Landmark Activities

Residents, family members, community guests, and staff celebrated Halloween 2018 with a time of fun and fellowship. The fun began on October 26, 2018, with an in-house Halloween party. Sheila Shouse, Assistant Dining Director, and Daniel Quesenberry, Assistant Activity Coordinator, put their minds together and created four “brains” which represented the brain of a man, woman, wormy brain, and a scattered brain. The residents and guests had a ball tasting the different brain flavors.

October 27, the community joined us for a night of murder mystery, fine dining, and door prizes. The Landmark Staff performed a murder mystery, “Café Murder” while our guests enjoyed a delicious meal prepared by the Landmark dining team. We had a lot of fun practicing the play and hope to do this again in the future.

October 30, family members joined their resident in a Halloween celebration, a murder mystery, family and resident dinner. The tables were decorated in cream tablecloths, orange napkins, and spiders in webs were placed in the center of the table. After dinner, staff performed “Café Murder” for the residents and family members.

October 31, residents and staff welcomed community children to the annual trick-or-treat night. Our theme this year was Willie Wonka and the chocolate factory. The Landmark Center was decorated from top to bottom including a chocolate fountain and “Fizzy” drinks. Landmark residents handed out candy to all of the little ghost and goblins. This is always a fun night.

Bus trips have including local shopping, November 1, and dinner in Martinsville, November 6. Residents welcomed local talent, Charles Bowman and Mike Hall.

Join us on November 18, for a resident/family Thanksgiving pie social beginning at 1:00 pm, in the game room. Stop by and visit us and enjoy a piece of pie and coffee.
