Celebrating Retirement, Volunteers, and More at Shoreview

April 30th, 2019

There was a lot to celebrate at Shoreview Senior Living this month, including our friend Linda’s retirement and all the volunteers we appreciate so much. Check it out!

Entertainment, cake, and thankfulness were the ingredients for a fun-filled afternoon as we wished Linda all the best in her retirement. She will be missed!

Making gifts for our volunteers and the upcoming Volunteer Appreciation event was both fun and important to us. We wanted to show our thanks to these special people!

The turn out and music for our Volunteer Appreciation event certainly helped make it incredible. We can’t thank our volunteers enough for all they do for our residents and community here at Shoreview Senior Living!

Friday mornings get off to a great start with our weekly Bible study class. Recent topics have been “Heaven” and “Women of the Bible.” There is much to learn and discuss!

Celebrating Easter in a very special way! We were thankful to have an Easter service right here at our Shoreview Senior Living Community. We sang hymns, heard the message, and shared in the liturgy.

Our Kindercare visitors were a breath of fresh air as they laughed with us, sang for us, and shared much excitement in their hunt for Easter eggs.  We love spending time with our young friends!

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.

Good Times in July

Another month just flew by! Residents participated in the Slice of Shoreview Days parade, celebrated birthdays, and enjoyed many good times in July.

Slice of Shoreview Days Parade

On Saturday morning, Shoreview Senior Living participated in the Slice of Shoreview Days parade! It turned out to be a beautiful day. Rockin’ Tony made this day even more special by joining us on the float. Thank you to all who helped make this event happen. Be sure to check us out on CTV North Suburbs online. We also wanted to give a shout out to DARTS Aging and Caregiving Resources transportation for all their time and dedication!

 

90th Birthday

This is where the memories begin. A family celebrating their mom’s and friend’s 90th Birthday.

 

Yoga, Trivia, and Volleyball

We started the day with a game of volleyball, then we played a little trivia out on the patio in the afternoon. Residents enjoyed a bit of ice cream while testing their knowledge. Once they were filled up, we went inside to do some relaxing yoga with Nancy. We can’t thank you enough, Nancy, for your time and dedication! We all had a wonderful afternoon.

 

Silverwood Nature Center

Silverwood Nature Center visited again and talked about farmers markets. Residents were able to share their stories of canning their favorite veggies and fruit, as well as their days on the farm. They also created a berry bowl from clay which will be fired in the kiln and brought back next month for them to enjoy!

 

Fishing

Monday was such a busy day. A group of residents headed out to White Bear Lake to go fishing. We couldn’t ask for a more beautiful day! Everyone caught a fish! Ricardo caught the smallest fish, and Donna pulled in the largest fish. When we docked, residents enjoyed some lunch by the lake. Thank you, Ted, Kathy, and Julie for a terrific morning. Bear Boating of White Bear Lake, MN is a wonderful organization!
