Kingston Games Success!

Thank you to all Law Enforcement members and the amazing Torch Runners who participated in running the Flame of Hope into the opening ceremonies.

It has been a long time since we have held a Provincial School Championships and the support of the LETR members made it extremely special for the athletes and everyone involved.

It was an eventful and smokey week, but one that commemorated a resilient return of the Flame of Hope.
