MONTGOMERY, NJ - There was no generation gap between area seniors and fourth graders last Friday as both tested their skills in such timed events as Q-Tip balancing, unraveling toilet paper and emptying tissue boxes.

The intergenerational Minute-to-Win-It Challenge took place for the eighth year offering area seniors and youth an opportunity to have fun together and compete for the Minute-to-Win-It Trophy.

Over one hundred area seniors and nearly as many fourth graders from the Village and Hillsborough Elementary Schools participated in the morning games at the Otto Kaufman Montgomery Community Center.

“It’s not often that these two age groups have a chance to compete together, cheer each other on and then share a meal,” said Anthony Franchini, president of the Rotary Club of Hillsborough.  “We are happy to work together with the Rotary Club of Montgomery/Rocky Hill to sponsor this fun community event.”

Hillsborough Township wound up victorious, bringing the win record to five to three in Montgomery’s favor.  

“It would be difficult to say which age group enjoys this competition more,” added Jeff Gould, president of the Rotary Club of Montgomery/Rocky Hill.  “It’s all in good fun, but both seniors and fourth graders want to bring home that trophy.”
