The Art Fusion Discussion Group met at The Landmark Center on March 8. It was a beautiful warm sunny day, so the group met in the courtyard. The topic centered on spring, Saint Patrick’s Day, and Easter.
Beth Ford, historical services assistant, and volunteer Becky Turner from the Reynolds Homestead provided postcards for the residents to view and reminisce. The residents loved being outside and as always; they enjoyed this program very much.
Thursday morning, March 10, local artists Ursula Allen and Norma Bozenmayer led the Community Art Class. Residents decorated their own ceramic pots and painted the wooden tulip which they “planted” in the pot. They also created paper leaves which they attached to the flower stem. Residents placed these flowers in their rooms as a springtime decoration.
Landmark residents traveled out for breakfast March 8, and bowling on the afternoon of March 10. March 15, they went to Stanleytown for live music and breakfast. March 17, they enjoyed local shopping. The promise of spring is in the air which makes the trip almost as much fun as the destination.
After missing two months due to snowy weather, the cosmetology class from Patrick County High School was able to be here for Spa Day on March 15. Residents always look forward to talking with these young ladies and getting a complete manicure.
Residents and guests celebrated Saint Patrick’s Day with music, dancing, and refreshments March 17. After dinner, residents enjoyed selections presented by the Community Easter Choir.
Friday, March 18, The Landmark Center hosted the free community event, “Thrive & Survive.” Virginia Tech osteopathic med students and physicians provided free health screenings and consultations.
