Valentine’s Day and Birthday Celebrations

February 27th, 2020

February was a busy but incredibly fun month here at The Willows! We even combined our Valentine’s Day and birthday celebrations for one mega-party. Check it out!

Earlier this month we had an extremely fun (and tasty) time frosting heart-shaped cookies to get ready for Valentine’s week! ❤️❤️

We had fun doing various crafts for Valentine’s Day including yarn-wrapped hearts, LOVE paintings, and heart magnets.

We combined Valentine’s Day and our February birthday party for one BIG and very fun celebration. Monroe Wright did a fantastic job entertaining – our residents loved singing, clapping, and even dancing along to his music. Happy birthday to Delores, Tom, Susan, Lori, Clayton, and Gail! ❤️🎊🎂

2019 Holiday Celebrations

January 10th, 2020

December was FULL of holiday celebrations! Who doesn’t love this time of year? We sure do around here at The Willows – just look at the fun we’ve been having!

From decorating the trees to making ornaments, December provided our residents with MANY opportunities to share their creative side!

Last month, third graders from Cedar Island Elementary School made dozens of gingerbread houses for us to enjoy on around our dining room this holiday season!

Thank you to everyone who attended the holiday party at The Willows of Arbor Lakes! It was incredibly special to see so many family members and to celebrate the holiday season with everyone!

Santa came to visit on Christmas Eve and spread holiday cheer throughout The Willows! 🎅

The Crimson Harmony singers from Maple Grove High School have performed for us every December since our community opened, and their music is always a highlight of our holiday season!

On December 20, we sang along to favorite Christmas songs during a performance by Amy & Adams while enjoying eggnog, gingerbread, holiday petit fours, and more!

Our residents loved hearing the Osseo Oriole Chamber Singers perform so much that they couldn’t help but sing along!

For the 2nd year in a row, we enjoyed a December performance from a lovely and talented string trio. One of the players is the great-niece of a resident here at The Willows of Arbor Lakes, which makes the music even more special!

Loren Wolfe swung by The Willows last month to help us celebrate our December birthdays. Happy (belated) birthday to Charlotte, Pat, Verna, and Joan!

End of fall fun at The Willows

December 2nd, 2019

Get caught up on the end of fall fun we’ve been having here at The Willows of Arbor Lakes!

It’s a bit late, but we wanted to share all the fun we had for Halloween this year! In the morning, we were “treated” to some reverse trick-or-treating from families of Living Word Church. Later that afternoon, we played Halloween bingo while enjoying spider truffles, candy corn, and other goodies. And to complete the day, we played pumpkin toss with ghost bean bags!

Here’s a quick video of one resident’s ROAR at the Halloween party!

To celebrate World Kindness Day on November 13, residents here at The Willows made Kindness Cards for each of our staff members to thank them for their hard work!

The residents worked hard cutting out “grateful hearts” and painting them to decorate the dining room for this month’s theme: “Give thanks with a grateful heart.”


We recently took a crack at Peanut Butter Pie. We love trying new recipes here at The Willows, and this one was a hit!

You can check out the recipe for yourself here: https://bit.ly/2XzGRIA


Our residents always enjoy having a treat together for social hour!
