“Today The Meeting Place is a ‘Community Hub’, located in the village of Tobermory at the northern tip of the Bruce Peninsula. Its fulfilling its vision as an accessible space for community use and meeting diverse needs. The ‘hub’ model brings together people; doing things like building a community park, leading children and youth programs, hosting music and arts events and sharing a meal at community kitchens.”
