Silverwood Nature Center, Pontoon Ride, & Other Fun Events

August 20th, 2021

Shoreview Senior Living residents recently visited Silverwood Nature Center to learn about our Minnesota Lakes. The Nature Center is part of Silverwood Park, which integrates nature and art with its open green spaces with gorgeous lake views, art gallery, outdoor amphitheater, and collection of hiking trails. It’s a great place to learn and explore, and we did exactly that.

Our residents also took home a very special art project. Everyone got their very own screen print of our handcrafted lake scene.

There are few better ways to spend a morning than with a relaxing pontoon boat ride. Our captain chauffeured Shoreview Senior Living residents around White Bear Lake and shared with us an abundance of history about the lake and its surrounding homes and towns.

The weather was perfect, and the company was even better!

Residents of Shoreview Senior Living were recently inspired by Deacon Jim’s messages during morning Mass. We all enjoyed his uplifting words as well as readings and prayers. He also tells some pretty good jokes, which keeps us all on our toes.

Jim and Dan are among our extremely talented musicians at Shoreview Senior Living. Recently, residents were treated to a performance by this gifted duo. Jim and Dan served as the musical act for one of our Thursday entertainment events, and residents packed the room to hear them play. Everyone had a fabulous time, tapping toes and bobbing heads while singing along to the music.

Thank you to Jim and Dan for such an amazing show!
