Welcome Dan to Lakeside!
We have had a few changes around Lakeside as we have welcomed a new Administrator, Dan Hansen! We have enjoyed getting to know him and we are sure that you will too!
Stop in and introduce yourself or give us a call if you have any questions.
Very Important Job Opportunity! Do you know someone?

Notes from Noke
What's going on in Activities
We received a new golf cart here at Lakeside! It was donated by one of our residents. It is a six passenger cart and we will be utilizing it in so many ways! We will take rides for a breath of fresh air, visit places around town, drive by the lake and if the fish are biting maybe even drop in a line. So many things we can do, we are super excited!
Easter & Mothers Day
We are offering front porch visits so that families can get together for holiday celebrations like Easter and Mother's Day coming up soon! Our porch is heated if it is chilly out and we will set it up in a festive way so it will feel nice and homey for you. If you would like to set up a gathering time, go to our "Let's Visit" tab on our website, click the "Schedule Here" button, select a date that works for you on the calendar, select a time, select if you would like Side 1 or Side 2 (they are basically the same) then click next, add your information and then "Book Now". Easy! If you want to do it today, click HERE! We hope to see you soon!
Hey good lookin, we've been cookin!
We have been enjoying cooking and baking in the mornings! They get to choose what they want to make and then, as a group, we make some lovely creations to share with our peers in the afternoon. Our favorite recipe lately has been Apple Crisp.
I know this sounds easy to do, but we are using some of our fine motor skills as we peel and core the apples, we are measuring, dumping, cracking eggs, stirring and spreading!
That makes me tired just thinking about it, lol! We have a lot of fun, get some exercise and enjoy a nice dessert! :)
Free Fishing Weekend
Free fishing weekend is June 3rd - 5th and we LOVE this weekend! We will plan on going fishing on Friday the 3rd. We have a spot picked out that is just across the road from Lakeside.
Our new golf cart will come in nice and handy for this fishing event! We have a tent to give us some shade and hide us from the elements. We will pack a sack lunch and drinks...just in case we don't catch any fish, lol! Are you a friend or family member that would like to join us for this outdoor event? Give me (Noke) a call at 712-852-4060 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I must be telling some pretty big fishing stories in this photo below! Ha!
We have some experienced fisherman, some who bait the hooks and some who are there to soak up the ambience of the beautiful lake and have a nice conversation with their friends. We all enjoy this special time together.
Take me out to the Ball Game!
TODAY we are celebrating the opening season of baseball with the "Field of Dreams" movie (which was filmed in Iowa), AND we can't just watch the movie, we will have hotdogs and popcorn to go with it!
Hopes and Dreams
We are still working on trips for the summer. We would like to go to the Antique Car Museum in Milford, the Grotto in West Bend and hopefully the Clay County Fair!
Thank you for sharing your loved ones with us at Lakeside, we love them too!
