Spook-tacular Festivities

November 8th, 2018

At Shoreview Senior Living, we have been BUSY this fall season! We had a great time playing balloon “piñata” and creating junk pumpkins. The expressions on our pumpkins really made us laugh! We also had a Halloween party and spent time with Kindercare kids. Check out photos from these spook-tacular festivities!

Special Visitors | March Activities

March 22nd, 2018

This week at Shoreview Senior Living, we had lovely special visitors who were ready to share their love of music with the residents.

Visit from Saint Odilia

On Tuesday morning, the 4th grade students from Saint Odilia came to spend some time with the residents. Some kids made Easter wreaths for their doors, while others just spent some quality time talking with the residents. It was so special and rewarding. One group even sang “Let It Snow” as it began snowing outside. Father Stiles was visiting the same day for confessions with the residents. Kids thought it was cool to run into him. They were a terrific bunch of students, and we look forward to seeing them next week.

 

Trudi’s Irish Blessings

Trudi came in on Wednesday afternoon to help us continue celebrating this month’s Irish blessings. Residents sang along with all their favorite tunes and laughed at a few limericks. She even brought Aria, her grandson, with to help run the show.

 

“School House Rock” Performance

On Wednesday evening, Jill came in with her cast. They performed “School House Rock” for the residents. These kids were filled with talent and did a spectacular job. We are so grateful for the opportunity to have Jill and her crew come and do a rehearsal show before their big night. Thank you Jill for bring us such an amazing show!!

Crime Prevention and Mexico Orphanage

October 3rd, 2017

Tuesday we had Deputy Mike Sirvatka join us to talk about crime prevention, fraud and keeping yourself safe. Many asked questions and I even learned a thing or two!! It was wonderful information and we are grateful for taking the time to stop by. We hope to see you for dominoes!!

Later that afternoon residents enjoyed some apple treats while Beth and Joy Eidsor joined us as we viewed the pictures they took in Mexico at the Orphanage. So delightful to see the projects residents made and the smiles on the children’s faces! It was defiantly heartwarming to know we made such a difference. They even taught us a song in Spanish! As Beth and Joy thanked us, Kathy, who helped me get all our donations together, made a great comment, “It never could of happened with out you traveling all that way and giving your time and hearts.” It was a great way to end the afternoon!
