An afternoon of family fun

On Saturday, December 9, approximately 250 staff, students, faculty, alumni, Board of Governor members and their families joined President Samy Mahmoud at the Carleton University Ice House to participate in the second annual Family Holiday Skate.

The Carleton community showed their caring spirit by donating more than 220 kilograms of food to the Carleton Food Centre. Ravens hockey players volunteered their time to teach young and old alike how to enjoy a truly Canadian winter pastime.

Free beavertails, hot chocolate and a draw for movie passes by President Mahmoud concluded the fun-filled day.

Max Vaillant of the Carleton Raven’s women’s hockey team says, “The family skate was really well put together. The food and the drinks were awesome! The families were having such a great time that it made me very proud to be a part of the event. They were all smiling, giggling and very willing to be directed by us. I had a blast.”

Thank you to the following members of the Ravens hockey teams for assisting with the skating lessons:

Ryan Quinn, Tom MacDonald, Dan Hyde, Coulson Roberts, Jay Griffiths, Matt Silliker, Jeremy Silburt, Michael Wallace, Maxime Vaillant, Amanda Muhlig, Alexandra Palm, Val Charbonneau, Mel Bimm, Jessica Bradley, Carly Snell and Liane Quenneville.
