Fall fairs are ingrained in Grey County's history. Most still celebrate the season the way it has been done for well over a century in rural Ontario, with livestock and trained animal shows; bake-offs; fruit, vegetable, flower and preserve contests; parades; quilt and art shows; farm equipment displays; BBQ dinners and live entertainment.
Grey Bruce Health Services recognizes the uniqueness and diversity of the people and communities we serve. As we celebrate Canada 150, we would like to honour that diversity by hosting our first juried art exhibit: Momentos - a medley of Canadian moments. We are calling on all artists to create a piece of art, and to submit it along with a short story reflecting your 'Canadian Moment'. A jury will select the pieces to be displayed throughout the six GBHS hospitals for one year, for all to enjoy! A commemorative booklet will be created as a keepsake of this celebration, and a reminder of the healing power of art. (The six hospital locations are: Lion’s Head, Markdale, Meaford, Owen Sound, Southamtpon and Wiarton)
