Another hurrah for Christmas at Campus Club. We had a fun time decorating our cookies then we listened to Mary read "A Cup of Christmas Tea." The book reminds us to stay in contact with our loved ones and that we can stay young at heart. Then of course we enjoyed eating our beautiful cookies!
Merry Christmas from your friends at Campus Club.
Oh how we just LOVE Curtis and Loretta! Their voices, musical talent and stories are absolutely one of a kind.
Curtis & Loretta’s music comes straight from the heart. The husband and wife duo’s extraordinary harmonies and proficiency on a parade of stringed instruments create an alluring frame for their poignant original songs, and traditional pieces from America and the British Isles. The current menagerie includes mandocello, folk harp, guitars, clawhammer banjo, ukulele, and mandolin, plus a bit of kazoo, harmonica, and shakers. Curtis’ down-home sense of humor and Loretta’s theater background engage the audience in an experience that runs the gamut of rolling with laughter to holding back tears, with plenty of side-trips in between. They rack up countless miles each year, crisscrossing the country to deliver their own unique brand of folk singer/songwriter music.
Thank you for spending some time with us this Christmas season and sharing your gifts. If you would like to learn more about the duo, you can visit their website at www.curtisandloretta.com
What a blessing and gift it is to be able to worship together, pray together and celebrate the true meaning of Christmas. Thank you Rev. Diane Reishus and Rev. David Cobb for leading our Spiritual Programs here at Martin Luther Campus.

Thank you to OboeBass for sharing their beautiful sounds with Martin Luther Campus today.
Called “pioneers” by Minnesota Public Radio for “forging ahead with a new chamber music combination”, the engaging and entertaining duo of Carrie Vecchione and Rolf Erdahl charts new territory for their combination of instruments in music that is accessible, challenging, enlightening, and virtuosic. This award-winning chamber group of a different color will share with you their own repertoire of evocative music influenced by ethnic folk songs, dances and All-American jazz. You can hear music that grabs your ear as the ink dries, and sends you out the door humming a new tune.
We invite you to join us for an event or activity. Just check our Activity Calendars and Newsletters on our website and call for more information. You can learn more about OboeBass by going to their website: http://www.oboebass.com/
Thank you to ALL friends, family and guests who joined us this Saturday for our Care Center Christmas Dinner. It was a cold day but with all the warm hearts and great food, you sure wouldn't know it.
Merry Christmas to ALL!
Campus Club was lucky enough to be some of the first people to tour the newly renovated space of TPT.
They are "one of the preeminent PBS affiliate stations in the country, producing and broadcasting public media programming in the Twin Cities and it's surrounding areas. TPT believes that media is profoundly powerful- shaping how people and communities understand themselves, each other and the world in which we live."
We are so grateful to Melissa Varriano and all the TPT talent for allowing us to be part of your afternoon and showing us your great new space.

Our Meadow Woods residents enjoyed an afternoon of writing Christmas cards to our troops overseas celebrating the true spirit of Christmas.
"This is just a small way we can show appreciation for all they have done and continue to do for our country," says resident Amelia Carlson.
What fun our residents had today making yummy lefse and listening to accordian music! Our Lefse Maker, Shirley Evenstad, has been making lefse for over 35 years and comes each year to Martin Luther Campus to share her talents.
Thank you to ALL of our wonderful residents, families and friends who celebrated with us at our Home for the Holidays Christmas Party on Friday. We hope you enjoyed the food, music and festivities. It was great to see so many of you!
We also want to thank all of the Meadow Woods staff who made this party a success!
Christmas Blessings to all!
VEAP's annual Holiday Toy Drive is full in effect. Today a few of our residents and staff went to the store and picked up some goodies to add to bins.
The goal of the toy drive is for low income families in Bloomington, Richfield, Edina and South Minneapolis to select a toy, one book and two winter wear items per child as well as one game per household.
We have two collections areas here at Martin Luther Campus, one at the Care Center and one at Meadow Woods Assisted Living. We hope that you are able to donate and help these families in need. If you should give, please deliver by December 12th as the bins are being picked up.
Thank you for your generosity!
