You could feel the tension inside the Clarenville Events Centre tonight.  Over 250 people packed the hall to hear a 3 second announcement. Here's what it looked like:

After an all-nighter of voting and the dedicated support of many-many people and businesses CLARENVILLE won the Kraft Celebration Tour match-up! Final vote count: 385,717 votes for Clarenville to 354,727 for for Canning, NS. For two "small" towns that's a lot of community spirit in both!

Elizabeth Swan Memorial Park will now be awarded $25,000 by Kraft foods to help make improvements.  

TSN SportsCentre will also broadcast live from Clarenville on August 18th! 

This was a huge community building effort that literally extended across the country - thank you all for your active involvement in making it such a success.  If you don't live in Clarenville please visit - and make sure you stop by the park that you will help improve.

Emcee - Councillor Rod Nicholl

Mayor Fred Best

Chair - Jill Monk

There is always more to follow...
