Description

Relive the excitement of the 2010 Vancouver Olympic Winter Games by joining us to hear Dave Doroghy recall stories about the Olympic Torch Relay

In 2018 the City of Vancouver Archives began the process of making images of the 2010 Olympic Torch Relay available online (https://www.vancouverarchives.ca/2018/10/11/2010-olympic-torch-relay-photographs-now-available/). The Olympic Torch Relay started on October 30, 2009 in Victoria, BC, and travelled 45,000 km, across all thirteen provinces and territories, terminating in Vancouver 106 days later. Dave Doroghy, who spent almost four months on the road as a Shuttle Bus Host, will speak about the logistics of the relay and about the thousands upon thousands of people from every corner of the country, who participated in the relay throughout Canada.

Light refreshments served after presentation. Funds raised support the work of the City of Vancouver Archives, including making images from its photographic holdings available online.

Additional donations welcomed. Charitable receipts issued for donations over $25.
