Today marks the start of the Vancouver 2010 Olympics. Most Canadians have been swept up in the exuberance that the Olympic Torch Relay has generated. Today the Olympic flame will complete its 106 day journey, which has taken it through over 1,000 communities in this vast country, which is Canada. Now the fun and the excitement really starts.
Naturally one of the most important symbols of our Canadian heritage will be on show. The RCMP Musical Ride is appearing as part of the Surrey 2010 Celebrations at Holland Park from Saturday, Feb 13th to Feb 28th (no shows on Monday or Tuesday).
To remind you of the excitement of this Musical Ride, check out the following short video.
If you would like a momento of one of the most memorable Canadian treasures, there is an exquisite poster of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police Musical Ride on sale at the Surrey event in the RCMP store. All proceeds go to Valley Therapeutic Equestrian Association (VTEA), which provides therapeutic riding for special needs children. The commemorative poster celebrates the 2009 BC Tour of the RCMP Musical Ride
The poster is 14″ x 18″ and VTEA will receive all funds generated . There are copies that have been autographed by members of the Musical Ride and these are on sale for $25. Non-autographed copies are available for $20.
What could be a better souvenir of all the excitement that all Canadians are sharing at this time.
