There will be an abundance of activities for residents at the North Shore Care Center during November. The gardens are cleaned up and the colder weather means more time indoors to work on craft projects and baking for our upcoming Holiday Sale.
November is Native American Heritage Month, as well as deer hunting season, Veterans Day, Thanksgiving Day, and Square Dance Day. It's also Peanut Butter Lover's Month!
The residents will mark Minnesota's deer hunting opener by making venison stew, and sharing hunting stories and favorite venison recipes.
