Bourne at the Games

Car­bon­ear na­tive takes po­si­tion as man­ager for 2012 provin­cial games

The Compass - - ORTHTE -

At first glance, Stephanie Bourne’s of­fice does not fit her job ti­tle — man­ager of the 2012 New­found­land and Labrador Sum­mer Games, be­ing held in Har­bour Grace and Car­bon­ear this com­ing Au­gust.

Over her shoul­der, a pic­ture of the Queen Mother and Prince Charles over­see her work.

A Le­gion flag hangs in the far right cor­ner; let­ters from the prime min­is­ter are pinned to the wall to the right of her desk.

Just out­side her door, pic­tures of war vet­er­ans line the wall.

What makes it even more pe­culier is the lo­ca­tion — the Royal Cana­dian Le­gion build­ing ( for­merly the Bank of Nova Sco­tia) on Water Street in Har­bour Grace.

“I’ve only had time to set up com­puter, get my phone line and put some pa­pers on my desk,” said Bourne as she sweeps her hand over her work space.

Stephanie Bourne has been named man­ager for the 2012 New­found­land and Labrador Sum­mer Games.
