Mother’s Day and Other May Celebrations at Arbor Lakes Senior Living

May 17th, 2019

Spring has been off to a fun and busy start here at Arbor Lakes Senior Living! Check out some photos from the Mother’s Day and other May celebrations we’ve had so far.

 

This past Sunday, we celebrated the never-ending love and bond of motherhood. Once again, we want to wish a happy (belated) Mother’s Day to all the mothers, grandmothers, and great-grandmothers at Arbor Lakes Senior Living!

We had a magical and magnificent Mother’s Day celebration here at Arbor Lakes! We celebrated all Mothers with sweet treats, beverages, and a magical performance by Magician Markus Clegg. Markus wowed the crowd with his sleight-of-hand tableside magic and show tricks. We hope all mothers had a very happy Mother’s Day!

Memory Care Mother’s Day tea!

One of our Activities Staff, Vicki Higgins, hosted a beautiful Mother’s Day tea party for Arbor Lakes tenants. Vicki collects antiques and provided some of her beautiful serving pieces for the tea. She also shared some of the unique and interesting history of the collectibles with the tenants. It was a special tea party honoring our special moms here at Arbor Lakes.

Arbor Lakes tenants loved making greeting cards with our great volunteer, Katy!

Happy May birthdays! We celebrated the May birthdays with an astounding performance by Monroe Wright. He dazzled the crowd with his amazing voice, dance moves, and songs to sing along with.

We were “over the moon” with our puppy visits! Our Chef Manager, Jean, and her daughter, Liz, raise Labrador Retrievers. This week, we were lucky enough to meet their one-year-old Chocolate Lab, Cora, along with one of their seven-week-old puppies.

Throughout the spring and summer, Jean, Liz, and their dogs travel to dock diving competitions and confirmation shows on the weekends. Their dogs have won many first place ribbons and will be competing in the 2019 NADD/AKC National Championships in Orlando this December. We wish them the best of luck in all their competitions this year!

Ground Hogs, Ventriloquists, and Valentine’s – Oh My!

February 15th, 2019

It’s been a fun month so far at Arbor Lakes Senior Living. We celebrated Ground Hog Day and Valentine’s Day, and had a ventriloquist visit us in between. Check out all of the action.

Tenants from Arbor Lakes were challenged to work in teams to find the groundhogs throughout the building. They were given a list of riddles and clues to help lead them to the groundhog sightings. The first team to make it back with all of the groundhogs won first place! Way to go everyone!

Giggles and laughs filled the community room with a great performance from Ventriloquist Kevin Doely.

Love was in the air at Arbor Lakes Senior Living on Valentine’s Day. Everyone was treated by delicious sweet temptations and a beautiful performance of “Heart and Soul” love songs by Tara Brueske.

Our Month of December

January 16th, 2019

We had a great month of December leading up to our New Year’s Eve party. Great music, delicious food, and holiday spirit filled the rooms of Arbor Lakes Senior Living at our holiday/anniversary celebration! The Arbor Lakes tenant choir brought joy to our holiday season with their beautiful voices! The room was filled with proud families and fans that came to applaud the performances and show their support at the concert.

 

We even had more special entertainment. The Osseo Chamber singers sang some favorite Christmas songs for everyone! The tenants enjoyed that, as well as the Christmas story with Russ, a holiday dice game, and singing Christmas songs by the tree on Christmas Eve.

 

Here, we are singin’ around the Christmas tree on Christmas Eve.

 

At last, we said goodbye to 2018 and hello to 2019. Our New Year’s Eve party was incredibly special this year. Everyone brought in the new year with the Sanok Jazz Band, appetizers, and a countdown to 2019!

At Arbor Lakes Senior Living, we are loving the holiday festivities. From watching the beautiful Nutcracker ballet to creating our very own Christmas centerpieces, we have been so busy spreading holiday cheer. Check out the details below from these fun holiday celebrations!

The magic of Christmas came to Arbor Lakes with the North Ballet Youth Company performing The Nutcracker ballet. What a beautiful way to kick off the holiday season!

 

Our tenants had the opportunity to use their creative skills and create Christmas centerpieces to decorate their tables with this holiday season. They were simply beautiful!

Veteran’s Day and Pet Therapy

November 29th, 2018

We have had a couple of fun celebrations this past month including a tribute program for our veterans and a day of pet therapy for our residents.

To start it off, we honored our veterans with a tribute program and performance by the Minneapolis Police Band. On behalf of all of us at Arbor Lakes Senior Living, we would like to thank our veterans for their service to our country and for making us proud to be Americans. We salute all of the veterans.

We are so lucky to have pet therapy visits each month with Colby and Shawn. They bring a lot of joy to those they visit. Colby also wows our residents with some tricks.
