Drumheller to hoist Olympic Torch

olympic-run.jpgDrumheller is in limited company, as it became one of less than 200 communities across Canada, where the Olympic torch will make a stop on its way to the 2010 Winter Olympic Games in Whistler, British Columbia.
    Last Friday, an excited Mayor Bryce Nimmo and Economic Development officer Ray Telford delivered the word that Drumheller would be an official stop on the Olympic Torch Relay.  Drumheller Town Councillor Don Guidolin was also at the announcement as well as invited community stakeholders.
    “Just over two hours ago, the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Organizing Committee finalized the Olympic Torch Relay Route,” said a beaming Nimmo on Friday afternoon at Town Hall. “It gives me great pleasure to announce the Olympic Torch for the 2010 Olympics will make a stop in Drumheller.”
