The Chair of the opening and closing ceremonies at the Special Olympics National Summer Games in Antigonish, says they want athletes to feel this is their
home. Mary Farrell says a cairn is being built for the games made from stones from each province and territory. The stones are coming from former Antigonish residents, friends and family. Among former residents sending a stone is Yukon Premier Sandy Silver. Farrell says the idea of a Cairn came out of discussions on lighting the flame in the cauldron for the opening ceremonies of the games.
