LINZI FELAN/Contributor From tossing a wet T-shirt to lassoing a “steer,” the senior residents of Floresville’s nursing and rehabilitation centers did it all May 14-18, during the Floresville Long-Term Care Senior Olympics.

The friendly annual games pitted residents of the Frank M. Tejeda Texas State Veterans Home, Floresville Residence and Rehabilitation Center, Regency Manor Nursing & Rehabilitation, and New Haven Assisted Living and Memory Care against each other.

Here’s some of the action. Look in next week’s Wilson County News for the overall winners!
