Tuesday July 30, 2019 - August Activities at North Shore Living

Summer is here, and the residents of North Shore Living have been enjoying plenty of time on our beautiful patio taking in the fragrances and warm sunshine. Our patio space continues to improve with the recent addition of the wheelchair-accessible glider swing. This swing enables those confined to
a wheelchair to enjoy the therapeutic benefits of a soothing rocking motion. Other additions to our patio include access to our gazebo, and a shaded area. Many thanks to our hard working Maintenance Dept. for all the hours they have dedicated to improving our outdoor space for all to enjoy!

August is a busy month starting with the Fisherman’s Picnic. We welcome all the family and friends who will be visiting the area over the Picnic. On Saturday August 3rd, we’ll have a fishing game and reminisce time on the patio along with some delicious fish snacks. The residents will enjoy an outing to watch the Fisherman’s Picnic Parade on August 4th, so we’re hoping for lots of sunshine that day too.

Other outings this month include a trip on August 22nd to The Hub for lunch with our friends there, and an outing to Harbor Park and the Dairy Queen on August 27th.

The monthly birthday party will be held on August 14 at 3:00 p.m. This month we will celebrate Diane Deschampe, Ed Olson, Donna Anderson, Bob Haring, and Ione Jones who will turn 102 on August 30th! Doug Sanders will play our favorite piano tunes, and there will be plenty of cake and ice cream for everybody. Family and friends are welcome to join us.
A “Block Party” is scheduled for residents and their families on Thursday August 15 starting at 5:00 p.m. Residents and families will be able to enjoy dinner together at 5:00 p.m., followed by a gathering on the patio for root beer floats at 5:45 p.m. It gives residents and families of both households a chance to get to know each other better, and talk about life at North Shore Living.

There will be music on Sunday afternoons with Myron Bursheim, piano with Susan Scherer on Wednesday afternoons, and Portage Band will be at North Shore Living on August 31st at 6:30 p.m. for a dance.

The 2nd annual Minnow Race will be held on August 19th to kick off our Hawaii Fest celebration. The residents had so much fun at this activity last year that we had to bring it back again! Other fun activities that week will be Hawaiian Happy Hour with Hilja on August 20th, Hawaiian- style Bingo on August 22nd, making fruit kabobs on August 23rd, and wrapping up the week with the movie “Blue Hawaii” on August 24th.

The residents wish all their family and friends safe travels during these busy summer months.

Friday June 28, 2019 - July Activities at North Shore Living

Summer has finally arrived, and July 2nd marks the halfway point of 2019! July is also National Picnic and Family Reunion Month, and residents of North Shore Living look forward to more visits from their out of town family and friends. We welcome all to join in the activities during their visits
here.

The residents are hoping for a beautiful day on the 4th of July with plans for a picnic on the patio. Hotdogs from the grill will served, along with our favorite picnic foods. Other outdoor activities this month include an outing to Harbor Park and the Donut Shop on July 9th, and an outing to The Hub for lunch on July 18th. Of course, there are a lot of outdoor activities on the patio planned for those sunny days too!

There is a lot of activity on our patio as preparations are being made for sod placement and garden spaces. The patio will also be getting a shaded area installed, and our gazebo will soon be accessible for residents to use. A glider swing that accommodates wheelchairs will be another feature added to our patio, thanks to a generous donation made to North Shore Living for our outdoor space.

At our recent “block parties”, we asked residents and families to bring in their favorite recipes to share. We will be collecting these for our North Shore Living Resident Cookbook, and of course trying them out. This month we will be making Joyce Hagen’s famous chocolate chip cookies. I’m sure they will disappear quickly, as residents and staff are always eager to taste what’s been cooking in our kitchen!

The July birthday party will be held on Wednesday July 10th at 3:00 p.m., and this month we have a lot of birthdays to celebrate! We will honor Delores Saethre, Eleanor Sjoberg, Iris Shepard, Bill Lyght, Harold Husby, Ken Lacey, Elizabeth Pearson, and Charles Norman. Doug Sanders will once again join us to play our favorite tunes on the piano, and cake an ice cream will be served. Family and friends are welcome to join us in the celebration.

A Mexican-themed Happy Hour with Hilja is planned for July 16th. Margaritas and a taco snack will be served while enjoying some “south of the border” music and a fun game.

There will be plenty of music this month too. Myron Bursheim brings his folk music to North Shore Living most Sunday afternoons, and Susan Scherer will be playing piano for us most Wednesday afternoons in July. Harris Mills will be her on July 14th at 2:30 p.m. Amy Schmidt and family will be here on July 22nd at 2:00 p.m. We also welcome Portage Band on July 20th at 6:30 p.m. for a delightful evening of country music. Family and friends are invited to attend any of our music events.

Many thanks to the dedicated volunteers who continue to give their valuable time during these busy summer months!
