We are delighted to let you know that Jamie is going to be teaching yoga again to our Grove Isle residents. She is offering a free online yoga class every Wednesday at 5pm via Zoom. Those of you who know her from when she was teaching on the island might like to join. Or anyone you know really! Yoga is especially beneficial these days!
Here is the link for the class:
Just click on that link at 5pm any Wednesday from now until the end of social distancing.
Feel free to share with anyone and everyone who could use a good stretch for the body and mind!
Please stay safe and help end this soon. Social distance at least 6 feet at all times.
As most of you know in Building Two's Social Room we have created a lovely library of contemporary fiction titles.
Unfortunately, due to water damage the Social Room in building two has been closed until repairs can be completed. The books have been boxed up for safe keeping and will be returned to the shelves as soon as the volunteers can get back into the library. Sorry for this inconvenience.
When the library reopens we will let you know and your donations will be very much appreciated. The library is very small and therefore it is limited to contemporary literature meaning it is restricted to recent fiction, novels only. The library accepts hard back books and large sized paper backs. When donating books or returning books a cart is provided for your convenience. The library is maintained by volunteers and the books are shelved in alphabetical order by author. Non-fiction books are not accepted because there is not enough room to maintain a reference library.
If you have a large number of books that are not appropriate for our library they can be donated to the Salvation Army. The books will be picked up if they fill at least a carton and must be packed in card board boxes. Call them to arrange a pick up date, 800-728-7825.
Freebee is a free ride service which you have probably seen around. For just the cost of a tip to an inevitably delightful young person, they will pick you up from your building or anywhere in the Grove. The carts are electric so not only do you avoid parking hassles but you are good for the environment. Residents that have tried them love the service.
Riders can request on-demand door-to-door transportation to and from the Grove. The program is funded through advertising.
You can hop on at any place or download the app and summon them for free. They are also Grove Ambassadors who will recommend places to visit or places to eat in the Grove

We would like to thank them for all their creativity and encourage everyone to provide them with ideas for the upcoming year.
The social group is looking for volunteers who are interested in being part of a team to become educated as to what can and cannot be recycled. We need to be consistent with recycling in each building and have signage that is readable. If you are interested please send your name and email address to GIsocialgroup@gmail.com
If you want to set up a regular game (e.g. bridge) or get the residents together for any other reason, let us know and we will publicize it and post it on the calendar.
