RIVER FALLs - Seniors Day took place on Monday at the Ramer Field Sports Complex at UW-River Falls during the Kansas City Chiefs Summer Training Camp's 19th practice. There were 77 senior citizens in attendance, setting a record high for Seniors' Day. Seniors came from all over including River Falls, Stillwater, Minn., Woodbury, Minn., and Ellsworth, Wis.


Seniors took over the majority of the bleachers on the east end of the practice fields. They were able to watch the morning practice while enjoying a Kansas City Chiefs Summer Training Camp seat cushion, a Camp Journal, coffee, cookies and candy!

Right before practice ended, there was a raffle drawing with Dairy Queen treat coupons from the River Falls Dairy Queen and movie passes to the Falls Theater in town. There were a total of 20 prizes raffled off.

A special thank you goes out to all that donated prizes and volunteered their time to make this event a success. Thank you to the River Falls Dairy Queen and the Falls Theater in River Falls, Ryan Wenberg (14) from Hammond, Wis., and Meghan Zillmer (12) of River Falls.
