Timbers of Shorewood

Live Reindeer in Shorewood

Santa Claus will listen to children’s wishes and pose for photos at the 13th Annual Timbers’ holiday event, “Santa and the Timbers’ Elves,” from 1 – 4 p.m. Saturday, December 17, at The Timbers of Shorewood, 1100 N. River Rd. This fun event is free.

“Santa and the Timber’s Elves” has become a favorite holiday festival for the community and for residents of the Timbers of Shorewood.

The event is planned for families and includes treats, surprises and animals galore. There will be draft horses for hay rides, a petting zoo filled with lots of small animals – goats, chickens, sheep, etc.

In addition, there will be live reindeer. Three caricature artists will share their talents: Russ Schreck, Angel Contreras and Daniel Laib.

Members of Shorewood and the surrounding communities volunteer their time to ensure the event is successful. Beverages, popcorn, cookies and other refreshments will be served, and children’s games will take place.

Named the 2016 Business of the Year by the Shorewood Area Chamber of Commerce, The Timbers of Shorewood is a rental retirement community that provides independent and assisted living apartments and a full schedule of activities and services. Residents whose needs may change are able to stay in the same place and receive appropriate and compassionate care. Furnished apartments are also available for short-term stays.
