Seniors compete in events for a chance at state level.
Macon County Senior Games are under way in Franklin. Seniors 55 and older compete in various games for the chance to go to Raleigh and compete on the state level. Among the official events being offered are basketball shooting, softball throwing, bowling, bocce, billiards, croquet, track events, shuffleboard, spin casting and more.
For those leaning toward performing on a stage instead of an athletic field, the Silver Arts category showcases visual, heritage, literary and performing arts.
