Memorial Service

Memorial for all those we have lost. Deacon Tim from St. Odilia performed a memorable ceremony while Trudi blessed us with some beautiful hymns. We lit candles for each person we have lost.

“Sadly missed along life’s way, quietly remembered every day…

No longer in our life to share, but in our hearts, you’re always there.”

Indoor “Bonfire”

September 28th, 2016
Shoreview residents intended on having a real bonfire, but had to learn how to “dance in the rain” and have a makeshift indoor bonfire instead! The s’more making was quite the challenge, but we managed. They were still quite tasty, too!
It was great to have Andy back with his guitar. He is truly an amazing singer!! We can’t thank him enough for his time and dedication each month.

Apple Festival

September 21st, 2016

During our fall 2016 Apple Festival, Shoreview residents were treated to many treats from Aamotts Apple Farm. Residents tasted 10 different apple varieties as we did trivia about apples. We learned that thanks to the high levels of boron in apples, they can help improve your memory, mental alertness and electrical activity of the brain! Woohoo, bring on the apples!!

We even had an apple biting contest, where our resident director Luke, resident Maria and a family member showed us their skills. Was definitely the cause for many laughs!

Here’s a photo of a couple of our crafty residents that helped prepare for the Apple Festival!


Fun times had, and new memories made.

Recycled Crafts

September 16th, 2016

You will never look at junk the same!

Residents used their creativity while exploring and rummaging through “junk”. Their recycled creations were amazing and all told a story… okay, except for one! Bur had no idea what he created!! 🙂

We were amazed at what the residents were able to create using items that were otherwise thought of as random pieces of junk.  It was truly a fun and memorable project.

All the projects were out on display for a few days, and they got a lot of attention!
