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!

Enjoying the season while we still can! David and Beverly love sitting out on the front porch daily and soaking up the final beauty of summer.

Vern and Larry spend time daily in the Pub putting together challenging puzzles. Everyone is amazed at how fast they can finish a puzzle!

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!
