Vote for Summerland’s Hockeyville

I would like to thank the many businesses and Summerlanders that have helped our community qualify for the Hockeyville contest.

Dear Editor:

I would like to thank the many businesses and Summerlanders that have helped our community qualify for the Hockeyville contest. This national contest has three rounds. The first round is completed.

This Saturday, March 3, on CBC’s Hockey Night in Canada, an announcement will be made on which Canadian communities qualify for the next round.

If Summerland qualifies for the next round, it places our community on the national state. The contest then becomes very competitive between communities. To win the next round is determined solely on the number of votes a community receives. Last year the community of Bentley, Alta., population 1,000, was able to get in excess of 200,000 votes. (Google “Hockeyville”).

We need all of the community, schools and businesses involved. Social networking (Facebook) is a great way of getting a lot of votes. Getting friends to vote outside the province or even outside the country is permissible.

Voting is for only three days: March 4 to 6.

Go Summerland!

Andrew Verge, Chair

Summerland Hockeyville Committee
