Nine residents from St. Johnland Nursing Center in Kings Park participated in the 14th Annual Suffolk County Golden Games held at the YMCA in Patchogue. Teams from other nursing facilities across the county competed in five different events at the all-day sports competition. Replicating Olympic ceremonies, the games give the teams an opportunity to display their athletic talents and to connect with residents from other facilities. St. Johnland’s team, which practices for many months to develop competitive skills, took part in team and individual contests and brought home a gold medal in women’s basketball throw and a silver in volleyball. The oldest team member is 97!
Congratulations to the entire team!!
