Goodbye 2018, Hello 2019!

January 16th, 2019

The end of 2018 and beginning of 2019 has been spectacular at the Willows of Arbor Lakes. Rounding out December, music helped make the Christmas holiday extra merry for us. We were grateful for the Living Word Homeschool Group carolers, the Osseo Oriole Chamber Singers, and Maple Grove High School’s Crimson Harmony singers. We also enjoyed a string trio organized by the great-niece of one of our residents, a nine-year-old volunteer who played Christmas songs, and entertainment by Amy & Adams.

 

Our residents also enjoyed some hands-on holiday activities this season including making gingerbread houses and cinnamon ornaments.

 

At last, we said goodbye to 2018 and rang in 2019 with a fun New Year’s Eve party!

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