2014 Piedmont Plus Senior Games and SilverArts are a great success
Thank you to our SilverArtists and Athletes for making the 30th Anniversary of the Piedmont Plus Senior Games a tremendous success. A special thank you goes out to our financial and in-kind sponsors involved in the 2014 PPSG. Those who supported us financially were Heritage Woods, Humana, Grocery on Board, Southern-Western Life and Homestead Hills. Please use every opportunity to support those who support us. A final thank you goes out to the Volunteers for this year's games. In addition to Winston-Salem State University we saw new volunteers from our Steering Committee and even from some of our participants who were off an a particular event day as evidenced when several men call ladies bocce and later some of the ladies returned the favor calling the men's tournament.
This year we were five participants shy, 544, of setting a new record. The big news is that of those 544 we had 142 first time participants. We continue to grow with nearly 150 participants in each of the past three years.

Save the Dates for the Grand Games & Fall Senior Games
We are set for October 20 - 24 for the Fall Senior Games. Let us know which events you would like to have. October 11 is the date set aside for our second annual Grand Games event. We will have five varying events in which a Senior is welcomed to play and score as many points possible. However there is a twist. In this case, you must have a partner. Your partner must be a grandchild below the age of 14. Miller Park will once again play host for the event and we look forward to seeing you at this FREE event. Contact Jessica Garrett at 727-2321 if you plan on participating in either of these events. We look forward to seeing you there.
