We had our second victory dance of the week, as Len celebrated his win! We had 2 centenarians competing today! We had two lovely ladies, both 101 years old, tossing those bean bags like they were jelly beans into a candy jar. It just goes to show that a healthy lifestyle throughout life can lead you to a fulfilling old age. We were so honoured to have MPP Dr. Merrilee Fullerton join us for our closing ceremonies. Her words of encouragement and congratulations fell on eager ears as we were all interested to hear about her love of Square Dancing! Dr. Fullerton handed out the days medals and congratulated all our athletes on a successful week. With the Games officially closed everyone at The Courtyards on Eagleson, we are looking forward to preparing for the 11th Annual ASC Games. You can feel the anticipation in the air!
