The week of activities consisted of two home games for the Kenville Flyers hockey team, free public skating throughout the week, Zumba classes on Wednesday, lounge entertainment on Saturday, a Lucky Draw Auction, a Pancake Breakfast on Saturday morning (hosted by the Benito Childcare Centre) and Saturday night sit down banquet for all curlers and company, and a fabulous “pick-a-prize” for the lucky event winners.

Thank You to all our sponsors and donors, and thank you to everyone who came out to watch some curling.
