ST. CLOUD -- The city of St. Cloud has been chosen as the site for the 2015 and 2016 Minnesota Senior Games.

The games are designed for individuals or teams ages 50 and older to compete in a variety of events.

Kelly Sayre is the games chair and says St. Cloud is a good choice for the games based on the city's location.
