Live Games at Touchstones

From Feb. 12 to March 21, the lobby of Touchstones Nelson will be transformed into an Olympic/Paralympic Live Site.

Television coverage of Olympic events will be shown in the lobby of Touchstones Nelson during regular public hours for anyone who wants to drop in and check out the action.

The Olympic/Paralympic Live Site Program was developed in the years leading up to the Winter Olympics with the goal of helping British Columbians unleash the true spirit of B.C. in 2010.

The OPLS Program supported projects that built a lasting legacy of opportunity and achievement by providing up to $330,000 in funding for projects with budgets under $1 million, in communities outside of Greater Vancouver and the Whistler-Squamish corridor.
