Maine Senior Games

Just because someone is older doesn't mean they lose their interest in athletic activities and competition. Maine Senior Games offers adults age 45 and up the chance to participate and compete in athletic and recreational events, from basketball to bowling to, yes, pickleball. Events take place in different cities and towns throughout Maine, and, on even years, people can qualify for the National Senior Games. We'll learn what to expect this year, and how to get involved.

Jonathan was born in Monsey, New York. A field trip to Washington, DC when he was in 7th grade started him on his circuitous path to a career in public radio. The trip inspired a love of politics and led to his desire to one day call DC home. After graduating from Grinnell College, he worked on a couple of campaigns in Iowa (presidential and congressional) and moved to Washington, DC.
