FLORESVILLE -- The sixth annual Floresville Long Term Care Senior Olympics is scheduled for Monday through Friday, May 13-17, during National Nursing Home Week.

Activity directors and social workers from the three Floresville nursing homes (Floresville Nursing and Rehab, Frank M. Tejeda Texas State Veterans Home, and Regency Manor Nursing and Rehab) have joined together to plan a fun-filled week for Floresville long-term care residents.

The week will commence on Monday at 9:30 a.m. with a parade, which will leave Regency Manor going to Floresville Nursing Center, and concluding at the veterans home. The administrator and director of nurses of each facility will present the Olympic flag and Olympic torch to their residents. Floresville Mayor Diana Garza will be the grand marshal leading the parade. Apollo Ambulance, showcasing the American flag, and the Wilson County Classic Car Club, which will carry administrators, will participate in the parade.

Community leaders are invited to show their Olympic spirit and support by joining in at Regency Manor on Monday at 9 a.m. for a rousing, fun-filled kickoff celebration. Mark your calendars and make plans to help provide a good turnout.

Competition in the Olympic Games will begin on Tuesday at 9:30 a.m. at Regency Manor, where residents will compete in Hoops, Wheelchair Races, Javelin Throw, Cow Chip Toss, and Roping the Steer. The second day of competition will be hosted by Floresville Nursing and Rehab, where residents will try their hand at Olympic Ring Toss, Wet & Wild Toss, Bean Bag Toss, Wet T-shirt Contest, Toilet Paper Toss, and Hole in One.

Frank M. Tejeda Texas State Veterans Home will host the third day of games, with competitions in Grenade Toss, Basic Training, Sharp Shooting, Brain Drain Trivia, and Basketball Bull’s Eye.

The week will conclude on Friday at 9 a.m. at the Floresville River Park. During this event, winners will receive their medals at 11 a.m. Prior to the awards presentation, residents will enjoy a dance with music by DJ Magic, and an hour of bingo -- their favorite game. Lunch will follow with Apollo’s brisket, potato salad, and beans.

Friends, relatives, and the community are invited to join the fun on any or all of the week’s events. Donations of bingo prizes for the residents would be greatly appreciated and can be dropped off at Regency Manor prior to the event, or at the park on Friday.

The long-term care facilities of Floresville appreciate those who volunteer and help with these special events. Nursing home residents are eagerly anticipating a week of fun events at the Senior Olympics 2013.
