Thanks to everyone for coming out to the 2023 HCA Winter Carnival. In spite of the warm weather in recent weeks, the event was very successful. Ball Hockey on the Outdoor Rink was possible with the timely snowfall we received, and the Spaghetti Dinner and Pub Night at the Mess Hall was enjoyed by all.

Buttons will be for sale at the Huntley Community Centre on Saturday during the Winter Carnival. We’d love to see everyone showing their community spirit with an “I ‘love’ Carp” button!
Buttons are $10 each. 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.
