High Peaks Resort to hold collector’s event on Friday, Jan. 17

The 25-minute video acts as a neat time capsule that captured a cross-section of the Games’ most notable events, said Fitzgerald, including footage from the torch run, Miracle on Ice, the first use of the newly constructed Mt. Van Hoevenberg Olympic Bobsled Run and candid footage of the massive crowds that packed the streets.

“It’s an interesting fashion statement,” said Fitzgerald, “the kind of thing that if you were there, you’d be scanning to see if you anyone you know was there.”

Appraisers will be on hand at the High Peaks Resort to examine collections in an antique roadshow-type setting, said Fitzgerald, and the afternoon’s events will be documented by Mountain Lake PBS for a televised program to be aired shortly after the event.

I was a Chef in the Olympic Villiage feeding the athletes. What a memory. Wish I could be there to see the city again and all the memorabelia. I cooked for the hockey team only hours after they recieved their medals. Now that was a party.
