May is Colorful


May is Colorful

May 21st, 2018

Over the past few weeks, residents saw exotic birds, made piñatas, and hosted a fashion show! May has been very colorful so far, especially with the flowers in bloom.

Exotic Birds

The residents of Eagan Pointe Senior Living loved viewing and learning about exotic birds that family member Brad Ruth brought in. The residents greatly enjoyed the live animals.

 

Cinco De Mayo Piñatas

Residents made piñatas for Cinco De Mayo. They used decoupage to make the shell of the piñata and then used crepe paper to decorate them. On Cinco De Mayo, the residents whacked the piñatas open to find some goodies.

 

Spring Fashion Show

Eagan Pointe Senior Living hosted their Spring Fashion Show, featuring models MaryAnne, Evelyn, Joy, Bev, and Julie. We had special appearances by guest models Nurse Sarah and Home Health Aid Evita. It was so fun seeing all the spring fashions!

Fire Station

May 26th, 2017

Eagan Pointe received some new neighbors. Right down the hill from Eagan Pointe a new fire station was built. The Fire Station became operational May 1st and there is a grand opening on June 8th. The Eagan Fire Chief, Mike Scott, invited Eagan Pointe tenants down early to be some of the first few people to see the new building. Eagan Pointe presented the Fire Fighters that were there on the tour with us a statue of the Fire Fighting Emblem, a picture frame with a picture of their new building, and a large card signed by tenants, staff and family of those at Eagan Pointe. The Fire Fighters with the Fire Chief, Mike Scott, then took the tenants around the station, showing them their equipment that they use and their trucks and other rescue equipment. They even let the tenants test out their lazy boys in their day room, shown in the picture with Mary Ronzani. The community of Eagan Pointe is looking forward to many other interactions and get-togethers with the fire fighters of the new Fire Station #1 in Eagan.

The tenants of Eagan Pointe got a visit from the Animal Ambassadors and their friends! The Animal Ambassadors are two ladies that put on programs for senior living facilities and schools and other places. They bring their unusual pets with them to show the audience. This time the Animal Ambassadors brought a Cavy, a Parrot, a Bearded Dragon, an Armadillo, a 4-week old Porcupine and a Hedgehog. The tenants were able to touch some of the animals and the Animal Ambassadors would answer any questions the tenants had about the animals. It was a very neat experience for the tenants!
