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.

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!

Getting Into the Holiday Spirit at Eagan Pointe

From decorating our campus to touring the city to take in all the Christmas lights, we’ve certainly been getting into the holiday spirit at Eagan Pointe!

Santa’s elves who live at Eagan Pointe came out to decorate and bring holiday cheer! Our building looks so festive thanks to the help of the wonderful tenants! 🎄

We hosted our annual holiday party here at Eagan Pointe on December 4. We were even lucky enough to have a couple special guests: Santa and his elf. The tenants of Eagan Pointe enjoyed food, music, and a very joyous and spirited time!🎅🎄🥳

The tenants that live in Eagan Pointe’s Garden Cove units spent a night enjoying Christmas lights all over town. Some houses, like the one pictured here, even had decorations on every inch of their lawns. Tenants had to get all bundled up to face the cold, but it was worth it to see all the Christmas lights!

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.”

Tree Painting, Padelford Tour, Oktoberfest, Oh My!

October 17th, 2018

The residents of Eagan Pointe Senior Living are making the best of this fall season! Take a look at some of the fun fall activities from the past couple weeks.

Some of our Garden Cove residents made fall trees come to life with Q-tip painting. Some had already lost their leaves and were raked into a pile at the bottom. The residents used their creativity to bring a little fall to their rooms.

 

This was an extraordinary day! The residents of Eagan Pointe Senior Living went on a Padelford tour down the Mississippi River. They were able to learn a little bit about the history, as well as see the beautiful nature surrounding the boat.

 

The residents of Eagan Pointe celebrated Oktoberfest! They enjoyed German snacks, German polka music, and of course, beer. What Oktoberfest celebration would be complete without a little sauerkraut? Prost!
