Bay Village App
A group of Bay Village staff have been working for quite some time with Touchtown on developing an app just for Bay Village. This app will be available for residents on their computer, tablet, and/or smart phone. With input from some dedicated resident volunteers, the content of this app has been determined. The Bay Village app has the daily schedule, dining room menus, the Vibes, the resident directory, staff directory, the resident handbook, information on transportation, information on volunteering opportunities, the wellness schedule, frequently asked questions, and more! You can have all of this information at the tip of your finger! We know technology can be scary but we are here to help you. We have been training staff and resident volunteers to help you set up and use the Bay Village App. We will help you set up your own profile with a picture and then we will show you how to get the information you need right from the app. It should only take about 20 minutes to get you set up and going. The first two training sessions will be held Thursday June 20 anytime from 2:00-4:00 and Tuesday June 25 anytime from 10:00-12:00. Just come to the auditorium during one of these times with your laptop, tablet and/or smart phone and receive individual assistance in setting up the app on your device.
Rainbows and Kudos for Denis O’Connor. You may know we are phasing out Styrofoam here at Bay Village. The new carry-out containers are made from fiber and are compostable. They are not recyclable. Throw them out with the trash not with recyclable paper. Once they are exposed to the elements they will start to decompose.
Even better yet, we will be having a reusable container give away. The Sneiders are purchasing plastic containers with a divider. You will be able to pick up a free one at a table by the dining room entrance on June 12th, 11:30 – 1:30 or 4:30 – 6:30. If you miss the date, you may purchase one at the Country Store for $1. Please make it a habit to bring the container when you are dining.
Sarasota County does not have a compost facility or hauler. A government Food Packaging Institute report states that where they exist, only 10% accept food scraps from restaurants and facilities and even less accept food service packaging. You may wonder what they do accept: yard waste.
Hurray, Maine is the first state to ban Styrofoam for single use.
We welcome your input. Please contact any of the group members: Janet Mahler, Judy Evenson, Laura Pardee, and Anne Moffitt.
