Plymouth’s Trillium Woods Hosts Senior Olympics
As the world’s top athletes battle it out at the Olympics in Tokyo, residents of a senior living community in Plymouth are doing their own version of the summer games.
This Olympic-style competition has been held every other year since 2016, but they had to put the event on hold in 2020 due to the pandemic.
With most of the residents now vaccinated, the summer games was one of the first big events at Trillium Woods since they lifted restrictions.
“It’s been a really good start to coming out of all the COVID restrictions and being able to be together again, seeing faces, laughing and cheering each other on,” said Sam LeFaive, Trillium Woods fitness manager.
Trillium Woods opened a new outdoor recreation area in June, but due to the poor air quality, many of the events had to be moved indoors. Staff members got creative and made a makeshift basketball hoop using a flower pot.
