2014 ended on a Sad Note with the passing of TWO FINE Senior Olympians, Fred Eitmann and Jeanne Ellis.  2015 began with the passing of another FINE Senior Olympian, Mickey Hurley, who passed away on January 9, seventy years after he fought over European skies in World War II.  GNOSO dedicates this memorial to Senior Olympians who have passed on, via the link at left "In Memoriam."

GNOSO:  an organzation devoted to "over-fifty" individuals enjoy a HEALTHY LIFESTYLE and have FUN! You don't have to be a Super-Jock to participate in GNOSO Events. Oh, the Games have super-athletic events, but GNOSO serves ALL SENIORS - NOT JUST ATHLETES. We have an event to fit your life-style. Regardless of whether you are a Vince Breaux, who can Bench Press 450 pounds (as a 69-year-old)
or are a 90+ year-old participant who does Washer Pitch plays Bridge, does Team Dancing* or does Track&Field*, we have something for you. GNOSO's goal is to get Seniors off the couch, out of the doctors offices, and into a Healthy Lifestyle, whether for the exercise, or for the social values of being around other Seniors. We are an all-volunteer staff (except the Program Director), dedicated to presenting the best that Louisiana has to offer in Senior Olympics.

Lake Charles will HOST the 2015 Louisiana Senior Olympics Games!
