The Landmark Center honored their individual volunteers with a luncheon on Thursday, May 31. Each volunteer shared with the group what part they play as a volunteer before enjoying the delicious meal, which was prepared by the Landmark dining team.
Many of these volunteers have been at The Landmark Center for many years and faithfully come monthly or weekly. Each volunteer received a certificate and gift of appreciation. We would once again like to thank all of our volunteers; without you sharing your time and talent with our residents, we could not provide all the great activities we do, each one of you is unique and special. If you would like to become a volunteer at The Landmark Center stop by and fill out an application. We would love to add you to the Landmark family.

It is almost impossible to believe that it is already June. Where does the time go?
The month of June celebrates both Wonder Woman Day on June 3 and Superman Day on June 12; so it is called wonderful, super, and heroic. On June 15, we will also honor some super heroes, Fathers. We will have a cookout for all the Landmark men.
June 1, the residents welcomed singer Mike Hall after dinner. Mike has so much talent and his smile is uplifting and encouraging. Saturday morning, June 2, Pastor Dave Boarman joined the residents for a time of prayer and worship. In the afternoon residents celebrated Nation Rocky Road Ice Cream Day after Bingo.
Residents always look forward to the monthly Square Dance and the group, The Over the Hill Gang, the first Monday night of each month. Residents often join in the fun and dance to a tune or two.
