LET THE GAMES BE­GIN

Times Chronicle & Public Spirit - - COMMUNITY -

Ann’s Choice, an Erick­son Liv­ing Re­tire­ment Com­mu­nity in Warminster, com­menced its ver­sion of the Olympics with a torch re­lay and a fes­tive open­ing cer­e­mony last month. The Ann’s Choice Chorus opened the event with a ren­di­tion of the na­tional an­them, fol­lowed by a wel­come from Ex­ec­u­tive Di­rec­tor Chris Donati. Im­me­di­ately fol­low­ing the cer­e­mony, nine res­i­dents par­tic­i­pated in a rub­ber duck race in the pool to raise money for the com­mu­nity’s Schol­ars Fund. The fund sup­ports the ed­u­ca­tional aspi­ra­tions of the young men and women who work in the com­mu­nity’s restau­rants. The res­i­dents formed a chain in the pool with swim noo­dles and pushed more than 200 ducks, spon­sored by res­i­dents and staff, to the other end. The first three ducks were the win­ners. The Olympic events in­clude wa­ter vol­ley­ball, shuf­fle­board, bocce, ten­nis, ping pong, bil­liards and putting green.
