On Saturday, December 13th our StuartCo employees were treated to the annual Holiday Party and Year-End Celebration. We recognized winners in 19 performance categories, and we also presented gifts to employees who have reached the milestones of five years of service and beyond. We’re proud to have 25 employees that have been with us for five or more years! We recognized nine new 5-year recipients, ten new 10-year recipients , three new 15-year recipients, and one new 20-year recipients, and two new 25-year recipients!
Please help us congratulate this year’s outstanding winners and the many employees who have reached significant milestones in their careers with StuartCo. We also thank our generous vendor companies that donated prize items and gift cards that helped make this event a very special celebration for all!
We’re pleased to share with you a recent article published by The Wall Street Journal about the unique relationship between One Southdale Place and Simon Malls in Edina. Read on to see how writer, Robbie Whelan captured the vision of the luxury lifestyle at the mall.
Special thank you to Jan and Tom, our One Southdale Place residents for their contributions to Robbie’s article!

Stonehill was the big winner of the Charity Cup last year after raising $3,608.00! Among all of the properties that participated last year, a total of $16,090.23 was raised! Last year was our best year yet, but we are hoping to top it once again this year!
Connect with us on Facebook to see daily updates and photos on Charity Week at our communities.
This past month, StuartCo communities participated in a backpack drive for Simpson Housing. Each of our Minnesota Metro area communities filled a backpack with school supplies for a specific student varying in age from Kindergarten to High School. We set out to fill 22 backpacks for 22 kids with items such as notebooks, highlighters, pencils, crayons, and more!
Our awesome residents provided us with enough school supplies for not only the 22 backpacks we set out to fill, but they also provided us with 6 boxes of additional supplies that we were able to donate to Simon Says Give and their High Five For Supplies fundraising event.
This year, Simpson Housing filled over 200 backpacks with new school supplies, and delivered them to every school aged child enrolled in their family housing program. The mission of Simpson housing is to “house, support and advocate for people experiencing homelessness.”
