Pennsylvania seniors go tobogganing

Do you ever feel nostalgic about your youth, or feel that you had the most fun as a child, and the experience is gone forever? If so, take heed from a group of Pennsylvania seniors, who recently went tube tobogganing.

As reported by the New England Cable News, the group of seniors, all of whom are residents of Bethany Village Retirement Community, a Pennsylvania assisted living community outside of the state capital of Harrisburg.

Based on feedback from the seniors, the outing was a big success.

“I had a bad knee, and the doctor said I couldn't do this,” one Bethany Village resident and trip regular Mary Murphy, told the news source. “I don't care about the doctor now. When you're this old, what the heck!”

One of the oldest participants in the excursion was 95 year-old Nancy Bomboy, who is a regular participant. In the spring, the group from Bethany Village goes water rafting on the Yellow Breeches Creek, part of Pennsylvania’s Susquehanna River.
