Happy Hour


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!

Our neighbors, the Kindercare Kids, shared a creative dance with us and led us in a fun game of bingo!

Kicking off summer at Shoreview Senior Living with a boat trip and lots of live music!

We love to gather on Friday afternoons for happy hour as we visit with one another and listen to great music!

The Metro Men delighted us with barbershop music and even some pretty funny stories!

We love our Friday happy hours! Chefs John and Holly spoil us with their tasty hors d’oeuvres!

The presentation about St. Paul Gangsters was fascinating! We learned so much during the program, and our own residents had LOTS to share about their own neighborhoods back in the day.

Filling the eggs for the egg hunt was full of many wonderful memories! We talked about Easter celebrations that we remembered with our friends and family.

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!

Happy Hour with Tony Gary

Friday turned out to be a great afternoon when Tony Gary joined us for happy hour. Kristy had her bubble machine ready when he sang “Tiny Bubbles”, which brought many smiles. We also enjoyed mini sandwiches and cool beverages – what more could you want on a hot steamy day!

 

Parade Prep

Today we got ready for the Slice of Shoreview Days Parade. Joy came in to help us make some sassy and fun shades to wear on our ride. We had a few volunteers paint our sign, too. Everyone was so creative and found many treasures to attach! Don’t they look great?

 

Fun Games

We held our monthly auction and kicked it up a notch with some fun games for “big” prizes. The residents loved the pie in the face game. It was an hour full of laughs and good times.
