The 2020 Eagan Pointe Winter Carnival was full of fun events, including our 2nd annual puzzle race and our coronation ceremony. Check it out!
Eagan Pointe recently celebrated its 2020 Winter Carnival with several fun events! One morning, tenants were served their breakfasts by a lovely group of Saint Paul Vulcans. They made sure each tenant received their food with a mark on their cheek. Stay tuned for more posts about our 2020 Winter Carnival!

This year, we held our 2nd annual puzzle race as part of the Eagan Pointe Winter Carnival. Our 2020 winners included Nurses Sarah, Michell, and Shailla, as well as Assistant Residence Director Mickey. They finished their puzzle in just NINE minutes flat, and other participating residents weren’t far behind them! Check out their masterpieces. 🧩
The final event of our 2020 Winter Carnival was the coronation. We recognized our 2020 medallion hunt winner, Howard Hinseth, for finding the medallion hidden within Eagan Pointe. We also congratulated our 2020 puzzle race champions Sarah, Michelle, Mickey, and Shailla.
And lastly – for the main event, of course – we crowned our 2020 king and queen. Former queen, Donna, and a few past kings passed their crowns to our new king and queen, George Failes and Ruby Lee. A merry time was had by all, and King George and Queen Ruby are ready to take on the year as leaders at Eagan Pointe!

We were able to spread LOTS of holiday cheer thanks to some amazing Christmas Musical performances here at Eagan Pointe Senior Living!
The “Eagan Pointe Carolers” really helped spread holiday cheer around our building this season! The group is made up of Eagan Pointe tenants and is led by our activity coordinator, Nichole. This year, they sang for diners in the dining room and for all three memory care floors. We are so thankful to have such talent right here in our community!
Group members include: Kitty J., Lois K., Susan R., Caren L., MaryAnne W., Yvonne K., Joan D., Jewell S., Marilyn J., Bill H., and Roger J.
The Eagan High School Jazz Band made its annual visit to Eagan Pointe. The performance included some classic jazz numbers as well as some jazzy Christmas carols. The show is always so wonderful!

We hosted our 5th annual Alzheimer’s Association Fundraiser BBQ on Tuesday, August 13. Each staff department pulled together a basket to raffle off, and our 2019 Queen Donna Gerber graciously chose the raffle winners for us.
Local businesses also donated items to be used as part of a silent auction. Many tenants, family members, and friends joined us for a night full of fun, delicious BBQ food, and fundraising for a great cause! In total, we raised $4,131 for the Alzheimer’s Association.”
Home Health Aid, Tamika, and Eagan Pointe Tenant, Jim K., were enjoying the beautiful summer sun on the community room balcony.
An agency that works with the homeless in Minneapolis reached out to Eagan Pointe for volunteers to roll socks. The tenants of Eagan Pointe took on the challenge and rolled over 1300 pairs of socks in less than 40 minutes!
Eagan Pointe was visited by 60 swing dancers ranging in age from 6th grade to college students. They took advantage of Eagan Pointe’s high ceilings to show off their tricks and dance moves. The tenants loved watching the almost lost art of swing dancing while reminiscing about the good old days when they used to “move like that.”

This June, we kicked off the season with a little summer food, fashion, and fun at Eagan Pointe!
Eagan Pointe tenants enjoyed some nice summer weather while sipping cocktails on the patio.
The tenants of Eagan Pointe enjoyed a delightful meal together at Doolittles Woodfire Grill in Eagan. It’s usually an all-female outing, but this time we were lucky enough to have Burt with us. He came with his “cape” on, so we all called him “The King”! Everyone had an amazing time and came back with our bellies full.
Eagan Pointe hosted their semi-annual TaylorMarie’s fashion show. The models of the show are pictured here, left to right: Resident Director Renee, MaryAnn, Mary, Lois, Activity Director Taylor, and Evelyn. The models had so much fun showing off the new spring and summer styles while audience members got to enjoy their peers’ modeling abilities.
The tenants of Eagan Pointe enjoyed reading books with the children from KinderMusik during their weekly visit.

Mother’s Day celebration, parrot visitors, and Memorial Day wishes from Eagan Pointe!
Eagan Pointe hosted an event called Mother’s Day Mimosas and Muffins to honor all mothers, aunts, grandmothers, daughters, dog moms, and more! Eagan Pointe staff and volunteers served them for the hour and socialized with all the moms around. We hope that everyone felt as special and appreciated as they deserve!
Eagan Pointe hosted “Parrot Help,” a group who rescues parrots across the Twin Cities area and cares for them until they’re adopted by their forever family. This is the fourth year they’ve come to show us their exotic birds. They even let Activity Director Taylor and Coordinator Nichole hold some of their birds!
This Memorial Day weekend, we at Eagan Pointe Senior Living remember and honor the brave men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice for country.

Happy Holidays to all! This holiday season at Eagan Pointe Senior Living has been a busy one. From gingerbread cookies to a holiday jazz concert to Christmas caroling, you can say we’ve had a very festive month of December. The tenants decorated gingerbread cookies for our upcoming holiday party. They let their creativity flow to bring the gingerbread men and women to life!
Here are pictures of all the elves of Eagan Pointe putting up holiday decorations. After 4 years of putting the decorations up together, these elves have the process down pat! It took no time at all to turn Eagan Pointe into a holiday wonderland!
Preschoolers from St. John Neumann visited the tenants of Eagan Pointe. The students all came as reindeer and sang great carols.
Eagan Pointe had a special holiday concert put on by the Eagan High School Jazz Band. They played jazzy renditions of popular holiday music. They even took some time out of the concert to sing carols with the tenants!
The Garden Cove tenants of Eagan Pointe made and decorated salt dough ornaments. They mixed the dough, rolled it out, and cut holiday shapes. Once the salt dough dried out, they painted the ornaments.
Eagan Pointe hosted their annual holiday party for tenants, their families, and friends. It was a huge success! Attendees of the party enjoyed delicious hors d’oeuvres, listened to delightful holiday music, and, of course, had a visit from Santa.Read More
