Living the Weller Life
– October 2020 –
Our social programming is a large part of the vibrant lifestyle for our Members. With all of the necessary precautions, our Members have been enjoying a variety of activities on a daily basis, safely. Finding new ways to participate in our themed days, fundraisers, crafts, trivia happy hours, and glorious parties is an honor for the social and activities teams at Marsh’s Edge. We still strive to make it possible for our Members to have the opportunity to try something new within the walls of our community, in a safe way.
For Day 3 of Active Aging Week, our Members took a private excursion to the Howfyl-Broadfield Plantation. Walking and being outdoors is good for the body and who doesn’t love to learn a few new things about their local area? 😊 This plantation represents the history of Georgia’s Rice Coast, something that began in 1913. The remaining heirs to the plantation bequeathed the plantation to the State of Georgia in 1973 where it is now used as a living history guide and museum. 🏡 It was a cooler, foggy day but perfect for exploring this plantation carved out of the Altamaha River.
We kicked off Active Aging Week with some good ole fashion competition! Our Members competed in the Marsh’s Edge Olympics and went for the gold! 🥇 Each manor competed against each other in a variety of events – water gun marksmanship, darts, and javelin throwing! 🎯 Each participant received one gold coin for competing, while the Members of the winning team each received two! Our competition will continue throughout the week with Members racking up coins for their team and the one who has the most by the end will receive a special Happy Hour celebration for their manor! 🍹🍸🥂
