Live Music, Nature Education, and Lots of Fun at Shoreview!

April 19th, 2019

We’ve been busy at Shoreview Senior Living. Check out some of the fun events at Shoreview from the last few weeks!

Interim HealthCare joined us for bingo. They not only called the numbers and provided prizes – they also led us in gentle exercises throughout the game. It was fun AND felt great!

These little canines sure can warm our hearts! We love spending time with Benny and Daisy. 🐶

The folks from Silverwood Nature Center gave us an informative session about birds and led us in making beautiful feathers out of clay. 🐦🐦🐦

We tapped our toes and sang along during our evening with the Pistachio Singers. There songs from the ’40s brought back many memories and their harmonies were beautiful! 🎤🎼

We love music, and time spent rockin’ with Tony is always a blast!

The theme for this month’s visit to the James J. Hill house was “Art Collections.”  We learned that James Hill was an avid collector of paintings.  We also viewed a special exhibit of Nicholas Brewer’s works that are currently on display at the J.J. Hill House.
