Pitching in to get Ready for Company
Canada Summer Games – Eyes of the Nation program invites community to help with Games preparation. With just two months to the 2017 Canada Summer Games, organizers and volunteers are calling on the community to help prepare its host cities for the arrival of 4,000 athletes and coaches, and 20,000 visitors this summer. The community initiative, entitled Eyes of the Nation, aims to leverage the Games to build a positive image of Winnipeg, Gimli, and Kenora in the hearts and minds of all Canadians—and in the process ignite a renewed sense of pride in the community.
“The eyes of the nation will be on Winnipeg during our city’s biggest event since we hosted the 1999 Pan Am Games,” said Hubert Mesman,” Co-chair of the Games’ Host Society. “Together, we want to offer visitors an amazing experience, from our vibrant attractions and cultural scene to our beautiful surroundings and friendly people.”
