The organizers of Lawrencetown
Hockeyville 2010 would like to express their gratitude and thanks to
who participated in a tremendous effort to capture the CBC Kraft
Hockeyville crown this year!
Individuals, businesses, schools, organizations and government
came together in a tremendous effort that generated a gigantic 723,571
votes for the Lawrencetown bid; an extraordinary amount of support for
this small village in the heart of Nova Scotia’s beautiful Annapolis
We were overwhelmed by the support of individuals who shared
their stories and memories of our little community rink, and the
family of supporters from around the world who were touched by the
of a small village to maintain a place for their children, a place
by dedicated community volunteers here forty years ago.
We cannot fully express how much the loving support from all
and from far away, has energized and touched us. Achieving the
fourth in the country, with a tiny population of 690 at the core of
effort, was a spectacular feat that we are all very proud to have
with our children. Our young people have seen what great things can be
accomplished when we all believe, and work, together. That is why we
like the winners today.
We were blessed to meet some wonderful people from Kraft
CBC this past weekend during our celebrations at the rink. Rob and
Mathieu, we are indebted to you for your great sense of humour and the
enthusiasm you brought to your visit. To ALL of the CBC crew,
our celebrities, thank you for the kind way in which you entered our
village and how much you enjoyed your time with us.
To all our supporters, we extend our gratitude to you, as you
your hearts to us. Our work, and our journey continue forward, as we
the next page in the life of our community.
