Following the huge success of the Canada Women’s Rugby Team at the 2016 Summer Olympics, the City of Williams Lake encourages the community to join the Williams Lake Rugby Football Club in celebrating our bronze medalist Kayla Moleschi’s return to Williams Lake.
A parade in Kayla’s honour will commence at 10 am on Saturday, August 27, 2016 at City Hall at 450 Mart Street, proceeding down Borland Street and right onto North Third Avenue to Marie Sharpe Elementary. City Councillor and local rugby representative Jason Ryll says, “We want to recognize the achievements made by Kayla, who has worked hard in so many ways. She's been a great ambassador for the game and for Williams Lake. It's the right thing to do.”
From 10:30 on, we will celebrate Kayla’s success at the Marie Sharpe field with speeches from Mayor Walt Cobb and local dignitaries, and the community will have an opportunity to take photos with our local Olympic hero.
The fun will continue at 11 am with an introduction to rugby workshop and Rookie Rugby Day events, followed by a touch rugby tournament from 12 pm – 2 pm. City of Williams Lake Council encourages the community to come out and show their support for our Olympic hero, Kayla Moleschi, and to enjoy the rugby events on Saturday.
