Well guys - it's Throwback Thursday - and what better way to "celebrate" it then to post some cool pics that will bring back lots of memories for the residents in the City of Swift Current?

5 years ago this coming Saturday, on January 10th, 2010... the City of Swift Current played host to one of 189 Community Celebrations with the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Torch Relay. In a very interesting turn of events, I was actually working for the Organizing Committee for the Vancouver Olympics and assigned to be the Olympic representative at the celebration in... you guessed it, Swift Current!

So, to honor this upcoming anniversary on Saturday, I went through some of my personal photo archives to share with you my memories of that beautiful day in Swift Current. A chinook rolled through town and the temperature on the day of the event was +6 degrees - a little bit nicer than it has been lately!

I shared some of these pictures with my former colleagues and the MC for the event, Randy Ferguson (who has been a venue announcer at not only Vancouver but in London for the Summer Olympics as well) had this to say about the event in Swift Current, and having the opportunity to share the stage with Premier Brad Wall: "It was a privilege and an honor to be the emcee and meet such a nice man and family!"

So even though I am still reasonably "new" to this community - I wanted to share with you the impact this event had on my life - so much so that I made the move here 4 years after the event was finished.

Happy anniversary!
