A motorcade is planned in Placentia tomorrow for a returning sports hero.
Peter Hynes was the only Newfoundlander to compete on Team Canada at the Special Olympics 2019 World Games in Abu Dhabi. He’s coming home on Sunday after winning Bronze in Javelin.
Gordon Pike is the Program Coordinator for Special Olympics in the Placentia area. He says they have a big welcome planned.
Hynes’ flight arrives at 1:00 a.m. on Sunday and he arrives back home in Placentia around 5:00 p.m. when a motorcade will greet him at Northeast Arm. The rally will wind its way through the communities that make up the Placentia area, ending up at the Town Hall where there will be a rally.
