Wayne team brings home trophy

Residents of Wayne Care Centre captured the trophy for the most medals per number of participants during the annual Olympiatrics held Sept. 4 at Lyons.

Team members include Erma Koester (who received second place in the cow pie toss), Ora Shove (second in bowling), Ellen Hansen, Jim Thordsen, Mary Ambroz (third in bead threading), Alma Splittgerber and Loyal Kee (second in Frisbee toss).

Other events included nail driving, pancake flipping, football throw, egg peeling, darts, basketball, can stacking, pillow stuffing, wheelchair races, rod and reel casting, guessing games and a volleyball tournament.

The Olympiatrics began as one care center's idea for an area activity and now involved care centers throughout most of the Northeast District.

The care centers take turns volunteering to host the event.
