Christmas in July, St. Paul Saints, and Choir Concert

July 25th, 2019

We’ve had lots of fun and celebrations this month! Check out photos from some of the good times: Christmas in July, St. Paul Saints, and choir concert at Oak Park Senior Living.

This week Oak Park Senior Living had a “Christmas in July” celebration. Tenants broke out their best Christmas attire and joined together for some Christmas cheer. We sang Christmas carols, played some Christmas trivia, and enjoyed peppermint cheesecake and hot cocoa. Everyone agreed best part of the day was not having to put up with any snow or below zero temperatures!! ???

Oak Park Senior Living ventured out to watch the St. Paul Saints play the Kansas City T-Bones. The theme for the day was “The Wizard of Oz.” Everyone enjoyed watching all the fun between innings fun and, of course, the pig mascot. While the Saints unfortunately lost 2-1, everyone agreed it was a very fun day at the park! ⚾️⚾️⚾️

The youth choir from Grace Baptist Church stopped by this week to sing for our tenants. Everyone enjoyed spending time visiting with the children, and we especially loved the wonderful songs they sang for us ??

Mother’s Day Wishes and Senior Prom at Oak Park Senior Living!

This past Sunday, we celebrated the never-ending love and bond of motherhood. Once again, we want to wish a happy (belated) Mother’s Day to all the mothers, grandmothers, and great-grandmothers at Oak Park Senior Living!

Oak Park held its Senior Prom on May 9th with a “back to the ‘50s” theme. Many of our tenants were going to their actual prom back in the ‘50s, so everyone was excited to relive some fun memories from their youth.

There were special treats prepared by our talented kitchen staff and champagne for all to enjoy. For this year’s entertainment, we were very lucky to have the ’50s doo-wop band, the TC Cats, to keep the crowd singing, clapping, and dancing ????
