Over two hundred people greeted the Olympic Torch when it stopped in Rothesay. Children and adults were cheering as the flame made it's final 300 meter run leading into the parking lot of the arena. Jim Bishop was on hand, decked out in his track suit from the 1988 Calgary Olympics when he was one of the torch bearers. Bishop tells CHSJ News, this years run brings back fond memories of his run.

Bishop and his son Mark carried the torch through Hammond River. The flame will resume it's trek this morning with a stop in Grand Bay Westfiled at the River-Valley Arena at 9:37am.
