The Landmark Center honored its individual volunteers with brunch on Friday, May 20. The theme this year was, “Mounds of Appreciation for all You Dew.” Each volunteer received a certificate of appreciation and a gift which contained a Mounds candy bar, a Mountain Dew, and Hershey Kisses.
We thank all our volunteers for sharing their time and talents with our residents. Without your assistance many of our activities would not be possible. If you would like to become a volunteer, please call (276) 694-3050, extension 4514.
The staff and residents of The Landmark Center would like to congratulate all those graduating this year. Special congratulations to the seniors of the cosmetology class at Patrick County High School. Throughout the year they visit our residents for Spa Day and have become friends with the residents. Good luck; we will miss you.
Landmark residents celebrated the May birthdays on May 20. Vernon Harris and Shelly Roberts provided uplifting entertainment while the residents, family, and friends enjoyed cake, ice cream, and punch. Grace Baptist Church donated the May birthday gifts for the residents.
Friday evening, May 13, Roger Wells and his wife Trina joined the residents and provided beautiful Southern Gospel music. Residents welcomed the groups “Livin Forgiven” and “Ronnie Trent and Friends,” Saturday afternoon, May 14, in the Landmark living room. The Sunday afternoon activity, lemonade, ice cream, and cookies, had to be moved inside to the game room due to rain. Residents and guests still enjoyed the refreshments.
Each Monday morning, residents fill the arts and crafts room eager to join in the singing and to hear the message brought by Fairystone Baptist Church and Charles Taylor. This faithful group of volunteers is beginning their 18th year of volunteering here. Sue Nester, a local favorite, entertained the residents after dinner, May 17.
The youth from Abiding Grace Church joined the residents Wednesday evening for game night. The residents and children always look forward to spending this time together.
