Highlights - Summer through Yesterday

Cedar Village's goal is to always enrich lives of our elders, the residents living at Cedar Village through special programming to meet their needs. In two weeks, residents will have  the opportunity to be entertained by a the music group “One Voice” who not only performs songs of old and new, but provides residents with the lyrics to sing-a-long. Last year one comment received was, "the songs brought back so many wonderful memories of attending the theater in New York City."

 

Additionally, our residents had the wonderful experience of watching our Wii Bowling League win yesterday when we hosted two other retirement facilities in our newly created league.

 

This summer, we will host our 1st Annual Summer Concert in the “park” with the Buffalo Ridge Jazz Band. To see 80 and 90 year-old folks up on the dance floor was tremendous!

 

Funds helped sponsor exercise classes including Balance Class and chair aerobics, our new ceramics class and, jewelry-making classes where our residents enjoy making bracelets and necklaces for themselves and their family members.

 

Within a retirement community it is vital to provide engagement and stimulation for mind, body and spirit.
