National Night Out and Other Summer Activities

August 16th, 2019

We can’t believe it’s already halfway through August! We’ve been enjoying the sunshine and warm weather. Check out photos from our National Night Out and other summer activities!

We took a walk to Central Park in Maple Grove last week to enjoy summertime snacks and the joy of the children in the splash pad. It’s hard to say who had more fun – the kids in the water or the tenants relaxing and taking in the good times!

Andy Nelson joined the activities team this summer as an Activities Assistant. So far he’s been leading musical programs for our memory care tenants and played piano in the lobby for everyone. We are lucky to have him as part of our team here at Arbor Lakes!

The National Night Out celebration here at Arbor Lakes included ice cream treats, a visit from the Maple Grove Police and Fire Departments, and a great Barbershop Quartet performance by Note’orious! We are so proud to be a part of the great city of Maple Grove with its sense of community and everything it has to offer!

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!

Easter Egg Hunt

April 12th, 2019

Arbor Lakes tenants had a blast looking for hidden Easter eggs. Each egg they found could be returned to our Activities Director, Keri-Lynn, to redeem a prize. Tenant Ray K. found the golden egg and received the largest prize: an Easter basket full of goodies, a stuffed bunny, and a gift certificate. We wish all of you a Happy Easter! 🐰🥚
