The Torch has been Lit!
Here we come Kimberley/Cranbrook.
On Sunday June 17th, under sunny skies a good crowd gathered to celebrate the lighting of the torch for the Kimberley/Cranbrook 2018 55+ BC Games. The lighting of the torch officially acknowledges the beginning of the countdown to the Games.
Greetings from the community were heard from Ktunaxa Elder Dorothy Alpine, the Mayor of Kimberley, His Worship Don McCormack and the Mayor of Cranbrook, His Worship Lee Pratt, host society Joint Presidents Sandy Zeznik and Jaret Thompson, and BC Seniors Games Society President Cindy Simpson.
India Sherrit, local Olympian in Alpine skiing was the torch runner. She passed it to the Mayors of Kimberley and Cranbrook who jointly proceeded to light the Games Torch.
If you weren’t able to join in on the festivities the event was filmed and posted on Facebook.
