55+GAMES - Past Games


Teresa Tacchi

Welcome to the Manitoba Liquor and Lotteries 55 Plus Games.

As chair of the Active Living Coalition for Older Adults of Manitoba, it is my pleasure to thank our Host Committee for their hospitality, collaboration and organization of this year’s Games.

A big thank you also goes out to our Sponsors and Donors!

ALCOA-MB is extremely grateful for the support of its Sponsors:
• MB Liquor and Lotteries
• MB Credit Unions
• MB Hydro
• Sport MB, and the
• Winnipeg Free Press

Without your support, the 55 Plus Games would not be possible. And what a shame that would be! As the Games promote recreational activities for Manitobans 55 and older. They promote a healthy lifestyle, volunteerism and community involvement.

The games attract over a thousand participants, volunteers and spectators from across the province each year.

It provides a great way to meet new people in the community and reacquaint old friendships, year after year.

Seniors can have fun, competing in activities they love which challenge their mental and/or physical abilities, no matter what their fitness level. Or, they can try their hand at something new.

But the benefits of the 55 Plus Games extend beyond the competition, as many people plan vacations around the games. It allows us the opportunity to explore the wonderful province and country we live in by visiting the cities and communities that host the games, year after year.

The Games also help support the Canadian economy by keeping the money spent on vacations within our country.

Once again, on behalf of ALCOA-MB, we want to thank you for your continuous support, and look forward to many more ACTIVE years together.

Our sincere wish is that you will enjoy the competition, hospitality and friendships of the games as well as the natural beauty of the region.

We extend a hearty invitation to all to take part in the banquet, the variety concert and to take some time to stroll about the town and beach area. Best of luck to all!

We extend sincere thanks to the
