The Games began with a Chase Your Elders Fun Run/Walk around the Devonshire Senior Residence and proceeded to a refreshing water balloon toss, followed by The Wing and a Prayer Interplay Troupe performance directed by Sheila Collins, Zumba by Janet Miller and Tai Chi by Gurney Bolster, and various picnic, gym and board games all at the Salvation Army Community Center.

Lunch was provided by Pittsburgh Barbeque Company, Mitchell’s Fish Market and Betsy’s Ice Cream with entertainment by Don Anderson and Bob Lee and his Blue Devils Blues Band performing a Sinatra Sing Along.  After lunch participants entered a rousing Jitterbug Contest conducted by John Dryden and DJ Tyler Anderson, which concluded the day’s activity on a high note. Highmark and Interim Healthcare were the major sponsors for the event.
