Senior Games a success at Royal Lane


Tracey Honeycutt and Jonathan Allen talk about the Mid-Carolina Senior Games, going over the rules and the benefits it brings. The Senior Games, in their 32nd year, are held for seniors ages 50 and up. Participants compete in events such as basketball, corn hole and horseshoes, to name a few. The top performers go on to the nationals where they face off against other top scoring seniors from all over. The event keeps the elderly active and provides a great social gathering for the seniors and their respective communities, organizers said. To find out more about the Senior Games, contact Honeycutt, Mid Carolina Area Agency on Aging Director, at thoneycutt@mccog.org, or Catherine Brake, Senior Games Coordinator, at coler@mccog.org.
