Veterans Invited to Attend Special Luncheon to Learn About Retirement Options

FORT MYERS, Fla. (May 6, 2010) — Military veterans and their spouses, men and women aged 55 and over, are invited to attend a free luncheon and tour at Shell Point Retirement Community on Friday, May 21. Members of the Shell Point Veterans Club will serve as hosts and hostesses at the event, which will include patriotic entertainment, a brief presentation about Shell Point, and a guided tour of the community.

“When my wife and I moved into The Woodlands at Shell Point in 2008, I was surprised by how many veterans lived here,” said Jack Hubbard, president of the community’s Veterans Club. “Many of these retired veterans were career military, but the majority spent just a few years in the service, especially during the years around World War II, the Korean War, and lately even the Vietnam War,” he said. “Although their service may have been a long time ago, we find that it was an important time in our lives and one we well remember. Meeting others who shared this experience is very uplifting and we enjoy getting together.”

Guests will learn about the numerous retirement options available at Shell Point during the luncheon presentation given by one of the community’s experienced retirement counselors who will explain the concept of lifecare and the numerous benefits received when becoming a resident at Shell Point.  Included in the visit will be a tour of the popular Shell Point Train Room, as well as other attractive amenities, plus decorated model units.
Admission to this event is free; however, seating is limited, so reservations are required and may be made by calling Maureen at 239-466-1131 or 1-800-780-1131.
