End of fall fun at The Willows


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!

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

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!

At The Willows of Arbor Lakes, we love Halloween! We had a blast celebrating with one another, and we were so thankful for the families from the Living Word homeschool group that came to visit us for Halloween this year. The kids did “reverse Trick-or-Treating” and brought candy for the residents. The residents loved seeing all the kids in costume, and the treats were a bonus.
