Olympic Torch makes its way through Mission, BC, early Monday
As the Olympic Games are geared to move toward the Opening Ceremony on Friday, February 12th, the Olympic torch wound it's way through Mission, British Columbia this morning.
Despite the early hours, an enthusiastic crowd was present. The feeling you get when the torch passes by you is almost unbelievable.
Mission held a torch breakfast after the torch left town. This was a great community effort.
I got to hold the torch and was amazed at how heavy it is........this was a once in a lifetime experience!
