Enjoying the Final Beauty of Summer in August

August 30th, 2019

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!

We recently had an Animal Ambassadors show here at Arbor Lakes! Everyone enjoyed the educational presentation showcasing some adorable exotic animals. It was so interesting to learn about each animal and where they can be found. And as an added bonus after the show, everyone was treated to a Pearson’s candy bar.

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!

Fly Like an Eagle Paper Airplane Contest

Our residents gathered to create their own paper airplanes. Each pilot sent their airplane to flight, soaring from the 2nd-floor balcony to the lobby. The first flight competition was aimed at a distance, and in the second, residents tried to land their planes on or near a target. Ray H. won the distance contest, and Lynette won the target contest. We all had a great time!
