A Trip To Palm Beach

  

Karen, Richard, Cheryl, Dan, Lois, Al, Janet and Sheila had a great time travelling on the Brightline to Palm Beach. They had lunch at the Brazilian Court Hotel then visited the Norton Museum. A delightful day.


What off-isle things are you doing these days?   Let us know.

Thank You Social Group

Over the past year the Social Group has put together beach parties, evening cocktails, holiday parties and afternoon cards.


We would like to thank them for all their creativity and encourage everyone to provide them with  ideas for the upcoming year.

Recycling Education Team

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

Want to form a group?

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. 

Free on-demand rides around the Grove

Transportation around the Grove for just the cost of a Tip


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.

 

 

Hours of Operation


11am-8pm (Sun-Wed)
11am-11pm (Thurs-Sat)


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
