Not sure if everyone has heard the news yet, but our Century 21 Lanthorn Napanee office is an official Premier Sponsor for TANKARD 2010, the Ontario Men's Curling Championship! 10 teams from across Ontario will compete in the event, being held this year at the Strathcona Paper Centre in Napanee from February 1-7 and will be hosted by the Napanee and District Curling Club, Napanee Sports Association and the Town of Greater Napanee. Not only have agents from our Napanee office sponsored the event, but many from the office are also volunteering. Some even took part this past weekend, along with nearly 160 other volunteers in a mini bonspiel on the curling rink ice.
Curling has a long and rich history in the city of Napanee as people in the community began playing the sport on the Napanee River in the 1890's. Since then the Napanee & District Curling Club (which was formed in 1957 and incorporated in 1960 as a non-profit, membership owned club) has grown to include nearly 300 members.

Congratulations to Napanee's Century 21 Lanthorn team for kicking off 2010 as leaders in community involvement. Let's all follow their lead throughout the year.
