Alzheimer’s Association Fundraisers & More

September 6th, 2019

We’re coming into the end of summer, but the fun continues here at Shoreview! This month, we’ve held Alzheimer’s Association fundraisers, learned about nature, and much more. Check it out!

To raise money for the Alzheimer’s Association, our residents and staff donated items for a “happy hour auction.” A fun afternoon fundraising for a great cause!

More fundraising for the Alzheimer’s Association! On August 21, everyone enjoyed a delicious meal, reminisced, and shared memories during our old-time, ’50s-themed BBQ fundraiser.

We love the monthly visits and lessons with our friends from Silverwood Nature Center! We get to learn so much about nature, and then apply it to the art we create that day.

A change of plans due to rainy weather can be a bummer. But when that change involves ice cream and music, life is good! 🎤🍦🎼

Trudi brings us sunshine each month with her love of music. For August, she brought us an afternoon at the state fair!

We are thankful for this couple, Tony and Irmi. They spend a LOT of time in the back garden, and we all reap the rewards!

This month’s lesson and craft with Silverwood Nature Center taught us about the importance of sunlight in nature.

Monday morning bingo with friends is a great way to start the week!

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!

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.
