Through May and June, London District 30 held a full schedule of events for residents aged 55+, for serious competition – and mostly for fun. Winners from these events qualify for the Southwest Regional event to be held in Sarnia on Aug 16. The Regional events are organized by the Ontario 55+ organization called OSGA 55+.
Some Londoners braved the elements for Prediction Walking and Slo-Pitch, but the cool weather didn’t dampen their enthusiasm. Many other events were held indoors, kindly hosted by the Marconi Club, Longworth, Richmond Woods & Windermere Retirement homes, Kiwanis & Horton Street Senior Centres, Victory Legion & City of London Optimist Community Centres.
