Upon moving to the “Sunshine State,” I expected to see sunshine on a daily basis driving back and forth to Bay Village and our home in Venice. I have indeed not been disappointed with the beautiful weather! In addition to the warmth of the weather, I have also experienced magnificent sunshine and warmth from the residents, board members, and staff here at Bay Village with various welcoming parties and meetings. I have thoroughly enjoyed this past month meeting the residents and staff. I have found Bay Village to be very warm and friendly. There is a great team of coworkers here, providing excellent service and care to all the residents.
I have spoken with quite a few residents and everyone I have talked with is enjoying living here at Bay Village. Bay Village, as I have mentioned to several of you, reminds me very much of the organization I left in Frederick, Maryland, with all the wonderful staff and residents. I want to wish Jack all the best with his retirement. He has taken really good care of Bay Village during his 19 years here. I will have some big shoes to fill! I am getting settled in our home in Venice. Sheila and our four teacup poodles (Salt, Margarita, Shaker, and Martini) came down from Maryland in late May. We are beginning to live the “coastal” lifestyle and entering a brand new chapter of our lives.
