The Market Street Winter Olympic Games kicked off last week at Market Street East Lake with a singing of the Star-Spangled Banner. Participants competed in teams for 'swatterball,' and individually in the snowball pitch and curling event, with brooms festively decorated by residents. At the traditional closing ceremonies, the winners of each game were proudly presented with a trophy, while the group event received special medals designed by Market Street residents.
"Our resident Olympians were beaming with joy and pride in their accomplishments during the games," says Linda Pinke, Memory Care Director at Market Street East Lake. "Everyone enjoyed the tradition and camaraderie of the special event. As the winners posed gleefully with their trophies, our resident Betty Ann proclaimed, 'We are all winners!'"
