Quest going strong

Dear editor:

The quest for Atikokan to become Kraft Hockeyville 2006 is alive and in full force. The community of Atikokan has been working very hard to ensure the hopes and dreams of our hockey fanatics in the community and region come true.

I would like to take this opportunity to invite you and members of your community to participate in a hockey celebration this Saturday (May 13). This festival will feature a downtown celebration, including a parade, children’s games, and a barbecue.

Please encourage all in your community to attend. If they require further information, contact

Secondly, without the continued support of the surrounding communities, Atikokan would have not been able to advance into the latter stages of this competition. For that support, we thank you.

Without the friendly competition and camaraderie between our communities, the passion for the sport of hockey would not be as strong.

We welcome you to send letters of support in response to Atikokan’s quest to be named Hockeyville 2006. Examples of letters could be stories of rivalries, competitions, and friendships that have formed because of the great game of hockey.

Or write about what makes Atikokan and the northwest special, and why we deserve the title Kraft Hockeyville 2006.

Thank you,

Nicole Halasz

Atikokan, Ont.
