SUBMITTED BY GEOFF BOWES — Once a month, a group of writers come from their homes in Meaford, Markdale, Massie, Wiarton, and Kemble to meet in the spacious room that they have booked for a couple of hours at the Harmony Centre in Owen Sound. Observing the Centre’s COVID-19 guidelines, they share their works in progress, and exchange ideas with their peers. When their meeting is over, each of the seven members gives $3 to the Harmony Centre.
Their group is one of many who use this registered charity as a central meeting place. There are yoga classes and karate classes. The Georgian Bay Concert Choir, and the Georgian Bay Children’s Choir meet there too, as does Big Brothers Big Sisters of Grey Bruce. A dance instructor from Saugeen Shores coaches a gifted student from Meaford at this convenient midway point. There are many other groups coming together to create, educate, or just get stuff done in the variety of affordable spaces inside this beautiful old building.
For more information, and COVID-19 protocols visit the Harmony Centre website.

At South Grey News, we endeavour to bring you truthful up-to-date local community news in a quick and easy-to-digest format that’s free of political bias. We believe this service is more important today than ever before, as social media has given rise to misinformation, largely unchecked by big corporations who put profits ahead of their responsibilities.
South Grey News does not have the resources of a big corporation. We are a small, locally owned-and-operated organization. Research, analysis and physical attendance at public meetings and community events requires considerable effort. But contributions from readers and advertisers, however big or small, go a long way to helping us deliver positive, open and honest journalism for this community.
Please consider supporting South Grey News with a modest donation and let us know that our efforts are appreciated. Thank you.
