National Night Out and Other Summer Activities

August 16th, 2019

We can’t believe it’s already halfway through August! We’ve been enjoying the sunshine and warm weather. Check out photos from our National Night Out and other summer activities!

We took a walk to Central Park in Maple Grove last week to enjoy summertime snacks and the joy of the children in the splash pad. It’s hard to say who had more fun – the kids in the water or the tenants relaxing and taking in the good times!

Andy Nelson joined the activities team this summer as an Activities Assistant. So far he’s been leading musical programs for our memory care tenants and played piano in the lobby for everyone. We are lucky to have him as part of our team here at Arbor Lakes!

The National Night Out celebration here at Arbor Lakes included ice cream treats, a visit from the Maple Grove Police and Fire Departments, and a great Barbershop Quartet performance by Note’orious! We are so proud to be a part of the great city of Maple Grove with its sense of community and everything it has to offer!

July Birthdays, Patriotic Crafts, and Tropical Fun

July 25th, 2019

July birthdays, patriotic crafts, and tropical fun at Arbor Lakes Senior Living!

We celebrated our July birthdays with ice cream sundaes and an amazing performance by CODA! Everyone raved about CODA, and we hope they’ll come back again soon! 🎼🎷🎹

Dimension Studio came in to work with members of our “Happy Crafters” program on a patriotic wreath project.

We enjoyed a summer “Escape to Paradise Island” with music of the Caribbean and pina coladas, blue hawaiians, and bahama punch. All the fun gave everyone a great reason to wear their Hawaiian shirts and Muumuus. The aloha spirit filled the room!

As an added bonus, tenants Carol and Hugh celebrated their wedding anniversary with everyone at the event. Happy Anniversary you two!

Great Start to Summer at Arbor Lakes Senior Living

June 12th, 2019

Gardening crafts, an outdoor concert, and the summer’s first BBQ – what a great start to summer at Arbor Lakes Senior Living!

Our tenants made terra cotta pot people for a crafts program put on by Dimension Studio. Participants tapped into their inner artist and enjoyed lots of giggles in the process.

We had a perfect evening for an outdoor concert by the Dirty Shorts Brass Band. The weather was beautiful and the band was incredible! Everyone enjoyed an ice cream treat and the great outdoors while clapping and singing along. What a great way to kick off the summer!

Everyone enjoyed our first barbecue of the summer here at Arbor Lakes Senior Living!

May Music at Arbor Lakes

May 31st, 2019

Dancing, singing, and lots of fun with May music at Arbor Lakes!

The Arbor Lakes Choir put on an amazing performance for their Spring Concert, taking the audience on a journey as they “traveled in song” to many favorite destinations.

We had our very own Texas Cowboys handing out yellow roses to the audience as the choir sang “Yellow Rose of Texas,” and the audience joined in for a couple of sing-alongs, too. And of course, the entire show wouldn’t have been possible without our amazing and talented volunteer piano player, Karen! The evening was a big hit with everyone and the room was filled with song, music, and joy. 🎼🎤🎹

Gary LaRue recently gave a happy hour performance at Arbor Lakes, and he was amazing! He does a phenomenal job singing and entertaining the crowd. His humor and great personality immediately engaged the audience and had them laughing, dancing, and singing the whole time. We definitely look forward to the next time he comes back to perform!
