You heard grade 5 student Marina Guthrie-Drew and
grade 3 student Maria Gilbert. Both had a chance to carry the torch at Lennoxville Elementary school yesterday afternoon - and each represented a different province or territory that will participate in the Games. The event hits close to home for these students - Lennoxville will be hosting a number of the Games events this summer, mostly on the Bishop's University campus.
