June Administrator’s Letter

Hello Everyone,

Hope everyone is looking forward to the summer and hopefully some beautiful warm Duluth weather!  We certainly had a cool May and a slow start to the season. Here at St. Ann’s, we have kept busy with many activities and important meetings like Food Committee, Resident Council, Family Council and Open Forum. At these meeting we try to communicate and listen to your concerns. Thank you for making suggestions. Some items we can act on and other times we can explain the obstacle or challenges to addressing your concerns. As the world around us is constantly changing it can be a bit confusing. 

We continue to monitor for COVID, and we will continue testing until we have two weeks of zero positive cases. We are still faithfully following the CDC and the MN Department of Health guidelines. Thank you to everyone that has been cooperating and following these guidelines. We know if a resident tests positive, they will still need to quarantine for 10 days. Hopefully with zero cases, soon we can enjoy the nicer warmer temperatures and many upcoming events inside, on the patio, and outings.

Our annual summer picnic is going to be held on Tuesday, July 5th in our front parking lot. It worked out well last year and Upper Lakes will be here to do the grilling. So, mark your calendar!

Wishing the fathers and grandfathers a Happy Father’s Day!

Sincerely,

Scott and Jan

May Administrator’s Letter

Hello Everyone,

May looks like it will be a busy month. Hopefully the weather will be warmer, and we can get outdoors and enjoy the patio. Sharon has many nice activities planned like a Mother’s Day Tea and Spring Dance with the Windjammers.

We would like to thank everyone for your support with our Rummage and Bake Sale. We raised over $3,800 in the two days. Thank you to the dedicated staff and volunteers that made it possible.

Sincerely,

Scott and Jan

Administrator’s Letter April 2022

Hello Everyone,

April showers bring May flowers! Hopefully we will start to see signs of spring soon. Usually in Duluth we normally have several April Fool’s snow and bad weather days before we get in to our beautiful Duluth days.

We would like to thank everyone for all your patience, cooperation and support as we navigate through two years of the global COVID pandemic, required inspections and regulations along with the construction with the Essentia expansion. St. Ann’s will certainly be in the hub of the medical community which will be one of the largest and modern medical complexes.

We look forward to our upcoming building improvements and getting back to our fundraisers this spring.  One of them is our famous Rummage and Bake Sale which is scheduled for Friday, April 29th and Saturday April 30th.

Our latest improvement project is the purchasing of much needed new window coverings for the Social Hall huge windows. We have over half of the funds for this project raised by generous donors so the order of materials could be placed. If interested in helping please see Jan or Sharon.  We also want to thank all our very generous donors and volunteers that help provide and support our programs, activities, Little Shoppe, employee recognitions, building projects and the chapel every day. Thank you for keeping the spirit and mission alive as we forge ahead!

Wishing you a happy spring and a great Easter season!

Sincerely,

Scott and Jan
