peared to enjoy their ac-
tivities, as well as the en-
couragement they received
from the workers and
volunteers. Howard reports
no difference in the way the
Center staff runs the training
sessions this year. "It's still
good and we have a great
time!'
Kevan Shink says the com-
petition "makes me feel
great!' But he is also looking
forward to the beginning and
end of the Aug. 28 events. He
will light the torch, Olympic-
style, to help open the games.
"I'm probably gonna be ner-
vous," he admits. "I've never
been in front of 2,000 people
and my parents!' He also
looks forward to the invita-
tional dinner-dance which
will follow the games. "I lik-
ed it very much," last year, he
says. "The dinner-dance was
fun. I like to dance a lot!'
The volunteers also have
fun working with the par-
ticipants. Stillwater says he
volunteers "to give something

back to the community. I have
two healthy children and I've
been watching the Special
Olympics year after year on
TV. I wanted to help, and this
was an opportunity to help
the Jewish mentally disabled
. . . I really look forward to
spending two-and-a-half
hours every Thursday and on
every other Sunday. It's a
good feeling that you have
and I would recommend
anybody to do it.
"You hear a lot of people
saying that 'I wish I could do
this or, one of these days I'm
going to do that! The hardest
thing is to make the first
phone call and to commit
yourself. But I think once the
commitment is done it doesn't
even seem like a commitment
any more. It's a work of love
and to see the response from
the people here is terrific!'
Volunteers are still needed
for the Aug. 28 games. For

Detroit Will Host
1990 Maccabi Games

t's gone east, it's gone
west. Now, it's coming
back to Detroit.
Less than a week before the
opening of the fourth North
American Youth Maccabi
Games in Chicago, Detroit ac-
cepted an offer to play host to
the 1990 games.
Monday night's announce-
ment makes Detroit, which
held the 1984 games, the first
city to stage the event twice.
The games moved to Toronto

in 1986.
About two months ago, the
North American Maccabi
Youth Games committee ask-
ed Detroit to "consider" tak-
ing the 1990 competition, ac-
cording to Dr. Marty Oliff,
assistant executive director of
the Jewish Community
Center. Oliff announced the
Center's acceptance on
Monday.
The committee looked to
Detroit because of its 1984
record. The Detroit games
were run efficiently and were
a consensus success. In con-
