Plum Landing’s December Newsletter

Lighting of the Tree Celebration

We will be celebrating the start of the Christmas season with the Lighting of the Tree Celebration on Thursday, Dec. 4th. Join us for dinner at 5:30 pm, followed by a Chapel service at 7:00 pm with Rev. Will Ericson, and the Celebration starting at approximately 7:30 pm in the Dining Room. There will be cookies, eggnog, and Christmas songs. Please join us for what promises to be a fun evening!

Residents & Board of Directors Christmas Dinner    

I look forward to seeing all of the residents at this very special dinner on Thursday, Dec. 11th at 6:30 p.m. in the Dining Room. It’s a time to honor our residents and those serving as members of our Board of Directors. We want to say thanks to all of you who choose to call Plum Landing home. The Board volunteers their time and effort each year to help guide the operation of Plum Landing, and promote the mission of Plum Landing in the community. This dinner is our Christmas gift to you. Don’t forget to RSVP!

We’ll be serving a pizza buffet on the 2nd floor for lunch this day at 11:30 am, so we can prepare the  Dining Room for the evening’s festivities. This lunch is on us also!

Christmas Week and New Year Schedule

The office will be closed in observance of Christmas on Thursday, Dec. 25th, and there will be no Courtesy Car that day. The same schedule will apply New Year’s week. Bonnie will be in the Beauty Shop on Wednesday, Dec. 24th, that week. I hope everyone has a Merry Christmas, and a Happy New Year!

Aurora Christian is “Making Friends”

We are very excited to announce that Aurora Christian School has adopted Plum Landing for their “Making Friends” program. Every year the first grade class picks a place they would like to become friends with during the holiday season. Over the next couple of months, Mrs. Post and Mrs. Herbert’s class will send homemade holiday cards and treats to Plum Landing. The class dropped off Thanksgiving cards and a Veterans Day poster. The residents are very tickled to see all of the beautiful items show up at their door. We feel truly blessed to be chosen by such an amazing and talented group.

Feed My Starving Children

Several residents expressed an interest in “giving back” during the holiday season, so Kathy has arranged for us to help the Feed My Starving Children program. It is a non-profit Christian organization committed to feeding God’s children hungry in body and spirit. The approach is simple: children and adults hand-pack meals specifically formulated for malnourished children, and they ship these meals to nearly 70 countries around the world. We will be going Thursday, Dec. 18th, from 9:30 – 11:30 am. Our role will be to SIT and label boxes at the beginning of the line. We’ll get you back in time for lunch. We’ll leave a little before 9. Please sign up.
