Paul and Hannah in their volunteer uniforms.
The opening ceremony for the Special Olympics National games was wonderful.
The mayor said of all the events he'd attended in the arena, none had been so moving as watching the athletics parade in.
Lily performed fantastically well as did all the dancers in the group. We were in the front of the seats for Manawatu supporters and had a great view. Paul videoed it on his cell phone so I'll get him to post it here later.
TV one news were filming it all and are putting on a special on Sunday night after the main news.
Today our two keen volunteers left bright and early for the pool, Hannah as timekeeper and Paul to sort out his field hospital as first-aider!
