Day 30 and 31, Montague to Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island

 Day 30. The day started with a medal bearer breifing at the school in Cardigan, P.E.I, population of less than 500

Jake givin the thumbs up to the signs the kids made for the arrival of Rick Hansen.

aint it the truth

Just a small group of difference makers today.

The school has been waiting a while, apparently they even had a float in the local parade in July in honor of Rick's visit

The kids put so much effort into their signs

The fire dept made an appearance as well

Rick arrives, now the wait for the medal bearer

You inspire us rick hansen!

Aw cmon, hand made hats and medals, adorable!

Today Jake and I used the wheel chair accessible honda odyssey as our shuttle

Later on in the day, in Charlottetown, I helped with another medal bearer breifing at city hall, built in 1888

around the corner was the fire department, they had this classic on display

I used the honda again to transport the medal bearers, the fellow in the front was a real inspirtation , he was very positive even though he has a vision impairment, and just recently lost his leg to cancer.

Saint Dunstan's university building in Charlottetown

Still trying to find the history on this church in Charlottetown, outta time!

Looking out on Northumberland Strait

Everyone wants a shot of Rick

The town council in Charlottetown had Rick re-sign the city registar, which he originally signed 25 years ago when he wheeled though on his man in motion tour

Another powerful and motivational speech

Day 31 was spent with Mike Clarabut, (shown here). He is in charge of safety and security on the relay. Him and I went ahead to check out the route for the towns we will be going through on day 32. We stopped in Kensington, P.E.I. and ended up getting haircuts at Karen's barber shop. I promised her I would put a plug in for her, awesome cuts, and friendly service.
