Our July was full of fantastic summer vibes, so many exciting outings, and beautiful flowers! We were lucky enough to take trips to Blank Park Zoo and see our favorite animals. And once again, visit the beautiful Greater Des Moines Botanical Garden!
But we didn’t have to go all that way to experience some beautiful foliage. The Flower Ladies helped decorate our wonderful community! Thank you so much to them and everyone involved in making Arbor Spring just a little more inviting.
And as always, we worked hard every day to engage with our community and enjoy our Montessori activities. It’s so fun doing meaningful activities and joining in with everyone to have a good time. And at the end of the day, we love soaking up the sun outside with our friends and family. Looking forward to more great times in August!
Silvia is moving to Minneapolis to start a new job as a College & Career Readiness Coach with Minnesota Alliance with Youth & Big Brother Big Sister!
Eva’s family got a dog! Here is Maeve with her new puppy Ani.
Prince just returned from a trip to Liberia to visit family!

We are grateful for Tom our wonderful volunteer. He dedicates many hours of his own time to bring joy to our residents.
