Where do I get my Button?

The Carp Winter Carnival is almost here (February 17 & 18)!

To attend the Winter Carnival, you’ll want an “I ‘love’ Carp” button!

Buttons will be for sale at the Huntley Community Centre on Friday and Saturday during the Winter Carnival.

Buttons are $10 each, and include admission to all the Winter Carnival events (e.g. community skate, bonfire, horse-drawn sleigh ride, etc.). We’d love to see everyone showing their community spirit with an “I ‘love’ Carp” button!

Proceeds from the buttons help fund Huntley Community Association activities, such as the Winter Carnival events!

Note – We suggest you keep your buttons after the Carnival, as they may give you a reduced admission to future events and activities.

How do I get a Spaghetti Dinner?

You must order your Spaghetti Dinner in advance, as there will be a limited number of meals prepared.

You can take your dinner home, or stick around for some music and to meet old and new friends at our Pub Night at the HCA Mess Hall, 2240 Craig Side Rd. Dancing, board games, music, and the pool table will be open for play.

It’s easy! Spaghetti dinner can be ordered for Saturday night (February 18) by completing the order form.

All orders come with garlic bread. Plates are $12.00 each.

Orders are for take-out or eat-in, at the HCA Mess Hall on Craig Side Road. Take-out hours start as early as 4:00PM, eat-in available after 5:00PM.

The deadline to place orders is Thursday, February 16 at noon.

Payment can be made at pick-up by cash, credit or debit.

Proceeds from this dinner help fund HCA community events, such as this year’s Carp Winter Carnival!
