Well, the results are in and Guelph didn’t make it to the top 10. But we always said that win or lose, we have a lot to be proud of because this campaign brought our community together in an incredible way.
The real prize in this contest was the sharing of stories. And share you did. From tales of learning to skate on an outdoor rink, to memories of huddling by the heaters watching your kids play at Exhibition Arena, it’s clear that love of hockey and community is alive and well in Guelph.
Special thanks to Mike Nelson and his wife Renee, the community heroes behind Guelph’s Hockeyville bid. They got the whole city talking about it – and brought us together in the process!
