November Events at Eagan Pointe: Anniversaries, Halloween, and Dinosaurs

November 13th, 2021

Amy Hansen and Barb Ryan both recently celebrated their 5-year anniversaries at Eagan Pointe Senior Living. We are so thrilled and thankful to have them both contributing their talents and energy to our community. Let’s hear it for these wonderful ladies: Whoot! Whoot! ????

A family member of one of our residents came to us with an idea for a flash mob. She and her Dancing Dinosaurs group dropped in at Eagan Pointe Senior Living with this entertaining and prehistoric surprise. We loved it and can’t wait for the dinosaurs to return!

Eagan Pointe Senior Living took advantage of the spook-tacular holiday and went all out for Halloween.

The Director Staff dressed up as Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs: Sarah was Snow White; Mickey was Happy; Adrian was Bashful; Nichole was Sneezy; Bill was Doc, Matt was Dopey; Michelle was Grumpy; and Renee was Sleepy.

Barb from Dietary also dressed up in a creepy skeleton costume and posed with and even creepier doll someone left on our front door a few days prior. Scary or cursed? You decide!

We also hosted a Halloween Party Happy Hour for residents and served spooky cocktails like Jack-O-Lantern Punch, the Sloshed Pumpkin Cocktail, and the Purple People-Eater. And we served up tasty Monster Mash Mix snacks for the big turnout of attendees. ???

Bringing the Halloween Spirit to Eagan Pointe

November 10th, 2020

We certainly got into the Halloween spirit here at Eagan Pointe last month! Several residents made Halloween lanterns of either Frankenstein’s monster, a ghost, or a more classic jack-o’-lantern. We also made treat bags for students at the nearby St. John Neumann Preschool. In return, they gave us handcrafted pumpkins for a pumpkin patch. And since they couldn’t join us in-person, they also sent us photos of the children all dressed up for a “costume parade.” Thank you so much for the kind, fun, and festive gifts – they’re the perfect Halloween decorations for us all to admire and enjoy!

We kept the Halloween theme rolling with a socially distanced coloring activity! Participants tapped into their artistic side while coloring a “Happy Halloween” picture, and the results were boo-tiful. Take a look! ????

Eagan Pointe’s leadership team members dressed up as pumpkins for Halloween this year. Check out how great they looked all together as a pumpkin patch! And, since Halloween is all about fun, we had to strike a pose for the traditional “silly picture!”

More Halloween fun to close out the month of October! We held a “zombie hunt” activity where residents searched for hidden “zombies” all around Eagan Pointe. The hunt was successful and the participants received yummy caramel apples as their prize.

We held a “flu shot clinic” drawing for Eagan Pointe associates recently. All employees who received a flu shot this year were entered for a chance to win a $250 Target gift card. Congratulations to Centila for taking home the big prize!

Eagan Pointe Senior Living associates received a surprise note from a resident one recent morning:

“Thanks to all the employees of Eagan Pointe for all you do day and night to keep us safe and sane during this pandemic!” -Ruby L.

What a great way to start the day. Thank you for the kind words, Ruby!

Halloween Crafts & Decorations

October 31st, 2019

We’ve been busy getting into the spirit of the holiday with Halloween crafts! Check out photos from all the fun.

Eagan Pointe tenants got creative for some fall spirit! We made the cutest fall pumpkin decorations out of the most unusual of supplies: unused toilet paper rolls wrapped in fabric! Everyone had a good laugh about the less-than-usual supplies they were using.

More pumpkin crafts! This time, Eagan Pointe tenants decorated REAL mini pumpkins by pouring paint onto them and letting it drip down in different patterns. No two pumpkins looked the same, and they were complete just in time for Halloween! ?

Even MORE Halloween crafts! Eagan Pointe tenants made witches hats for Halloween. One resident, Mike Rand, stated he did not make his big enough – guess it must be for someone else!

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!
