Management blog, June 2009

We went over lots of little issues at our monthly meeting. We are going to sponsor a van to the Blue Rocks game in Wilmington, on Wednesday July 29th. We will have room for up to 20 people, and are planning to stay up at the Riverfront for an early dinner, with everyone welcome that wants to stay. Tickets for the game are $8, and dinner will be on you, but we’ll get you there and back.

Water aerobics has started, now that the pool has warmed up a bit, and the horseshoe pit is getting plenty of use, now that summer has finally arrived. Jill has the July calendar out, with lots of stuff planned. Check it out, and sign up! There were also a few questions about clubs or groups, like quilting or painting classes. Hopefully we’ll get some folks that want ot give it a try!

There were a few questions pertaining to the club house and pool rules we recently put out. The pool hours are from Dawn till dusk. There is a sign in the pool that says the pool closes at 6, but the residents group that helped draft the rules thought Dusk was a reasonable cut off time. Also the question came up about having children at community “outdoor” events, (like the 4th of July picnic) and management’s interpretation is they are welcome to event like these, since thety are mostly out of the clubhouse. They can use the pool and bathroom facilities as well during this time. As always, residents are responsible for their guests conduct.

The back gate has not been working recently, and we are aware of the malfunction. We will be getting his fixed. The gate should open and close, when you are exiting from Daffodil Rd, and residents aew welcome to use this exit if they choose. It is not and entrance, and does not open if you are coming from the adjacent community.

Have a great summer, and keep an eye on that garden! Those tomato’s are getting big!!!

Have you eaten at the Magnolia Restaurant?

It's on the corner of Irish Hill and State St, right off of the same exit you take from route 1 to get to Southern Meadow, at the first intersection/traffic light (although it's called Walnut not Irish Hill until the road name changes further up the street). But it's the same place where the fire house is.... can't miss that!

They have daily specials like Chicken fried steak w. 1 veg for $6.95 or
Caesar Salad with Grilled salmon for $7.95.

It's a great place to plan for lunch on your trip to Southern Meadow
or if you live hear to stop in for a quick bit to eat where the food is reasonable
and good to eat!

Ride For You

Riding a bike offers many health benefits. Here are just a few:
· increased cardiovascular fitness
· increased strength
· increased balance and flexibility
· increased endurance and stamina
· increased calories burned

It can be done by people of all ages, from childhood up even through the adult years when achy joints don't allow for more stressful exercise like jogging.

For Your State of Mind

Riding a bike is a proven stress releaser. Regardless of if you are riding purely for pleasure or for a specific purpose, you will arrive at your destination feeling relaxed, energized and happier about the world and yourself.
Plus, being out on your bike is just flat-out fun. The more time you spend on two wheels, the harder it is to take yourself too seriously.

Ride For You
When you ride your bike, you are doing a lot of good things, many of which are for the benefit of others. But ultimately, the one who benefits the most is you, through better health, peace of mind, increased confidence and self-reliance.
So for all these reasons, get out there on your bike today. It’ll be fun!
