On February 20, about twenty Sisters took part in a bean bag toss tournament. Regardless of physical condition and degree of expertise, everyone was invited to this fun-filled activity, organized by the Recreation Committee from Maison Jésus-Marie.
The main objective was to have fun and to encourage the participation of as many as possible. You just had to see the players getting themselves into position, tossing the bean bag and deriving great pleasure participating in this group activity.
During this Olympics year, the tournament produced three champions, namely the three Sisters who had accumulated the most points.
They were Sister Marie-Claire Morin with 4900 points, followed by Sister Olivette Blais, who at the grand old age of 99 and still counting, accumulated 2600 points and Sister Lise Geoffrion who completed the winning trio, with 1900 points.
As was aptly pointed out by one of the organizers of the activity, “age is no obstacle to participation.”
