KEYSER - Aging & Family Services of Mineral County will be hosting the 2018 Senior Olympics June 12-15 on the campus of Potomac State College.
The games are open to all citizens age 55 or older, and residents of any state or county may participate.
Since 2002, Mineral County has hosted over 1,500 seniors, with many of them coming from counties all over West Virginia and Maryland to participate in the annual games.
The Senior Olympics philosophy is to provide activities for all seniors, regardless of age or athletic ability. From Bocce to basketball and from Bingo to the spelling bee, events are chosen to include physical as well as nonphysical activities.  The variety of games ensures the accommodation of all skill levels and promotes an atmosphere of competition while still focusing on the importance of socialization.  
Events such as the picnic, banquet, and the talent show allow the participants to become better acquainted with each other.
The games will kick off with registration at 10 a.m. Tuesday, June 12, at the Church-McKee Arts Center.
The traditional torch walk with the athletes displaying their county banners will get underway at 1:15 p.m.
Activities are scheduled throughout the remainder of Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday at the arts center, on Stayman Field, at the Davis Conference Center, the Dana G. Lough gymnasium, Student Union, and University Place - all on the PSC Campus - as well as the Keyser Senior Center.
The banquet and awards ceremony will bring the four-day event to a close on Friday.
