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!
