It’s been an amazing start to summer here at the Willows!

Residents have painted flower pots with planted marigold seeds in them, planted flowers in the planters on our patio, and just relaxed while enjoying the sunshine!


On Thursday, May 23, the fourth graders from Cedar Island Elementary School came to sing for us at the Willows of Arbor Lakes. We were incredibly touched by their talent, organization, and kindness. Their singing brought smiles to all our faces, and we loved singing along to the familiar songs!


We are thankful for the warmer weather and the chance to get outdoors!
