How Do I ...

Marshall House

Resident Activities


Activities are important at Marshall House and provide residents with a quality of life that stimulates them to live longer. The Marshall House residents are also active in the community, volunteering at the hospital and schools and participating as members of area clubs, associations and senior groups.

The Marshall House Tenant Association Meeting is held on the last Monday of each month. Along with a copy of the meeting minutes, the Marshall House residents receive an Activity Calendar complete with all activities that residents can participate in for that particular month. Activities during the month include popcorn and a movie, a coffee house, Bible study, grocery BINGO and Euchre. A pot luck supper is held each month during the months of September through May. Special events are scheduled during the year such as ice cream socials, health and safety information meetings, musical programs and craft workdays. During the summer months the residents often gather for a cookout sponsored by the Marshall House staff.

On the first Thursday of the month, the Marshall District Library provides large print books, books-on-tape and video tapes for the resident's use throughout the month. Chair fitness exercises are held two times per week. There are three computers available for use by the residents; two with Internet and e-mail access.
