Farewell Celebration, Earth Day Treat, & Kentucky Derby

May 18th, 2021

Eagan Pointe Senior Living residents and staff showed up to a small but significant farewell celebration for one of our dedicated team members.

Jake’s last day was April 30. Everyone wished him luck on his new adventure, and we celebrated with cake and plenty of smiles.

Congratulations, Jake. We will miss you, but we wish you all the best!

For Earth Day, residents at Eagan Pointe Senior Living had a great time playing in the “mud” while creating a tasty and sugary treat.

In our Garden Coves, we made dirt cups using pudding, crushed Oreo cookies, and gummy worm candies. Residents enjoyed mixing the ingredients, with layers of deliciousness for the worms to “crawl” through.

Playing in the mud has never been so entertaining or edible. 😋

The renowned Kentucky Derby takes place annually on the first Saturday of May. This year, we decided to “horse around” and get in on the fun with a Kentucky Derby Day at Eagan Pointe Senior Living.

We served mint juleps, the signature drink of the Kentucky Derby, and asked residents to dress for the occasion by wearing a fancy or fun hat.

As you can see, our attire and accessories made for an exciting afternoon.

St. Patrick’s Day Spirit & Retirement Celebration for Char

April 9th, 2021

The St. Patrick’s Day spirit was certainly present at Eagan Pointe last month thanks to some crafty residents and thoughtful gifts from a family member.

Residents of our Garden Cove units created lovely leprechauns for fun, festive decorations. The daughter of our friend and community member, George F., also donated medical-grade surgical masks with St. Patrick’s Day prints for our staff to wear on the holiday. Thank you for the amazing and very kind gifts! Who needs lucky clovers when you’re surrounded by such incredible, caring people? 💚☘

We had a bittersweet day at Eagan Pointe when we celebrated the retirement of friend and associate, Char. She was a member of our housekeeping team for nearly 4.5 years and we are so lucky to have had her as part of our community. We can’t thank her enough for all the hard work, compassion, and dedication she’s provided us over the years!

Char will be moving to Arizona in August and will be greatly missed by our associates and residents. Please join us in congratulating and wish Char a very happy retirement!

70th Wedding Anniversary Celebration

January 29th, 2021

One of Eagan Pointe’s resident couples, Stuart and Frances U., had their 70th wedding anniversary on January 18!

To help them celebrate such an amazing day, our residents and associates sang “Happy Anniversary” and presented them with a cake to enjoy together. They were also kind enough to share insights into their long, successful, and happy marriage:

Where did you meet?

We’ve known each other since we were children attending different grade schools, but we started dating when Frances became a teacher at the county school in Lennox, South Dakota.

Where did you get married?

St. Magdalen’s Catholic Church in Lennox.

What is your secret for being married 70 years?

Patience, fortitude, and putting the other head of yourself.

They have 4 children, 6 grandchildren, and 4 great-granddaughters with a 5th on the way. Please join us in congratulating and wishing a very happy anniversary to Frances and Stuart! ❤🎉🎂

Stuart and Frances U. had their 70th wedding anniversary on January 18.

After celebrating their 70th wedding anniversary, Eagan Pointe couple Stuart and Frances U. sent a lovely thank you note to our Residence Director, Renee:

“Thank you for honoring us on our 70th anniversary. It was a highlight of our day, since we couldn’t have a party or celebrate with our families and friends due to the pandemic.

I remember what you said, Renee, when we moved into our apartment 5-1/2 years ago: ‘Now this is your new home at Eagan Pointe, and the people living here will be like a new family.’
How true this has turned out to be!

We thank you and the staff for taking time off from their work, taking pictures, singing an anniversary song, and for the delicious cake we shared with some of our neighbors.

The pictures are very nice, and our family is already appreciating them.
Our thanks and appreciation to everyone.” -Fran and Stu

We are so happy to hear you enjoyed the celebration, Frances and Stuart! We’re so lucky to have such amazing people in our close-knit, supportive community, and we loved the opportunity to honor celebrate you both on such an incredible day.
