Glory Bound Band and Educational Moose Presentation

February 12th, 2020

The Glory Bound Band comes to Arbor Lakes to share their gift of gospel music. Their talents and kind souls lifted everyone up!

Following the Glory Bound Band concert, a few tenants decided to hang around for a little “after party.” One of them was Frank, who said he felt “like a stranger in paradise” surrounded by his friends. The group’s fun and non-stop laughter could be heard throughout the building. Such a beautiful thing it is to hear friends just enjoying each other’s company so much!

THE MOOSE IS LOOSE!

Naturalist Melonie Shipman came by Arbor Lakes Senior Living and for a very interesting and educational talk on these large and fascinating animals. Here’s a brief description of her
“Moose is Loose” presentation:

From the big-eyed white-tailed beauties in our Minnesota yards to the caribou of Alaska’s tundra and big-limbed moose of the north woods, lifelong naturalist Melonie Shipman has been engaged with the deer family for decades. This presentation explores their special adaptations and lifestyles as vegetarians who must manage long, snowy winters and multiple predators to survive. You may have seen these animals many times in-person or photos, and now you can look on them with new eyes as you learn the rest of the story.

We certainly had a spooktacular end to October! Check out photos from the Halloween festivities at Arbor Lakes Senior Living.

Children from around Maple Grove swung by for a fun, festive night of trick-or-treating. Everyone had a blast!

Arbor Lakes Senior Living welcomes the Allen Family

October 16th, 2019

Arbor Lakes Senior Living wants to thank the Allen Family for an outstanding and inspiring performance!

The Allens have been thrilling audiences worldwide with their unique blend of family harmony and energizing creativity for more than two decades.

In 1996, Todd and Michelle Allen began the journey to follow a call to full-time evangelistic ministry with their four young children, traveling all across North America in motorhomes and buses. With the addition of more voices came the innovative, modern sound that has captivated thousands. Now, after more than 20 years of ministry, The Allens continue to be one of the signature faces of the new Gospel music movement, making an impact for Christ around the world.

We owe a huge THANK YOU to our tenants David and Bev Birch for making this concert happen. They have been friends with the Allen Family for years. We are so lucky to have them take time in the busy tour schedule to stop here and perform.

We would also like to extend a huge THANK YOU to the Allen Family for including us on their tour. Their harmony, inspiring message of hope, and warm hearts lifted our spirits.

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!
