On June 15, Eagan Pointe Senior Living celebrated its 7th anniversary! Typically, gifts for a copper anniversary are copper (?) and wool, to symbolize warmth.

Louis played his harmonica along to the music and invited Barb and Mary Lou to dance. This trio surely put the “happy” in happy hour during this event!

Garden Cove residents at Eagan Pointe Senior Living prepared for summer flowers with some arts and crafts. We grabbed our brushes, tapped into our creativity, and added color and flair by painting flower pots.
