A generation of baby boomers is learning that, while they can't reverse age, they certainly can embrace life!

Missouri State Senior Games, an off-shoot of Missouri Show Me Games, is filled with positive people who do not let their age define their joy of participation. People in this area are fortunate to have venues close to them in the Franklin County Silver Games

What will the future hold for the Class of 2015? Time will tell.

My youngest has now graduated from high school. Back in 1980, I was the youngest of my family who graduated.
