An Amazing Start to Summer at Willows of Arbor Lakes

June 7th, 2019

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!


Monroe Wright’s performance on Friday was a hit!

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!

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