Rainy Day Entertainment & Special Project

October 25th, 2019

Over the last couple weeks, Tenants at Oak Park received some rainy day entertainment & special project time to brighten up some gloomy weather. Check it out!

Oak Park Senior Living spent a gloomy afternoon with entertainer Kent Appeldoorn. Kent had everyone laughing, tapping their toes, singing, and dancing. Music is a fun way to pass the time on rainy days! 🎼💃🕺


For a very special project last week, several tenants spent time coloring in artwork to be sent to Neonatal Intensive Care Units (NICU) all across the country. These pictures are placed on the incubators of premature or sick newborns to provide comfort and support to their families. A family member here at Oak Park connected us with an artist who designs the cards and will be in charge of distributing them.

Renaissance BBQ and Oktoberfest Celebration

October 17th, 2019

Getting into the spirit of the season, Oak Park recently held a Renaissance BBQ and Oktoberfest celebration. Check it out!

Oak Park Senior Living recently celebrated the last BBQ of the summer with a Renaissance theme. Along with the BBQ, tenants made flower crowns and we held a Renaissance Art Fair. Tenants showed off their artistic talents in paintings, woodwork, quilting, and needlework. As you can see from the pictures, we have a lot of very talented tenants here at Oak Park!


Oak Park Senior Living celebrated Oktoberfest last week. Our afternoon included a polka band and yummy German-inspired treats from our kitchen. And of course, no Oktoberfest would be complete without beer taste testing. Our tenants sampled several kinds of specialty Oktoberfest brews. PROST! 🍻

October 8th, 2018

Recent fun at Oak Park Senior Living included celebrating Oktoberfest and a performance from a’Choir’d Harmony Community Choir.

Oktoberfest

Oak Park Senior Living celebrated Oktoberfest on Friday, Sept. 28th. We started out the festivities with an authentic German meal prepared by Chef Joel and his wonderful staff.
In the afternoon, the Squires Band came to entertain us with Oktoberfest music. As you can see from the pictures, everyone had a great time singing and clapping along. There were quite a few residents up on their feet and dancing! Of course, what would an Oktoberfest celebration be without beer? Residents enjoyed sampling a variety of specially brewed Oktoberfest beer.
PROST!!! (That’s German for cheers.)

a’Choir’d Harmony Community Choir

Last night the a’Choir’d Harmony Community Choir stopped by Oak Park Senior Living to share their “Swingin’ Thru the Years” concert. Residents enjoyed music from the 1920s through today. Songs included hits from Irving Berling, Glen Miller, Dean Martin, and Michael Buble. The highlight of the evening was Cab Calloway’s “Minnie the Moocher,” complete with the soloist in top hat and tails.
