Paying Tribute and Making Art

December 16th, 2021

We are so proud of our Veterans here at Shoreview Senior Living. To show our gratitude and respect, we hosted a program in their honor that included music and a heartfelt message from our director.

It was a true privilege to recognize these Veterans in November, and we are so lucky to have them in our community.

Residents at Shoreview Senior Living wanted our service men and women to know that weโ€™re thinking about them this holiday season. Sending cards and notes is a great way to do that, so thatโ€™s exactly what we did.

Thank you to everyone who took the time to write a personalized note to a servicemember.

Art is a wonderful way to socialize, keep our creative juices flowing, relax, and create nice projects for ourselves, friends, and families. Some of our Southview residents recently got together to create with watercolor and catch up with one another.
