Show your spirit North Shore
The goal of the North Shore Spirit of B.C., which is supported by 2010 Legacies Now and B.C. government, is to “ignite pride community spirit in those living and working on the North Shore in the build up to and during the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Games, to give residents and visitors an experience to remember, and to maximize the benefits for the North Shore Community.”
More than 95 communities across B.C. have Spirit of B.C. Committees.
Already, North Shore residents are enjoying 2010-inspired legacies like the North Shore Spirit Trail, a 35-kilometre that will connect Horseshoe Bay to Deep Cove and Spirit Corner Mural by artist Jane Clark at 67 Mahon Ave. in North Vancouver.
To help cheer on Canadian athletes, The North Shore Spirit Committee has created North Shore Spirit Bear Bells.
Available across the North Shore, the noise-makers have three bells per band, symbolizing the three communities and mountains on the North Shore.
“What we are going to do is take 12,000 of these bells and we are going to flood the North Shore with them,” Doug Smith, chair of the North Shore Spirit Committee, told The Outlook.
