    Mayor Watson and Cumberland Ward Councillor Stephen Blais presented Co-Chairs Barry Irvine and Lyne Proulx, and Events Co-ordinators Stan Kowala and Bob Presland with framed certificates of the Mayor’s City Builder Award.

    The Navan for Kraft Hockeyville Committee undertook the challenge of promoting the Village of Navan in the Kraft Hockeyville 2011 competition as a valuable community-building process.

    People of all ages worked together towards a common goal, met new people, made new friends, reacquainted with old friends and worked together in a positive, fun endeavour for the betterment of all. As a result, community spirit, pride and cohesiveness is greatly enhanced.

    Local charities also benefited with donations going to the Cumberland Resource Centre Food Bank, CHEO and to a local special needs individual.
