2018 “Fire It Up!” Torch Tour

The first stop of the 2018 Arkansas Senior Olympics “Fire It Up!” Torch Tour and Press Conference  and “meet and greet” took place in Fayetteville, Arkansas on July 6th, 2018 at Fayetteville High School’s Harmon Field.

Fayetteville’s Mayor Jordan spoke and was in attendance.  Ms. Senior Arkansas 2017; Sherry Marshall sang the National Anthem.    Ms. Senior Arkansas 2108; Dixie Ford was present, as well as representatives of some local Chambers of Commerce and Visitors Bureaus and the Area Agency.   Several local Senior Olympic athletes came out and were able to follow the Torch on a bike ride, and/or carried the Torch around the track.   Kona Ice was also onsite for the entire event, and we send a special shout out and thank you to Shane at Kona Ice for keeping us cool and your generosity.   A local fire truck and crew also helped “Fire It Up!” in Fayetteville.

THANK YOU FAYETTEVILLE and EVERYONE that attended!    Onward to the next city in Arkansas soon….
