The beginning of the Carolina Hurricanes' 20th Anniversary season is just days away, and City of Raleigh Mayor Nancy McFarlane is drumming up support for the hometown team.
The Mayor issued two proclamations, the first of which was made at the We Love the Hurricanes luncheon on Monday and dubbed this week in Raleigh "Carolina Hurricanes Week."
At Tuesday's bi-weekly city council meeting, which was attended by Canes ambassador Erik Cole, McFarlane issued a second proclamation to declare Friday, Oct. 6 as "Carolina Hurricanes Day," in which "residents and visitors in the greater Raleigh and Triangle region are encouraged to show their love and support of the team by wearing their Carolina Hurricanes colors to school and work."
