Delaware County Senior Games 2013

From June 10-21, 2013 Delaware County athletes, age 50 and older, competed in the 23rd annual Delaware County Senior Games. The Senior Games featured ten days of competitive events, medal presentations, and best of all, inspiring performances from the participants. This year's theme was "The Power of Age". The Delaware County Senior Games are sponsored by Delaware County Council, Department of Parks and Recreation, and the County Office of Services for the Aging (COSA). The culminating event for this year's games was a Winner's Circle luncheon held on July 2, 2013 at the Drexelbrook Corporate Events Center in Upper Darby.
