Art Show and Fun Fall Activities

October 17th, 2019

We’ve been celebrating the season with a resident art show and fun fall activities this month. Check it out!

Arbor Lakes Senior Living recently hosted an art show highlighting the work of our very own artist, Frank K!

Frank shared with everyone his unique and imaginative artwork and educated us all in how he turns his creative ideas into art. Coming up, Frank will be displaying his artwork in galleries in New York and Miami. We are proud of our artist!


We recently did the scenic “Leaf Cruise” on the St. Croix River up in Taylors Falls. The trip gave us a full experience of nature, history of the river, a delicious lunch, and LOTS of fun with friends!


Last Friday, we were treated to a beautiful performance titled “Songs for Autumn – Brooding and Beautiful” by vocalist Bryan and pianist Jessica. Bryan is a family member to a past resident of our community, and he continues to perform and share his talent with all of us. Jessica was amazing as well, and together they put on an incredible show! 🎹🎤🎼

Story Time and Dock Diving Dogs

September 24th, 2019

More September fun at Arbor Lakes Senior Living with story time and dock diving dogs. Check it out!

Tenants having fun reading to the kids during story time with the Maple Grove Moms Club!

We took a trip to the “For the Love of Dogs/The Dog Tank” in Mendota Heights to cheer for our Chef Manager, Jean, her daughter, Liz, and their chocolate labs, Cora and Carson. They competed against other dogs in a dock diving competition. It was so fun to see all types of breeds come together to compete. We saw everything from a Yorkshire terrier from Nashville to labs and German shepherds. Both of Jean and Liz’s dogs did really well. Way to go, Cora and Carson!

Save The Date: 2019 Walk to End Alzheimer’s

September 20th, 2019

On September 28, Arbor Lakes Senior Living and the Southview Senior Communities team will be joining the Alzheimer’s Association Minnesota-North Dakota for the 2019 Walk to End Alzheimer’s at Target Field. There are 5.8 million Americans living with Alzheimer’s today, and that number is projected to rise to nearly 14 million by 2050. We’d love your help as we work to raise awareness, reduce risk, and eliminate Alzheimer’s through research and care. Learn more about donating and/or registering to walk. Together, we can fight to end Alzheimer’s!

Here are some photos from last year’s walk.

Performances, Play, and Prom at Arbor Lakes

September 20th, 2019

Performances, play, and prom fashion brought lots of entertainment and fun to residents at Arbor Lakes. Check it out!

Nashville singer-songwriter, Claudia Nygaard, performed for us here at Arbor Lakes Senior Living! Claudia is the niece of one of our tenants, Eloise Farmer. She has won numerous songwriting awards, including being named a winner at the prestigious Kerrville Folk Festival songwriting competition. We were so lucky to have her share her beautiful voice and musical talents with us while she was in town. Thank you, Claudia!

We were so lucky to have the Hanson Family perform for us at Arbor Lakes. Both parents are classically trained pianists, and all five of their children play piano. A couple of the kids play violin, too! What a talented and incredibly kind family that volunteered and gifted us with this concert. We can’t wait to have them back again to perform!

Everyone had SO much fun at the Chanhassen Dinner Theater’s amazing production of “Mamma Mia!”

Our Activities Assistant, Vicki Higgins, hosted a “vintage prom fashions show” for our residents in Memory Care. It was so much fun seeing all the fashions and how they’ve changed over the years. Everyone was smiling, laughing, and sharing fond memories of their proms and wedding days.
