Between the 2009 Year in Review at the Aulstville Theatre in St. Lawrence College on Friday at 7AM, and The Olympic Torch Relay which comes through Cornwall Ontario tomorrow at noon in Lamoureux Park people will be buzzing.

Graham Greer will be performing and there will be all sorts of entertainment and festivities.

About the Torch Relay

torchrelayThe Vancouver 2010 Olympic Torch Relay is a 106-day celebration that started in Victoria, British Columbia on October 30, 2009. The Olympic Flame will travel over 45,000 kilometres across Canada making it the longest domestic relay in Olympic history. Over the course of the relay, 12,000 torchbearers will have the opportunity to carry the Olympic Flame.

“One of the most inspiring ways to get involved in the Olympic experience as it sweeps across Canada is to help escort that magnificent Olympic Flame,” said John Furlong, Chief Executive Officer of the Vancouver Organizing Committee for the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games (VANOC). “Everyday Canadians have the opportunity to sign up to become Olympic Torchbearers and have the experience of a lifetime.”
