More im­ages from the Games

The Compass - - P2012ORTHTE -

The 2012 NL Sum­mer Games have now faded into his­tory, and will long be re­mem­bered as a tremen­dous mile­stone for the vol­un­teer community in Con­cep­tion Bay North. The Games, which were co-hosted by the towns of Car­bon­ear and Har­bour Grace, were be­ing cel­e­brated as an over­whelm­ing suc­cess dur­ing the clos­ing cer­e­monies on Satur­day, Aug. 25. The Com­pass ded­i­cated nearly all of its pages to the Games in the Aug. 28 print edition, and we en­thu­si­as­ti­cally present more im­ages from the sport­ing spec­ta­cle in this edition.
