Alpine skiers Mac and BJ Marcoux will return to Sault Ste. Marie at 8:15 p.m. tonight.

Residents are invited to the airport to welcome home our Paralympic gold medallist from Sochi, Russia.

Wear red and white and bring signs and banners to show pride for our Paralympic champion.

“I encourage Sault residents to go to the airport this evening to give Mac, BJ and their family a warm welcome home. We are so proud of Mac’s sensational performance at the Sochi Winter Paralympics – winning 1 gold and 2 bronze medals,” says Mayor Debbie Amaroso.

There will be no cost to park at the airport – parking will be free courtesy of the Sault Ste. Marie Airport Development Corporation.

A community celebration to acknowledge the participation of Team Jacobs and Ted Nolan at the 2014 Winter Olympics, and the Marcoux Brothers at the 2014 Paralympics, will be held at the Essar Centre on April 3.
