This event is the culmination of the Greater New Orleans Senior Olympiad. It is a Celebration of the Athletes, a dinner, Recognition of the Participants and the Volunteers who "made it happen." But regardless of the individual pursuit, this is FUN, and is enjoyed by individuals of all ages.
Remember, Life BEGINS at 50!

GNOSO's GRAND FINALE for the 2012 Olympiad Included:

  • Jesuit High School Junior ROTC Color Guard - Presentation of The Colors
  • The Star Spangled Banner
  • Exhibition Performance by GOLD MEDAL AWARD-winning Dance Teams "Fever" and "Elmwood Sassy Steppers."
  • Open Dancing with the "Sassy Steppers"
  • Dinner by Koz's, paid for by Jefferson Parish Senior Services, and served by Jefferson Parish and Harahan City Officials
  • Continuous Slide Show of Photos taken during the 2010 Senior Olympic Games (but not without a minor glitch - some of the photos that had shown with correct orientation via Windows XP managed to revert to a 90-degree left orientation in Windows 7)
  • Presentation of the awards for the Oldest/Youngest Male and Female Athletes of the 2012 Olympiad

GNOSO's Mission is to provide seniors over the age of 50, quality venues to participate in a variety of athletic, recreational and social activities, all of which promote wellness and an active lifestyle.
