah has participated in and won many competitions, including a National Indoor Track Champion Title in the 3000m and 1500m. Hannah also participated in the Canadian Junior Cross Country Championships held in Vancouver, BC, and represented Canada at the 2015 World Junior Cross Country Championships in Guiyang, China. Thank you to all of our torchbearers for their participation in this event.

The Municipality of Meaford is very proud to be part of this historic journey, and we look forward to showing off our Meaford spirit!
