FLORESVILLE -- For the fifth year running, residents of the Regency Manor nursing home, the Floresville Nursing and Rehabilitation Center, and the Frank M. Tejeda Texas State Veterans Home joined together May 14-18 in the spirit of friendly competition, as they took part in the Floresville Long-Term Care Senior Olympics.

The weeklong event began Monday with the lighting of the torch and a parade to all three homes. Competition began Tuesday, as residents competed in a number of events at Regency Manor. The javelin throw, wheelchair racing, and a cow-chip toss were among the events. On Wednesday, the games moved over to the Floresville nursing center, where participants competed in a number of events, including Olympic ring toss, pin drop, and hole in one. The final day of competition was held at the veterans home Thursday, as events such as basic training, sharpshooting, and the grenade toss kept residents in the spirit of competition.

On May 18, participants and local officials gathered at Floresville River Park for an awards ceremony, dance, and barbecue.

“It makes me so happy to see all of the residents enjoying themselves, and the pride they have when competing in the games,” said Regency Manor Administrator Teena Lubianski-Dailey. “They enjoy visiting with other residents from the other homes and just have a great time all week.

“We certainly could not have made this year’s event such a huge success without the help of our many sponsors, including Apollo Ambulance, the city of Floresville, Mark Brown, Nurses In Touch, and many others,” she added.

Lubianski-Dailey said they also received a great deal of help from the many family members, Floresville students, and “wonderful, dedicated staff” from all three homes.
