Winner Susan Stone was away so her son, Joel, accepted the draw prize from Denise Bacon and Kathy Rowe.

By Denise Bacon

Congratulations to Susan Stone! She won the 2024 Memberships Special Prize Draw made at Winterfest on January 27, 2024.

­Susan has lived in the Centennial Community for over 30 years and has been a member of CCRA for a long time. “I’m excited to have won,” said Susan. She continued, “Thanks for the prize. I believe the real prize is the local CCRA newspaper. With the demise of the Metro Group of newspapers it is harder to get community-based information.  I love the features on local heros, new businesses and community events like yours.”

The prize basket worth well over $300 was put together by CCRA volunteers with much gratitude to the following donors:

Andrew J. Abbate, The Elite Realty Group 
candlesandplams cafe
Centennial Community and Recreation Association (CCRA)
Jeannie Laverock, RE/MAX Hallmark Realty Ltd
Jill’s Team, Royal LePage Signature Realty 
JSC Home Improvements
Mark’s Pizzas
Mr. Beans Coffee Co.
Rich Coffee Co.
Sophia Tan, RE/MAX Rouge River Realty Ltd
And a generous resident who wanted to remain anonymous

This was the first time CCRA offered a large prize incentive to residents to join CCRA as members and the campaign was a tremendous success. Thank you to the hundreds of residents who renewed or purchased new memberships to date. Membership with CCRA is a hugely valuable means for residents to support the community. Residents are encouraged to join their neighbours as members of CCRA.
