FLORESVILLE -- The Summer Olympics may only come around once every four years, but in Floresville, residents of the city’s three long-term care centers competed in the fourth year of the Senior Olympics. The five-day event was held May 9-13, and more than 130 participants from the Floresville Nursing and Rehabilitation Center, Frank M. Tejeda Texas State Veterans Home, and Regency Manor Nursing and Rehab Center competed in 24 different events.

Residents from the three nursing facilities described the event as fun and stimulating. They enjoyed visiting the neighboring facilities, and enjoyed interacting with friends they hadn’t seen in years. Many of the residents are already anticipating and talking about the 2012 Olympics.

Event coordinators described the volunteers as “super,” indicating they made the five-day event possible. It was said that a lot of energy was exerted, but that everyone had “lots of fun.”

The residents also enjoyed the awards ceremony held at the Floresville River Park May 13, and everyone who attended won a bingo prize.

The coordinators expressed their thanks to everyone who helped make the week possible, including those who ran and scored the games, those who helped to move the residents around, and those who presented the medals. They also thanked the people responsible for organizing and donating prizes, T-shirts, and of course, the Floresville Police Department and the city of Floresville.
