Linda McCluskey joined the Timbers of Shorewood as the new director of activities. She will choose, plan and coordinate a variety of events and activities for the residents of the retirement community. Many of the events are open to the public as well.
“I am inspired every day by the older adults who live at the Timbers,” she said. “I am planning lots of new activities and events that hopefully will please everyone. There’s so much out there – travelogues, music, dance, health topics and more. It’s a joy to plan exciting events.”
She comes to her new job with an abundance of experience. Most recently, she was the life enrichment coordinator with Pleasant View Lutheran Home in Ottawa. Prior to that, she was the recreation supervisor for the Village of Shorewood.
She received a bachelor’s degree in Recreation and an MBA, both from University of St. Francis, Joliet.
McCluskey and her family live in Crest Hill. Her husband, Ronald McCluskey is a police sergeant with the Village of Manhattan. Their son, William McCluskey is the IT coordinator with Channahon Park District and Channahon Fire Department.

Residents whose needs may change are able to stay in the same place and receive appropriate and compassionate care.
