Down East Senior Games

DESG was established in 1983 with a vision to create a year-round health promotion and wellness education program for adults 50 years of age and better. Participants will compete in their own age and sex categories in increments of five years. (Example: 50-54 is one age category and 80-84 is another.) Event categories in which you may choose to compete in are sports, literary arts, performing arts, visual arts, and heritage arts. For more information contact Allison Barrett at 252-462-2034.
