When the 28th annual week-long Senior Sports and Arts Festival was held in Billings in May, several Sweetwater residents enjoyed indoor and outdoor competition and events. More than 25 activities were offered including a new Zoo Montana walking tour.

Sweetwater hosted the Wii bowling competition on the 14th with Chuck Dillon tying for second place with Bev Schillinger. Other winners and participants included Margaret Gasiorowski who played Bingo and Betty Harrison and Pearl Edwards who participated in the mile walk and in the Zoo Montana walk. Pearl placed second and Betty placed third in their age group.

Marianne Miller, marketing director for Sweetwater, said the group enjoyed the events and the banquet at the Holiday Inn, which concluded the competition.

Each sponsor has a booth where participants sign tickets for drawings of goodies, plants, baskets, gift cards, etc. “This activity enables people to meet others who enjoy the same things they do,” she explained.
