NOMINATE for the CARA Awards

If there is one thing that Clarenville is noted for in the rest of the province it is the fervor in which its sports teams take to the ice, the field, the Hill, the trail or the gym.  This does not happen by accident.  In fact it is the dedication of key volunteers in each sport that has made Clarenville athletes so dominant in their fields.  

The coordination of this tremendous pool of volunteer talent is embodied by the Clarenville Area Recreation Association – CARA.  Now in its 41st year, CARA is a an association of sport leaders and sports visionaries who work with The Town of Clarenville to help ensure that the right people with the right resources contribute to making organized recreation work and grow in this town (even more, they contribute greatly to the high quality of life that makes Clarenville such an attractive place to live and work).
  
Each year CARA celebrates its success (our success) with an Awards Night.  This year, CARA will be holding its Awards Night at the Clarenville Events Centre Theatre on Thursday, June 7th, 2012 at 7:30 pm.  Make an effort to get out and see it!
