Davie County Senior Games and SilverArts finished the 2024 season with a record registration.

There were 230 registered participants this season, over 50 more than the 2023 season, outdoing all previous records set in Davie County.

Davie County Senior Services held the Senior Games Closing Ceremony and SilverArts Follies on Thursday, May 23.

To kick off the event, the performing arts showcase competed for the “Best in Show” title. There were three judges: Kelly Funderburk, Shanda Smith and Susan Wall.

There were four acts competing for the title.

The night kicked off with a performance from Judy Phillips singing “It Matters to the Master,” followed by the Boogie Brigade performing “Flashdance.” Up next was Ina Beavers singing “Crazy” and the night finished with the Happy Tappers performing “Celebration.”

The Boogie Brigade was first, the Happy Tappers second and Ina Beavers third.

This event was attended by approximately 100 people and featured a meal from Miller’s Restaurant. To officially close this season, Senior Games and SilverArts Coordinator, Carrie Miller, with the help of Tiffany Marlow in Davie County Technology Solutions, showed a compilation video of the 2024 season. This video can be viewed on the Davie Senior Services Facebook page and highlights special moments throughout the season.

Even though the official Senior Games and SilverArts season is over for 2024, there are still many activities coming up to keep preparing for next year. To learn more about these activities, contact Miller at 336-753-6230 or
