The Northwest Tennessee District for Senior Olympics is a special event for seniors 50 and older that combines a wide range of competitive activities. The objectives of the Senior Olympics are to recognize people who have achieved and maintained good health throughout their lives; promote physical fitness and the pursuit of the lifetime leisure activities; and provided opportunities for fun, recreation and fellowship.
The Northwest Tennessee area covers Benton, Carroll, Crockett, Dyer, Gibson, Henry, Lake, Obion and Weakley counties. The 2013 Northwest Tennessee Senior Olympics will not be held in the spring as it has been in past years. This year, all events are being moved to the fall. The dates have been set for Oct. 7-21 and the closing ceremony will be Oct. 31.
Anyone who would like to be added to the mailing list for Senior Olympics info may call Jeana Mills at 885-1246.
