November 2018

As of October 15, 2018 I want to provide you with a few updates on the Gateway Wellness Center.

I am happy to report that we installed a back flow valve after the flood damage in August, and it has served us well during Hurricanes Florence and Michael.

I cannot give you a timeline yet on reopening the aquatics center. We are still waiting to hear from our insurance companies as to which one will pay for repairs of equipment in the basement and when the payment will be made. We understand that all insurance companies are covered up with paperwork related to the recent hurricanes and that insurance determinations can take several months. Nonetheless, we are pushing for resolution through regular communication with our primary insurance agent. Once we receive payment, we anticipate it taking 3-4 weeks to make the repairs, subject to the availability of parts and the schedule of the company making the repairs.

Meanwhile, many of you have discovered low impact “land” classes you enjoy. Constance Poe suggests Silver Sneakers Classic (high intensity cardio/strength) and Silver Sneakers Yoga (for flexibility/increased range of motion). Chairs are provided for support in both classes.

Thank you for your continued patience regarding the aquatics center closure. I will let you know as soon as I have new information.

All best,

Greg Fagg
Vice President for Operations
