Fellowship Day

Fellowship & Gratitude 2018

Three words describe Fellowship Day this year: Joy, Community and Teamwork. Joy permeated the atmosphere under the big white tent and surrounding areas as residents, team members and friends of Landis Homes gathered together in a celebration of community. Teamwork showed through the many sponsors, patrons, volunteers, residents and team members who made the day possible.

September 8, 2018, marked the 46th Annual Fellowship Day event and the 20th year for the Benefit Auction. This year’s net proceeds to the Caring Fund from Fellowship Day totaled over $141,000! The early morning rain and cool temperatures did not dampen anyone’s spirits this year. The Share-A-Meal Adventure  line of eager residents formed at 5:30 a.m. Bidding began with the Gift Baskets and Silent Auction and continued through the Live Auction.

Highlights of the day included Fill the Gap, where donors gave $49,065, successfully meeting the two challenge goals. In the Specialty Items area, Fannie Frey’s Six Months of Famous Pecan Pies went for $4,000. None of this would have been possible without many generous bidders!

A true sense of community reigned over campus and laughter could be heard from families and friends sharing BBQ chicken or a hot cup of coffee together. Love was evident through bountiful giving and connections remade. Thank you to all who shared in the joy, community, and teamwork! Please clear your calendar for September 14, 2019, for our next Fellowship Day!
