I do hope that old saying holds true as we all need a little beauty in our lives these days! I want to take a brief moment to sincerely thank you all for your understanding and support during this very difficult time. The grace and patience you've shown the staff has truly touched my heart. The COVID-19 situation seemed to escalate very quickly and took many of us by surprise. I miss seeing your faces and long for the day when I get to run into you at The Lodge again. Personally, I've never looked forward to going to work more in my whole life! I know you are all very anxious to be able to get back to your normal routines such as using the facilities and participating in the Lifestyle events as well as the various groups, clubs and committees. Once it is safe to reopen the facilities, the community will be notified right away. In the meantime, I hope you are all staying very safe and following the advice of our nation's various leaders to help minimize the spread of this nasty virus. We are truly all in this together. While the facilities have been closed, the staff and I have been using this time to address a few "someday" projects. One such project is leafing through some 50+ boxes of barely labeled files. We have been purging the items that are no longer pertinent or useful and scanning the rest into an electronic filing system. You may not be aware, but we have fairly limited storage areas in The Lodge. These boxes were taking up valuable storage space in the Deergrass Room closet. In addition to this project, the staff and I have been working on cleaning up the existing computer files as well. Over the years, many employees have come and gone from Solera Diamond Valley and that unavoidable inconsistency has resulted in a very lacking filing system. Normally, there is never a great time to work on these types of tedious projects. However, we are using this time wisely while we are away to handle some much needed organization that will help increase efficiencies. This month, I am going to hold a virtual Coffee with the GM via Zoom. It will be held on May 7 at 9 am and I hope you will all join me! The directions on how to access this virtual meeting will be sent via email a few days in advance. If you need to add your email to our distribution list, please send your Concierge, Teri Collett, an email at with your information. Additionally, if you need any help with Zoom, you can still call the office at (951) 652-5766 for assistance. I would suggest that you try to join the meeting at least 15 minutes early in case you have any trouble with the connection. Until we meet again, stay safe friends! COFFEE WITH THE GENERAL MANAGER VIA ZOOM May 7 at 9 am. Directions on how to access will be sent by email. See article above for more details!
