Vancouver Olympic Village
I am one lucky girl! I am Volunteering in the Vancouver Olympic Village this month, as a Workforce Communications Volunteer. Basically, this means I am producing a daily newsletter on-site, getting to meet so many wonderful people every day. The trek into town takes me about an hour and half each way, and I have worked 10 hour shifts, but I am having an absolute blast every time I am there! We are working hard to create a quiet "home" for all the athletes between their competitions. On Day 1 of the Olympics, two athletes burst out onto a high level balcony and shouted "Good morning Vancouver! Today is the FIRST day of the Olympics!" and gave each other a huge hug....
Woohoo! This is an amazing experience!!!!!
