Playing Match Game at Arbor Lakes

March 13th, 2020

We recently held our first “Match Game” event based off the popular television game show. Our Residence Director, Bjorn Horgen, did an excellent job as the host. Arbor Lakes Senior Living tenants were the contestants, and our staff and a family member played as the “celebrities.” Prizes were awarded to the winners, and there were some crazy answers and plenty of laughs – everyone had so much fun no matter what! Tenants are already requesting we do this again soon, so stay tuned for the next round of Arbor Lakes Match Game!

New Year’s Eve Party 2019 and Cuba Presentation

January 30th, 2020

Arbor Lakes ended the year with a bang at the 2019 New Year’s Eve party. We also got to learn about a trip one of our tenants recently took to Cuba with his family. Check it out!

We all welcomed 2020 with an extra-special New Year’s Eve party that was also a birthday celebration for tenants Leroy and Marjean! At the party, the “Somewhat Dixieland Band” led us through song and dance with some great Dixieland style music. We also enjoyed delicious appetizers, a champagne toast and countdown, and a great time with friends.

Happy New Year, and happy birthday to Leroy and Marjean! 🥂🎊🎂🎉

Earlier this winter, one of our tenants, Jack Parisian, took a trip to Cuba with his family. Jack’s daughter and son-in-law recently came by Arbor Lakes Senior Living to present a photo slideshow and share lots of interesting facts and fun details from the family’s trip. Everyone loved the opportunity to “travel” to Cuba through their eyes and wonderful experiences!

Embracing the Christmas Spirit

December 30th, 2019

It’s the most wonderful time of the year, and we’ve really been embracing the Christmas spirit here at Arbor Lakes. Check out all the fun we’ve been having this holiday season!

The String Trio performed for our tenants over lunch last Thursday. There’s nothing quite like the sound of strings bringing beautiful music to our ears during the holiday season. What an incredible gift!

Earlier this month, a group of us toured the halls here at Arbor Lakes Senior Living to check out all the beautiful Christmas decorations. Some tenants left their doors open and invited us in to see their Christmas trees and décor. We finished the tour in the 2nd floor community room with a holiday social that included singing Christmas songs. The halls were filled with the joy and magic of the season!

The Maple Grove Moms Club came to visit and spread lots of holiday joy to all!

We had an amazing trip to the Yellow Tree Theatre in Osseo to see “Another Miracle on Christmas Lake.” We sang Christmas songs together on the bus trip and shared many laughs during the Christmas play. ‘Tis the season to be jolly!

It’s the most wonderful time of the year!

We are so thankful for all the musical groups we’ve had perform for us here at Arbor Lakes Senior Living this holiday season. They have been simply amazing! Here are a few of the groups we were lucky enough to have swing by: Osseo High School Jazz Band, Champlin Park High School Jazz Band, Osseo Chamber Singers, and the Maple Grove High School Crimson Harmony Choir.

Singing around the Christmas tree and spreading holiday cheer on Christmas Eve! 🎄

Last Friday was full of great entertainment! Jim Gerber, who is the son-in-law of our tenant, Janet Barrett, wowed the crowd with a great “American Standards & Gospel” performance! Later that afternoon, students from KMC Dance put on a terrific and wildly entertaining holiday show.
