The annual undertaking by the local NOC saw several activities staged. One of the features was the three-day exhibition at the old Public Library.

The exhibition sought to enlighten the public on the Olympic Movement, as well as the various achievements and happenings at the local level.

Held for three days, the exhibition was deemed a success by NOC member Doris Mc Intosh, who was one of the resource persons.

In recounting the three days, Mc Intosh said the first day was a bit slow, but assessed that day two had the best attendance.

“We had groups from schools here…. Many persons just came off the street and viewed what we had on show,” Mc Intosh claimed.

She revealed that over the years, the NOC has been able to stock a collection of artefacts, photos and other materials, including literature on St Vincent and the Grenadines’ involvement in the Olympic movement.

Mc Intosh informed that the NOC has in its possession resource materials which are pertinent to students who are writing Physical Education for external examinations.

Mc Intosh revealed that each person who attended the exhibition was given an Olympic pin, a series of booklets on local sports personalities and other paraphernalia.

The week of activities saw a hype last Sunday at Layou, when several sporting events took place both at the Layou Playing Field and at Jackson Bay.

And at the end of the day, the Olympic Day Run around Layou took place.

At the end of the run, all participants were presented with the Olympic Day Participation Certificates and the MOVE, LEARN, DISCOVER leaflets.(RT)
