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.
