Overview

Glenn Seymour always led an active life with his large family, his work delivering mail, his garden and other hobbies. When he moved to Country Terrace Senior Living Apartments at the age of 90 his eyesight was failing and walking was growing more difficult. Glenn believed in keeping as active as possible so he joined the exercise class and participated in all of the activities Country Terrace offered. He was delighted in making up these games to keep his own mind active and to share with the other residents. He was still making up games when he passed away a few months before his 99th birthday. Enjoy these games and see if your mind is as sharp as Glenn's was.
