After some last minute changes due to severely cold weather, the Dryden Olympic Torch celebration was held in the DHS Gymnasium today.

The torch relay started at 2:30 at the top of the underpass, with various community members handing off the torch until it got to Michelle Arseneault, the final torch bearer. Michelle ran the torch down Casimir Ave and into a packed DHS gymnasium, where she lit the Olympic Cauldron.

The DHS gymnasium was jammed with spectators throughout the event, which featured performances by local musicians, singers and dancers.

A big congratulations goes out to all members of the Dryden Olympic Torch Planning committee. Thanks to all of the members of the Olypic Torch Relay team for bringing the torch to Dryden.

Congratulations Michelle, and Go Canada!
