In May and June of this year the local +55 seniors have been competing in 14 different games ranging from card games to shuffleboard, lawn bowling and golf. The $20 yearly fee allows one to participate in all the summer and winter games. This year is special since the winners are eligible to compete at the Ontario Games in Mississauga on August 10-12. There will be a bus going and the local district subsidizes those going on the bus.

In the alternate years a one-day Regional Games are held and in 2019 our district will host all those from Eastern Ontario so this is a big project requiring hours of planning, applying for grants and working with the local municipalities to pull off a successful event. Our district covers Mississippi Mills, Carleton Place, Beckwith and part of Lanark Highlands so it’s a chance to bring several hundred people to our area who hopefully will return since they will be so impressed with the beauty of our area.

The winners for the first half of the local games are:
