As the 2022 Winter Olympics concluded this past weekend in Beijing, so did the Merrill Family Olympics all over the country. Residents loved the friendly competition and creative events that they have been competing in for the past few weeks!

To kick off the big event, our residents at Huntington Beach (CA) participated in their own opening ceremony, complete with the passing of the torch! It was so much fun getting everything started and everyone was excited for the games to come.

So many communities got in on the fun as they created their own versions of the Olympic games. From cotton ball ice hockey all the way to the ring toss, residents were able to flex their competitive muscles in a variety of different ways. At Carolina Park (SC) they broke out the hockey sticks and took their shots!
