Big night for Community Living Peterborough

Elizabeth Manley brought along a few of her figure skating friends for a special party at the Memorial Centre on Saturday night.

The former Olympic medalist was the headliner of Elizabeth Manley and Friends Ice Show for Community Living Peterborough and Home Of Our Campaign.

The first number didn’t involve skating but rather an individual performance by guest singer Alan Frew of Glass Tiger who wrote the theme of the 2010 Vancouver Olympics I Believe.

Then Manley, who had a tumble and injured her back in practice earlier in the week, skated gingerly to the first number, performed by Frew, who handled much of the musical presentation for the evening’s festivities.

Love is Louder at star-studded PEC Skating Club show

Elizabeth Manley won the Olympic silver medal long before most of the Prince Edward County Skating Club members were born. But she easily won  everybody’s heart on Sunday, skating in support of the club’s “Love is Louder” anti-bullying message.

Manley was recovering from a flu bug, but her magical smile and powerful skating shone through, just like it did in Calgary in 1988 when she was competed at the games with a 105F fever.
