Huron United shut out

Huron United was defeated 3-0 in Guelph on Sunday.


It was the first loss of the season for Kincardine's mens soccer team. United went into the game having scored seven goals and allowed only a pair, but they couldn't find the net Sunday on the road.


The host squad, IST, knocked Huron United out of top spot in the SWRSA Premier League with the win.


The visitors did not turn in a bad performance, but were continually being pulled out of position by a fluid and skilled team. The United wasn't able to play its game, and the club was punished for it.

Impressed by downtown experience

My husband and I want to express our appreciation to the organizers and participants in Saturday’s World Fiddle demonstration in downtown Kincardine last weekend.


We had friends and family up at our cottage for the long weekend and on Saturday went into the downtown for some lunch and shopping. All our guests were impressed with so much about Queen Street - the flowers outside of stores, the variety of shopping, the cleanliness throughout the downtown, and then entertainment! Who would expect that?


Everyone responsible should be proud of their hard work to make shopping in downtown Kincardine such a special experience. We really appreciate it and intend to “shop local” as much as we can!
