Salisbury/Rowan Senior Games announce ambassadors

Wadene Drew, Charles and Debra Underwood and Eleanor Whitehouse of Salisbury have been chosen by Salisbury/Rowan Senior Games & SilverArts to serve as a North Carolina Senior Games ambassadors.

The four games participants chosen have volunteered many hours during the 2014 season. They will join Don Anderson, Ron Boyer, Hazel Trexler-Campbell, Vincent Campbell, Bob and Betty Goodwin, Bill and Joanne French, George Kluttz and Harry and Kay Morgan, other North Carolina Senior Games ambassadors in Rowan County.

Ambassadors are a group of individuals who have committed themselves to encouraging others in their community and across the state to stay healthy and live better longer through participation in Senior Games programs. Ambassadors assist their Senior Games Coordinator in recruiting participants and promoting Senior Games. Ambassadors receive state level training in public relations, marketing and Senior Games information.

Salisbury/Rowan Senior Games is one of 53 sanctioned programs serving all 100 counties. The statewide Senior Olympics program motivates participants to stay active and healthy.

Senior Games offer more than 65 athletic and arts events. Other programs that are available include SilverArts, celebrating the creative talents of North Carolina’s senior artists, and SilverStriders, a national award-winning walking program.

North Carolina Senior Games is a nonprofit organization. NCSG is sponsored statewide by the North Carolina Division of Aging and Adult Services.

Salisbury/Rowan Senior Games & SilverArts are sponsored locally by  premier sponsor Novant; gold sponsors Carillon Assisted Living, Comfort Keepers, Humana, The Laurels, Magnolia Gardens, Salisbury Center Genesis and Trinity Oaks;  silver sponsor Moose Pharmacy.  For more information on how to participate, volunteer or sponsor programs contact Phyllis Loflin-Kluttz, coordinator for Rowan County, at 704-216-7780, www.rowanseniorgames.org
