Hadfield returned to earth on May 13th, and recently opened the Calgary Stampede, and addressed the nation from Ottawa during the Canada Day celebrations.
The Meaford Hospital Foundation is organizing Hadfield's speaking engagement in Owen Sound, and proceeds from this fundraising event will support the six Grey Bruce Health Services hospitals.
"We are extremely fortunate that Colonel Hadfield has agreed to come to Owen Sound. Only a small handful of people in the world have been to outer space, and Chris Hadfield went out of his way to share his experiences, and make people of all ages feel like they were right there with him, looking down on earth," said Dave Glass, Fundraising Chair of the Meaford Hospital Foundation.
