Dare to Dream


Upon entering the library Irene said “Ohh… I could spend the rest of my days here” as she looked out over the aisles of books in awe. It has been many years since Irene was in a library. She is a lifelong book lover who used to frequent the library in her younger years and has been known to read more than one book at once. Her favorite author is Tom Clancy. Today Irene was able to tour the Oelwein Public Library as part of our Dare to Dream program. Irene learned about the new computer card catalogs and audio books. She checked out a few books and was introduced to a new author whose writing is similar to that of Tom Clancy. Upon her return to Arlington Place, she told our Director “The library is my happy place.”


Audrey started bowling as a young woman in Red Oak, MN. She joined two bowling leagues when she moved to Oelwein with her husband, where she bowled for 30 years or more. She had her own bowling ball, shoes, and winning streak; one time even bowling a 700 series! Audrey’s name appears countless times in the newspaper archives with her high scores and high series. At Arlington Place, when our residents play bean bags as an activity, Audrey often wins and jokes that it’s because of her bowling skills. Our Life Enrichment Coordinator Shenita took this knowledge of Audrey’s past to coordinate a tour and a game of bowling with the local bowling alley: Viper Lanes. Shenita presented Audrey with a framed article from the newspaper archives with Audrey’s picture and score stats, along with a few souvenirs. During the tour Audrey reminisced about previous owners, remodels at the bowling alley, and fellow bowlers through the years. Audrey left with a smile on her face saying, “I never thought I would bowl again, but that came back so naturally.”


Ed worked for Riley’s Construction Company for many years driving dump trucks, Caterpillars, and pulling the scraper. We first learned about Ed’s passion for construction and equipment as he watched the west water tower receive a facelift in 2021. On March 21st, he was able to tour the Earth Moving Legacy Center in Elkader. This museum started as a way for Ed’s former coworker, John Moyna, to share his collection with others. Ed was able to view their large assortment of antique heavy equipment and learn about the evolution of the Caterpillar Company. During the tour, Ed shared how many hours he spent driving various pieces of equipment and shared his vast knowledge of heavy equipment. Ed’s favorite was the D9G Caterpillar.
