SHELL POINT ACADEMY PRESENTS CLASS ON ‘MAKING SHELL POINT COMMUNITY MY HOME’

FORT MYERS, FL (October 27, 2010) – The Academy at Shell Point will offer a class on “Making Shell Point Community My Home” on Tuesday, November 9 – 1:30pm, in The Woodlands at Shell Point.  Dawn Boren, Director of Resident Life; Mary Franklin, Resort Services Manager; and Teri Kollath, Academy and Volunteer Services Manager will discuss the lifestyle qualities of Shell Point.    Admission to the event is free, however, space is limited, so reservations are required and can be made by calling (239) 454-2054.

Shell Point is a resort-like retirement community, and most individuals who visit learn a lot about the Lifecare aspect that is offered to residents.  But there are so many amenities and activities offered in the community, that many residents say that they have “…to choose what not to do, because there is so much offered here.”

“Shell Point is great for so many reasons, one being the excellent lifecare and healthcare that are offered here,” said Kollath. “But what many don’t realize is how much more there is outside of the healthcare realm.  Every single day there are activities, volunteer opportunities, and clubs that meet and do so many exciting things, that it is impossible to get to all of them.”
