The Olympic spirit is alive and well in Abbotsford!!

The Olympic torch arrived in Abbotsford last night. We managed to catch up to it in the last hour before it entered Rotary Stadium. It passed by on the street, and them we saw it again as it came around the block and was brought down into the stadium by the second to last torchbearer.

Larry and I (waving at the camera) are standing in the background.

Larry carries his own torch:)

The exchange is made, and Gerry Swan, a local sports celebrity, carries the torch on a lap around the track bearing his name.
An estimated 20,000 people were there to greet the flame, and watch the community cauldron being lit.

The entertainment continues. I was happy to see such great local support for the torch relay.
