On Friday, May 12th, Montgomery County Commissioners attended the closing luncheon of the 32nd annual Montgomery County Senior Games. This year’s games had over 500 participants who had to be 50 years of age or older by December 31st, 2017.
Sponsored in part by the office of Aging and Adult Services, which is part of Montgomery County Health and Human Services department, the Senior Games combine sports, recreation and fellowship. Events include bowling, swimming, bocce, tennis, golf, horseshoes and more and took place all throughout the County.
“We encourage our seniors to stay active and healthy, and the Montgomery County Senior Games help make it easy and fun for them to do so,” said Dr. Val Arkoosh, Chair, Montgomery County Commissioners. “It gives our older residents a week to compete, encourage each other to keep moving, and to try new activities or reacquaint themselves with an old pastime. But most importantly, it is a week to get out and just have fun.”
