The residents of Morning Pointe of Hixson said they can’t get enough of cornhole.  "Even when they aren’t playing against their fellow Morning Pointe residents in the ongoing, Chattanooga-wide tournament, they’re squaring off against the residents of other senior living communities," officials said.

Recently, they participated in a cornhole tournament against another senior living community. Family members and friends came out to cheer on the teams, and local vendors were also on the scene, with the proceeds from their sales benefiting the Alzheimer’s Fund. 
 
“The weather was perfect, and the company was delightful,” says Christine Rivers, the life enrichment director at Morning Pointe of Hixson.

“We had a great afternoon of fun.”
