The 2019 Westmoreland County Senior Games got underway last week for the 36th year. Activities will run through Friday at Mammoth Park and other locations.

The theme is “Bring a Friend for Fun and Fitness.” Anyone age 50 or older can participate. The goal of the annual event, coordinated by the county’s Parks and Recreation department, is to encourage seniors to be active and continue participating in recreational activities.

Among the nearly three dozen activities featured are: archery, bocci, cornhole, darts, cycling, golf, horse shoes, shuffleboard, swimming and walking. Cost is $12 to register on site.

More information about registration can be found on the Westmoreland County website or by calling 724-830-3952.

Westmoreland County Senior Games started in 1983.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
