Many of our members and friends of the church participated in activities with Local Senior Games this spring in High Point, Davidson and Rowan Counties. We have folks that regularly attend church here and others that regularly participate in pickleball here at Pleasant Grove that played. Not only did we have folks that participated but most of them also received awards and medals. Sue Kanoy participated in the track and field events / fun walk. Her event did not get medals or we are sure she would have been at the top. I heard that she participated to get the free purple tee shirt. She is a little crazy for the color purple. We had so many nice friends that came out and cheered and supported us for our events.
Those folks that received medals in the local games will have the opportunity to participate in the NC State Senior Games later this year. And if they medal in the State competition will have the opportunity to go the National Sr. Games. We are so proud of our local athletes. We have so much fun at tournaments and here at the church. We thank God for the ability to participate in these activities and to stay healthy. We also are so appreciative of our church for providing a wonderful place for us to play pickleball and fellowship with our friends in Christ.
The following is the list of the medal winners and events. (I hope I have not left anyone off the list.) Congratulations to all of our participants and good luck in the State Games later this year.
