One Busy November

November 20th, 2018

We’ve been having an enjoyable November at the Willows of Arbor Lakes. We loved listening to Vinnie Rose sing and play the guitar. Randy Rolloff helped us celebrate the birthdays of Mae, Joan J., Mary K., and Rita N. We honored our resident veterans with patriotic readings, songs, and a certificate. To top it all off, the kids from the Maple Grove Homeschool Group helped us make a fun turkey craft. Check out our pictures below from all these fun events!

Take a peek at all of the fun costumes and the best Halloween celebration!

On September 15, we join the Walk to End Alzheimer’s at Target Field in Minneapolis. Alzheimer’s is the sixth leading cause of death in the United States, killing more than breast cancer and prostate cancer combined. One in three seniors dies with Alzheimer’s or some form of dementia. The Alzheimer’s Association and Walk to End Alzheimer’s mission is to bring awareness, reduce the risk, and eliminate Alzheimer’s through research and care. You can help us by donating: http://bit.ly/2Bl2y7U or participating in the walk. Details here: http://bit.ly/2vOJVEg
