We will be closely adhering to the protocols as outlined by the Ohio Department of Health. Our staff has been working hard to create a safe environment for our residents and members - this includes new protocols and regulations. We ask that visitors also adhere to the guidelines as posted in our building, as well as those that have been practiced for the last 2 months.

Complete your physical assessment at home - if you don't feel well, please stay home. Masks are encouraged in public areas, but for your own safety are not suggested while working out.

At this time, the Recreation Center will appear different than we are used to - it will not be the social gathering space for our favorite seniors. It will not be the place to catch up before or after class with your complimentary cup of coffee. It will not be the place where all of the kids gather to swim.

If we can continue to abide by the suggested guidelines, we can become the Community gathering space once again.

Thank you for your patience and understanding while we re-open safely for the Community and Staff.
