Towers are haven in the heat Despite the heat wave, North Shore Towers residents continue to enjoy a host of healthy activities. The outdoor pool has been a haven for those who enjoy a cool swim to get some relief from the heat. Towards the late afternoon there is actually a breeze for those sitting in the shaded areas. The pools were kept open later than usual to accommodate those who work during the day and others who prefer to swim when the shade covers the pool area. The tennis players have kept the courts busy in the early morning hours. Most members have been playing from 8 to 11 a.m. Few brave the courts during the heat of the day. Tennis members are attempting to start playing in the early evening hours to avoid the heart of the day. The Board will be discussing the replacement of the evening lighting that was destroyed during hurricane Sandy. Everyone enjoyed watching the USTA events that demonstrated the from the towers A Message from the President: skills of very young players. It was a joy to watch these budding stars hit the ball with power and grace. Some contestants were as young as 8 years old. They put most of us to shame! The Garden Club hosted its annual barbecue on Monday the 15th. This group also cooks food for the men who work on our golf course. Lunch is served to them as a thank you for helping clear the garden area, maintain our golf course and shovel the snow in the wintertime. Our appreciation goes to the members of the garden club. We continue to receive letters of thanks for the gifts made by members of our Knitting Club. They generously donate hand knit items to hospitals and veteran organizations. Our library staff also deserves recognition for their donations of books to our hospitalized veterans. In a few days a listing of all committee members will be posted. The fact that we have 70 to 85 volunteers to staff our committees is a credit to those who are willing to share the areas of their expertise. Our committees are: Budget and Finance Capital Improvement House and Grounds Screening Country Club The Gap (Gym, Aerobics and Pool) Political Action Public Relations Thanks are also in order for the men and women who organize our golf events. Under the direction of Bob Guido, they constantly create events that will meet the needs of golfers of all ability levels. When we have a scramble, teams are made up of A, B, C, and D players and everyone is able to compete and help their team’s score. No one is left out on the golf course! The gym, poolroom and boxing room are air-conditioned and thus a year-round activity area. The class Bob Ricken schedules are posted and in the summer water aerobics are held outdoors. There are also a variety of aerobics room classes for all levels with expert teachers. Time to get involved and enjoy the healthy activities at North Shore Towers. SEND US YOUR LETTERS!
