We are back!! The Franklin County Silver Games will be held September 11 through September 17, 2021. We are currently working on event locations, dates, and times.
The Franklin County Silver Games is a volunteer and donation operated organization. We would not be able to do the things we do, or offer the events, food, t-shirt, participant bags, etc. without the generous people and businesses who are listed throughout our event booklet and under our Sponsors tab. Please help us thank them by patronizing them whenever possible. They are our financial support!!!
Also a BIG Thank-You to all of our volunteers who have worked so hard to put the events together, the sponsors who donated money or items, and to the participants who help make the games a success year after year!!!
WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF THE GAMES? The games are an annual Olympic-style sports festival that provide seniors (50+ years old) with an excellent opportunity to compete in their favorite sports. The games promote social, competitive, athletic, and recreational activities for older adults. They promote and create an interest in lifetime sports, recreation, and physical exercise as a means of enhancing one’s quality of life. They create an awareness of the abilities and capabilities of older citizens. This is a countywide event for participants, families and friends. Whether you compete, support the participants, or just watch, you are invited to be part of the Franklin County Silver Games.
