Students Display Support for Local Hockey Arena

Students and staff at Blackville School sported hockey jerseys on Thursday in support of the Tom Donovan Arena nomination in the Kraft Hockeyville challenge.

The arena is one of many in Canada competing in the challenge that awards $250, 000 and an NHL game to the first place winner and $25, 000 to three second place winners.

Arena supporters can join and promote their arena at the Kraft Hockeyville website. Sharing community stories about the arena on the website is one of the biggest ways to garner a higher score.

This week students were also encouraged to join the website and share their experiences at the arena through their own stories.
