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!

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!
