July Silverwood Nature Center Visit!

July 31st, 2017

So fun to see so many turn out for Silverwood Nature Center! They joined us this month and talked about the 10,000 lakes in Minnesota and its fishes. We learned Wisconsin says they have more lakes but they count pot holes as lakes (LOL), but MN does have more Acreage of water. Fun to hear about the residents fishing stories and outdoor adventures here in MN. They later made a journal for all their stories and memories. Jim didn’t waste any time, and started his story right away! Thank you for another special day!

July 26th, 2017

Special thanks to Cindy and Lisa from Interim who hosted an Ice Cream Social for everyone. Luke the Housing Director also brought in his F3 Procharged 67 Nova for residents to see. Gail our house keeper looked pretty good sitting in the drivers seat. Luke explained all the details of the car and some history behind his racing. His father grew up racing and Luke followed suit with a strong interest starting at age 12. He and his dad built his current car in 6 months. Looks amazing!! He told us his fastest time from dead stop was 208 mph in 6.7 seconds. WOW!!!

Planters for our Volunteers!

July 24th, 2017

This afternoon residents filled the planters which they painted for our wonderful and dedicated volunteers. They put in a variety of “angel plants” and added their special touch to each one. We love you Volunteers, thank you!!!!

Dedicated hearts like yours are not so easy to find. It takes a special person to be so generous and kind.

To be a volunteer, it takes…

Generosity, a willingness to give your time to others. Understanding, because their lives might be very different from your own. Empathy, an ability to put yourself in someone else’s shoes and feel what they must feel. Compassion, to truly care about making someone else’s life better. Patience, because the process doesn’t always go as smoothly as it might. Dedication, to stick with the project and see it through. So thank you for being a volunteer, we’re privileged to work with you. We want you to know how appreciated you are, Not just today, but the whole year through!!!

Some used shells too, Donny made a fish on the rocks, while Jim made more of a rock sculpture. Perfect craft to get the imagination going and to think about the lake shore
