Food, Fun and Festivities at Pelican Landing’s ‘Riverbash’

VERO BEACH, FL, October 8, 2018 – The associates, family and friends of Pelican Landing Assisted Living and Memory Care Community gathered at Sebastian’s Riverside Park this month to enjoy a traditional outdoor cookout and entertainment. The festive event, dubbed ‘Riverbash,’ encouraged fun, relaxation and bonding outside of the community for Pelican Landing team members and their families.

Pelican Landing’s Executive Chef Al DeLeo manned the grill at Riverside Park, serving burgers and hot dogs with all the fixings, while the executive team set up a picnic with fresh salads, fruit, and scrumptious desserts. Guests of all ages competed in kayak races and paddled leisurely in the river, many of whom had never had the opportunity to kayak before.

Teambuilding events, such as ‘Riverbash,’ are a critical element of leadership training and associate development encouraged by Watercrest Senior Living Group, the owner and operator of Pelican Landing.
