Administrative history

The St. Albert Olympic Celebration and Torch Committee was created in 1987. In 1988, the Winter Olympic Games were held in Calgary, and as a precusor to the games, the Eternal Flame, representing the spirit of the Olympic movement, was the centre of a relay across Canada on its way to Calgary. When the flame passed through St. Albert, an event was organized by the Olympic Celebration and Torch Committee so that St. Albert's citizens could get the opportunity to see the torch and the city could celebrate the Olympics in Alberta. Alderman Margaret Plain was chariman of the Olympic Celebration and Torch Committee. The committee planned many activities and celebrations, including the Olympic Torch party, Saturday, February 6, 1988 at St. Albert Place; and the Olympic Torch Relay, Wednesday, February 10, 1988, when the torch passed through St. Albert on its way to the XV Olympic Winter Games in Calgary.
