“Let the games begin” was the call on Tuesday, Oct. 11 at Tryon Estates, Columbus, when residents of Tryon Estates and those of four other Acts Retirement Life Communities went for the gold in eight OlympiActs activities, including brain games, bocce, billiards, walking relay and swimming pool relay. Members of the Tryon Estates team show their enthusiasm before the games commenced.
