Flag Signing Held For Alex Duckworth

Lunenburg County's newest Olympian is about to get an extra push from local residents. The Municipality of Lunenburg and town of Bridgewater are giving people a chance to sign flags that will be given to Alex Duckworth before she competes in the Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia. The flag signing will begin Friday night at the Lunenburg County Lifestyle Centre. One of the mayors, Don Downe, feels the support will mean a lot to Duckworth.

Both councils have also agreed to contribute $1,000 to help support Duckworth and her training. Flags will be available to sign until February 6 before Duckworth's parents take them to Sochi. Duckworth competes in the women's half-pipe snowboarding event on February 12. Below are the the dates when the flags will be available to sign at the Lunenburg County Lifestyle Centre.
