This month, Williamsburg Landing is participating in the Alzheimer’s Association’s Walk to End Alzheimer’s on October 22nd. Our team of staff and residents has risen over $8,000 for the organization and has set a goal of raising $13,000 before the event.

Bond... James Bond


Residents danced the night away at our James Bond 007 event on Wednesday evening. Virginia Beach band “Skylark” played live music while residents danced and enjoyed martinis and champagne. There was also a guest appearance by actor “Sean Connery” who was the first individual to play Bond in a movie. 

Greater Williamsburg United Way

During Williamsburg Landing’s 18th annual “stuffin’ parties”, 130 resident volunteers assembled letters for the Greater Williamsburg United Way. Over 16,200 letters were mailed and volunteers worked a combined 290 hours on this project. Residents worked three full days in the month of September to help United Way in their advocacy efforts.
