Below is a synopsis of this episode.

1. Reported Case of COVID-19 in the Gyms: We have had a reported positive case of COVID-19 reported in both gyms and the Montecito indoor pool. For the health and safety of the community, they will be closed today for a massive cleaning. We plan to have them reopened by tomorrow, June 19th, by 3:00 pm. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation. If you may have been in these areas and are concerned, you may want to check with your healthcare provider and/or your doctor for their advice if you feel the need to be tested.

2. Montecito Outdoor Pool Update: the pool at the Montecito is going absolutely wonderful. We're on track and on time for completion next Friday with the chemicl balances all done. There will be a Pool Appreciation Day on June 26th from 4:30 to 6:00 pm at the Montecito Outdoor Pool. Our very special guest of honor will be our Vice President of our Association who will be there to sing for us. We'll also provide hot dogs, chips and soft drinks. Please call the Lifestyle Desk to register for this.

3. Fourth of July: I've been hearing from people that there will likely be a drive-through golf cart parade through all three phases on the 4th of July. With so much uncertainty with COVID-19 and the changes in tiers, The Lifestyles Desk hasn't had an opportunity to plan or prepare for the 4th of July. Events like this normally require 6 to 8 weeks of planning. If the parade happens, I will definitely join in with flags on my golf cart. I will try to find out when and where it will be starting and will get back to you as soon as I can.

4. Lifestyles Survey: The Lifestyles Desk will be sending out a bunch of surveys to help plan for musical and other events. Please watch for them online and make sure to participate so Connie can plan based on what you most want. We already have the return of Let's Meet and Eat and Comedy Night -- there is a lot happening around here.

I am enjoying my time as your President and having the interaction with the community and receiving your feedback, both positive and negative. Either one helps me in making myself better for this community. Be safe out there, drink lots since it's so hot, and please keep the dogs off the sidewalks.
