Landmark Village hosted its Fun in the Sun party July 30. Event organizers say the party proved to be an excellent forum for upholding the Sarnia retirement community’s cruise ship theme while raising money for worthy causes.
Staff members decorated the main hall and dining room with a summer theme and the staff and residents dressed in bright summer colours to go along with the event’s spirit.
There was musical entertainment with lots of dancing and a barbecue lunch was provided. The Landmark Village social committee organized a “walker wash” that raised $55 to be put towards future events at the home.
The owner of Lorraine’s Hair Studio in Sarnia gave haircuts with $80 in donations going to the MS Society.
Tania Bergen, Landmark Village’s sales and marketing director, says the event fell in line with Steeves & Rozema’s mission of “creating communities that are good for life” as well as the cruise ship model that Landmark Village was built upon.
“We always try to have a variety of activities going on – for example, we always have weekly entertainment, so we always try to have things going on like a cruise ship would,” she said.
Landmark Village’s fun co-ordinator Brent Hart remarks on the event.
“I was really pleased with the participation of staff and how well everyone worked together to make a wonderful afternoon for all the residents here at Landmark,” he says. “The day’s activities (were) great fun.”
