FORT MYERS, FL (October 14, 2009) – Shell Point Retirement Community will host a Fall Festival Open House on Thursday, October 29, from 1pm to 3 pm. This event is free and open to the public.

“Shell Point is such a unique place to live, we want to invite the public to come out and learn more about the lifestyle we have to offer,” said Lynn Schneider, assistant vice president of marketing and communications for Shell Point. The Fall Festival Open House will offer visitors the chance to view two of the three neighborhoods that make up Shell Point Retirement Community. Many activities have been planned for an afternoon of seminars, entertainment, and tours; while buses will provide transportation to all events and locations throughout the community.

The Open House will include tours of decorated models located in the Island and Woodlands neighborhoods that will offer visitors a look at the various sized units available to residents. Retirement counselors will be on hand in each model to answer specific questions, while others will present seminars explaining Shell Point’s lifestyle with lifecare model for retirement. There will be question-and-answer sessions after each presentation. “Visitors will receive a printed schedule of events and a map when they arrive so they can visit the areas or presentations they want to view or participate in,” said Schneider. “Since many of the activities will be held inside, the Open House will be held rain or shine.”
