August 11, 2011 At the Holiday Inn in Point Edward local ParaSport athlete Mitchell Blondin raised the Ontario Flag to officially count down the day to the Games.

Also this year for the first time, Volleyball Canada will be hosting a "Seated Volleyball" Camp at the Gym in Lambton College.

The games will begin on Friday August 19 with the Torch Relay.  The relay will start at the Holiday Inn at 10:00 am and end at the Sarnia Central Athletics Track and Field Complex on East Street at 11:00 am.  The route will travel along Venetian Blvd to Exmouth Street, up Exmouth to East Street and then down East Street past London Road to the St. Patrick's High School and the Sarnia Central Atheltics Track and Field Complex.  At 11:00 am the cauldron will be lit during the Opening Ceremonies and the Games will officially be open.

The local organizing committee would like to encourage all local business to place welcome
