2nd Annual JOY Games Set for September

RICHMOND, IN – LifeStream Services, Reid Health Alliance Medicare, The Leland Legacy, and Richmond Senior Community Center are bringing back JOY (Just Older Youth) Games for the second year. The event, previously known as Area 9 Senior Games, features three days of fun-filled activities for adults over the age of 55 to enjoy.

The JOY Games will be held on September 22, 23, and 24 at various locations throughout Richmond including Jack Elstro Plaza, Clear Creek Park, Highland Lake Golf Course, and Richmond Senior Community Center.

Day 1 of JOY Games will offer food trucks at Jack Elstro Plaza. Food trucks will be open to the public to enjoy and JOY Games participants will receive a voucher to redeem at the food trucks for lunch.

Those who are 55 and older can participate in activities including pickleball, corn hole, fitness classes, bingo, chair volleyball, golf scramble, fishing tournament and much more. The cost to participate is just $10 and includes as many activities that you’d like to participate in, as well as the opportunity to enjoy lunch, awards, and a t-shirt.
