>>Changing Stations-A special thanks to each of you who are helping to save your floors from the tyranny of winter, aka, salt. At the Wellness Center entrance, we have set up chairs/shelves to allow you to change into your workout shoes during the Winter. We know it’s inconvenient but tracking in the sand, salt and winter grime is a mess and destroys the floors. Thank you for your help! Contact Andrea with any questions or comments.
