55+GAMES - Legacy of the 55+ Games

2014 - NEEPAWA, MB


We, the Neepawa host committee for the 2014 Manitoba Liquor & Lotteries 55 Plus 
Games are pleased to report that this event was exceptionally successful 
even though several of our members were not familiar with the 55 Plus Games. 
Having said this, we were most fortunate that all of our 300 members were 
experienced volunteers with different other organizations and bonded well, 
becoming friends while working together before, during and after the completion 
of the games. Many of these members became acquainted with a lot of athletes 
from other parts of the province and became close friends of several of these 
visitors.

We are also grateful to the Regional Games Representatives and Head 
Office staff for all their help, guidance and co-operation. We were pleased to be 
able to provide space and purchase equipment for new competitions in Neepawa 
such as pickleball and scrabble which is a legacy from hosting the 2014 Games.
We offer our congratulations to the Beausejour Host Committee for their 
successful bid to the 2015 Manitoba Liquor & Lotteries 55 Plus Games. We are 
confident that they will host an excellent event.
