Lumby residents take Hockeyville message on the road

Lumby residents took their campaign on the road over the weekend.

About 100 people landed at Friday’s Kelowna Rockets game in their green and gold Lumby jerseys in support of the village’s bid for Kraft Hockeyville.

“Children, parents and grandparents cheered along with arena announcer Brian Mack when they were asked to say, ‘Lumby Is Hockeyville,'” said Angie Clowry, a bid organizer.

A top-10 list of communities seeking the Hockeyville title from across Canada will be announced March 5.

Voting for the top-10 will then take place March 13 and 14 and two entries with the most votes will be announced as the finalists March 19.

Voting for the final two will run March 20 and 21 and the winner will be announced April 2. The winning community will receive $100,000 for upgrades to their local arena.
