FLORESVILLE -- The 2013 Long Term Care Senior Olympics of Floresville were very successful. Seventy-two medals were awarded to the participants at the awards presentation at the Floresville River Park May 17. The medal presenters were Mayor Diana Garza, Jesse Davis of Apollo Ambulance, and Dr. Emily Frye of WELLMED. More than 100 residents from the three Floresville nursing homes participated in the five-day event. The smiles of the residents attested to their enjoyment.

The Athlete of the Year awards went to Karen Rigby from Floresville Nursing & Rehab, Jimmy Cheek from the Frank M. Tejeda Texas State Veterans Home, and Jesse Musquiz of Regency Manor Nursing & Rehab.

Each participant received a different color T-shirt according to the nursing facility at which they reside. The T-shirts were provided by sponsors 3-Way Trucking, Apollo Ambulance, City Wide Vending, Mayor Diana Garza, Dr. Daryl Currier, Dr. William Follett, Dr. Steven Scheppler, Nurses In Touch Hospice and Home Health, and WELLMED of Floresville.

More than 200 residents, family members, and friends enjoyed a barbecue brisket meal after the awards ceremony. The delicious meal was provided and prepared by Apollo Ambulance.

Prior to the awards ceremony, more than 300 bingo prices were won by the residents in attendance. Various vendors donated the prizes. A special thanks to the Life Skills students of Floresville High School and their teachers for helping with the events each day.
