Kincardine council is in full support of the bid to make this a Kraft Hockeyville community.

And all members of council are prepared to put their dress code to the test, as they will be wearing hockey jerseys at the regular meeting Feb. 19.

During the public forum portion of council Jan. 22, promoters of Kincardine for Kraft Hockeyville 2014, made a presentation to promote the project.

Greg Wilhelm of Zehrs Kincardine, one of the sponsors of the project, told council that the community has to come onboard to make this happen.

"We need hockey stories from the people of Kincardine," he said.

At present, people can post stories and photos on the Kincardine Hockeyville Facebook page. But more importantly, they must register under their community on the Kraft Hockeyville website.

Jackie Pawlikowski, executive director of the Kincardine and District Chamber of Commerce, urged people to click on the Kraft Hockeyville site and then locate the Kincardine community under "Davidson Centre Arena" and register.

People can post stories on the Kraft Hockeyville site as well - and be sure to "like" other stories under the "Davidson Centre Arena" community.

Voting on the Kraft Hockeyville site does not begin until March, with final voting on April 5.

Wilhelm said the top 16 towns in Canada - eight from the east and eight from the west - are selected, and then the top six from the west and top six from the east will each receive $25,000 toward arena upgrades.

The communities are then narrowed down to the top four, with each receiving $50,000 toward arena upgrades; and then the top two, with each receiving $100,000 in arena upgrades.

The grand prize winner also has the opportunity to host an NHL pre-season game and gets a visit from CBC.
