What we're about

We are a group of active men and women age 50 and older who are young at heart, enjoying an active healthy lifestyle, are fit (or want to be fit), friendly and having fun participating in recreational, athletic and social events with peers, including some community service projects.

We actively promote activities that defy the myths about getting older. We are the 'forever young' generation! Visit our OPALs (http://www.opalssite.org) website and sign up to receive our online newsletter. You can learn more about our founder Carolyn here (http://www.CarolynHartfield.com). Some of the activities that we participate in include:

Hiking
Zip Lining
Horseback Riding
Bicycling
Basketball
Sailing
Caving

As the Ambassador for the state of Georgia for the annual World Senior Games held in October, in St. George, Utah, I am looking for more athletes to participate.
