The Greater Brandon, Greater Tampa, North Tampa Bay, Plant City, South Tampa and Temple Terrace Chambers of Commerce have declared Friday Lightning Appreciation Day.

The chambers want to recognize the team for its accomplishments this season, which include winning the Atlantic Division, earning the top seed in the Eastern Conference and advancing to the conference final, where it fell to the Washington Capitals in seven games.

The chambers ask that those in the community wear blue on Friday and post pictures on social media using the hashtag #AppreciateBolts.
