Londonderry on the Tred Avon’s residents and team are always finding ways to bring the community together for fun on campus. After wrapping up their annual Summer Concert Series in September, Londonderry hosted a Casino Night in October to capitalize on the Eastern Shore’s beautiful fall weather before the arrival of colder temperatures.
On October 19th, more than 100 guests attended Londonderry’s [RS1] annual event. Attendees included residents, residents’ families, members of the Board of Directors, local elected officials, and other community members. This year’s Casino Night was Londonderry’s annual themed social event. Past offerings have included a Hoe Down, Oktoberest, Margaritaville and a Circus.
Upon arrival, guests walked the red carpet and were given $10,000 of fun casino cash to play table games, including craps, roulette, poker and blackjack. These games were led by a professional croupier who taught guests in need of instruction and told stories about working in the casinos.
A full live band entertained guests while they noshed on casino-themed appetizers and drinks, including a signature drink named, “The Poker Face.” Chocolate cigars, made by the Londonderry dining team, were also enjoyed.
“We received wonderful feedback from everyone who attended,” said Londonderry’s Director of Sales and Marketing, Rachel Smith. “Many attendees said this was our best annual event yet, and multiple guests even dressed the part! Each year, we try to pick a fun theme, and we are already thinking about how to top this year’s event in 2024!”
Londonderry wrapped up its annual Summer Concert series[RS2] in September. The Summer Concert Series features a variety of outdoor performances on campus from local and regional talent from June to September. 2023 performances included Rosewood, The Captial Effect Duo, The Rising Tide Band and the Jones Boys.
Planned by Londonderry’s Activities Coordinator, Erica Hardeo, the Summer Concert Series is a favorite of both residents and team members. Attendees enjoyed Eastern Shore summer nights with refreshments and offerings from local food trucks, which were a new addition this year.
“Londonderry is committed to fostering a healthy, active and close-knit community,” said Hardeo. “With the help of residents, our campus maintains a full activities calendar[RS3] , where residents establish connections with their neighbors and make friends that become family.
