Dr. Sharon Aadalen, Board Trustee of the Year

We are so proud to share that Dr. Sharon Aadalen, a member of the Jones-Harrison Residence Board of Directors, was honored as the Board Trustee of the Year during the Leading Age Institute held last week in St. Paul.  Sharon was joined by her lovely family and members of the Jones-Harrison staff for a reception for the award winners.  Sharon is a tireless servant to Jones-Harrison operations and more importantly, to the residents we serve.  We are very lucky to have her.  Also great to have Governor Walz open the Institute.

Jones-Harrison Residence Winter Open House with a Touch of Love

Thanks to everyone who came out to play at the Jones-Harrison Residence Winter Open House with a Touch of Love!  We enjoyed great food and music, got to be crafty with collage artist Teresa Cox, create clay masterpieces with Susan & Chloe from Northern Clay Center and enjoy the work of our resident photographers with teaching artist Mike Hazard. Also got a chance to meet and greet with new Jones-Harrison President & CEO Annette Greely and of course, pose for sweet Valentine pictures.  Jones-Harrison residents and their family and friends are the best!

A Very Special Evening With Karrin Allyson

How lucky are we to have the jazz stylings of Karrin Allyson for our Thursday night concert at Jones-Harrison Residence.  We are so appreciative of Karrin graciously performing for residents and family when she comes to visit a very special lady who she shared was her inspiration and first piano teacher – Mom!  Mother and daughter even performed together for us.  What a special evening for all of us – thanks Karrin and Chrystopher!

Karrin performs while Mom Chrystopher beams in the audience!

A beautiful duo from Mother and Daughter!

Thanks Karrin, for sharing of your time and talent with all the residents and families here at Jones-Harrison!

IN2L Leads the Exercise Class!

With a break week for the Breck students, we got together in the Centrum for a bit of exercise led by one of the many programs available on our It’s Never 2 Late unit.  Kudos to the activities team for their coaching our crew!

This and That

A few photos to catch up on our recent activities.  Our memory care residents visit the American Swedish Institute and the Humane Society; meanwhile members of our board of directors stop to visit with a resident plus family and puppy!

Bingo with Breck Buddies!

Took a little break this week from ceramics and dance with our Friends from Breck High School, and instead showed them what master bingo players we are!

Mr. Kohl takes on calling duty!
