Congratulations to all participants of the “A New You” Wellness Program, you almost made it. Keep moving to stay physically and mentally in shape until we are having the party to celebrate all your involvement and activities on Wednesday, September 15th at 9:30 am on the pool deck. There you can take a breather before you continue your Fitness journey. It is always important to take care of your health so you feel better and are more energized. I know it is not easy during these times of COVID to get the motivation up to go out of your apartment. Remember the first step is the hardest!!! You also have the option to work out in the privacy of your home with all the great exercise classes that are being shown on TV/ Channel 195. Starting in September we are teaching all exercise classes in the Auditorium. You will still be able to use the cardio and strength equipment located in the Wellness Center during construction. Keep your eyes and ears open for any updates and changes, I am sure you can expect a few of those. Remember, I am always available to you under my extension 4033 if you need any advice or help with your fitness routine.
Committees & Groups
This new feature in the Vibes is for any Bay Village Committee or Group to post information they would like to go out to all residents. Submit your information to Diana by the 23rd of the month.
- The Bay Village Book Group Meeting will be held Thursday, September 23rd at 1:00 in the Board Room. Sally Kall will lead the discussion of our first book. Copies of “The Henna Artist” by Alka Joshi are available in our library.
- The Environmental Committee maintains an information board in the Resident Entrance. There are a variety of interesting articles to read. This committee also sponsors an environmental movie one Monday afternoon once a month in the auditorium.
- The Building & Grounds Committee is giving us regular updates on the construction of The Tides. At this time, the roof is finished and the windows and doors are being installed. The project on track for completion by the end of the year when permitting will begin. This process can require patience, so residents probably won’t be able to move in until late March.
- The Socrates Seekers Group will meet Saturday, September 18th at 3:00 in the Board Room.
- Brain Games will be moving to 2:00 in the afternoon on September 13th and 27th in the auditorium. This group has been having fun and learning a lot!
September means the start of the renovation on the main Bay Village Campus. If you have ever had any work done on your home in the past, you know there are some “growing pains”. But any temporary changes will be worth it in the end! Bay Village will update residents with Eric’s Construction Updates that you receive in your boxes, but we will also include information here in the newsletter.
The third floor terrace will be the first project started. There will be a crane located near the chiller that will be used to get equipment and supplies up to the third floor. There will be scaffolding located on the sidewalk
by the pool that leads down to the parking lot. There will also be scaffolding near the driveway that leads up to the main parking garage. But don’t worry, there will be safe access to the parking garage and the sidewalk near the pool will remain open. Construction workers will use outside stairwells to access the third floor, not the elevators.
Next up is the poolside café area. The main exit to the pool area will be closed. But you can access the pool area through the wellness center and there will be automatic doors placed at that entrance. If you usually access the pool from the dock area, there will be a new sidewalk put in to give you easier access. The outdoor “Chillin & Grillin” area will now be open 5 days a week for lunch as the Poolside Café will be closed.
The third area to be started in September is the Palms Event Center. While this construction is going on you will not be able to go out the door near the ALF to access the pond. The best way to access the pond will be the entrance near the shuffleboard courts.
