Southwest residents are being asked to make some noise on Thursday in support of the 2010 Winter Olympic and Paralympic Games.
Thursday will begin the one-year countdown towards the start of the 2010 Olympics in Vancouver, and residents from coast-to-coast are being asked to "Make Some Noise" as part of a national initiative to celebrate the Olympics.
At 6 p.m. on Thursday, Southwest residents are encouraged to be part of the wave of noise that will roll across the country through each time zone. Each part of the country is making noise at 6 p.m. local time to voice their support.
"So whether you're in the car driving home from work, at the arena with the kids, or at home around the supper table - honk your horn, yell out a cheer, applaud wildly, 'Make Some Noise!'" a city press release stated.
The countdown is also on for Swift Current to host an appearance of the 2010 Olympic Flame on Jan. 10. The Swift Current Olympic Torch Relay Community Task Force will be offering many opportunities for community members to get involved in those celebrations - ranging from cheering on the torch runners, performing on stage, to being a local Olympic volunteer for the day.
Area residents can also show their Olympic spirit by signing up to be an Olympic torchbearer through www.icoke.ca or www.rbc.com/carrythetorch.
