That's the belief of many people and especially of Jason Wall, executive director of the Louisiana Senior Olympic Games.
Wall will be the guest speaker of the Feliciana OLLI Chapter at their Coffee Party on Wednesday May 16, at 10 a.m. at the First Baptist Church Fellowship Hall, in St. Francisville.
As director of the Louisiana Senior Olympics, Wall likes to quote the slogan "activities through the ages - join the fun: there's something for everyone."
Wall is a Baton Rouge native, a graduate of Catholic High School and LSU and a former pitcher for the LSU baseball team.
