They came and they Krafted

Our Hockeyville Kraft Night on January 24th was a HUGE success!  We had lots of young crafters who were ready to get their hands dirty, and we were joined by a few fantastic team members from the Carleton Place Canadians!

We made some crazy goalie masks and everyone got to design their own hockey jersey as well!  Our hockey players did a fantastic job helping the kids to create their “krafts”. No one went home without a handful of projects, including the hockey players themselves!

We’d love to thank the members of the Carleton Place Canadians who took an hour out of their schedules to come and be with us.  Not only did they learn the kids’ names, they didn’t even hesitate to get out of their comfort zones and get creative with us!  It was a very fun evening and we hope it’ll help towards our goal of making Carleton Place Kraft Hockeyville 2012!

A BIG thanks to Brodie Barrick, Shayne Morrissey, Luke Martin, Luke Edwards and Jessica Smith for helping us out. Go Carleton Place!

Tuesday is Hockeyville Kraft Night!

It’s a big day for us!  We’re hosting our own little event in support of the Carleton Place bid to become Kraft Hockeyville!  There’s only about another week left until all of the entries have to be in, so we’re looking forward to tonight so that we can finally post some great pictures to our town’s Kraft Hockeyville page! (If you haven’t signed up to be a member of our “team”, you can still visit the Kraft Hockeyville page and join us.  The more members we have, the better.)  And while you’re there, upload a few pictures or a story about your experiences with hockey in Carleton Place.  We know there are tons of hockey moms and dads out there….show your support, and help us earn our way into the Kraft Hockeyville title!

But getting back to Hockey Kraft Night, we’ll be joined by several members of the Carleton Place Canadians!  Yes, even hockey players like to do crafts, and they’ll be along to surprise our group of young crafters and help us make some wonderful items to take home.  (Oh, and there might be cake……)  We’ll have plenty of great photos to post later this week, and we’ll pop some video and stills onto the Kraft Hockeyville website to help boost our standings.

We’ll keep you posted!

It’s almost Hockey Kraft Night!

Cue the Hockey Night in Canada theme music…..our “Kraft” night is almost here!  We’ve got lots of fun things planned for Tuesday, January 24th…from crafts to games to major snackage! And there will definitely be a few special guests to help us with our creativity.

We’ve still got a few spaces left, so if you know someone between the ages of 6 – 12 who would like to join our event in support of Kraft Hockeyville 2012, call us and sign them up! We’ll be posting pictures on the Kraft Hockeyville site to help further our entry into the contest, so be a part of our effort and come out for a fun evening!

Hockeyville “Kraft” Night at the library!

To join in the fun on the bid for Carleton Place to become Kraft Hockeyville 2012, we’re having a Hockeyville “Kraft” night at the library!  Kids from ages 6 – 12 are welcome to sign up for a fun evening of hockey “Krafts”, puzzles, games and more!  There might even be a few very special guests to help us out!! (Just a hint….they’re not playing that night, but they are Canadians…….)

If you don’t know about the exciting endeavor, you can drop by the Kraft Hockeyville website to sign up and “JOIN” our community of Carleton Place, in an effort to become this year’s Kraft Hockeville community!  The winning community will get $100,000 in arena upgrades from Kraft Canada, an NHL pre-season game played at the local arena, NHL open team practices and a special Hockey Night in Canada broadcast on CBC.  Sounds like fun, doesn’t it?  But Carleton Place needs LOTS more people to sign up and upload photos, stories or videos about the hockey experience in Carleton Place. 

If you know a young person who would like to come to our Kraft Night from 7 – 8pm on Tuesday, January 24th…please drop in or call us at 257-2702 to register.  Hurry…spaces are limited and this is going to be a popular event! Go Carleton Place!

We ARE Hockeyville!

As some of you might know, Carleton Place is in the running for the  Kraft Hockeyville contest! It’s a wonderful initiative by the people at Kraft to support communities across Canada with fabulous hockey spirit! The winning community gets a host of great prizes, including $100,000 in arena upgrades, an NHL pre-season game played at their local arena, NHL open team practices and a special broadcast of Hockey Night in Canada on the CBC, direct from the winning town’s arena!

As a community with enormous spirit, we’re hoping to earn the title of Kraft Hockeyville this year, but Carleton Place can’t do it without your support! Why not hop over to the Hockeyville website, sign up and “Join” our community.  It’s easy, free and only takes a couple of minutes. Once you’re signed up, you can upload photos that celebrate hockey in our community (photos from the Arena are MUCH in demand), and take part in all the “missions” that are assigned.  But the main thing is to just sign up and join Carleton Place. With your support, we can SO do this!

You can sign up using your email, through Facebook or Twitter and get going! We’ve qualified a a community so far, but there’s plenty more to do.  Watch for community activities in the next few months that will support the effort!
