A Message From the President
By Larry Schleyer
 
     
The topic of discussion over the last few months has primarily focused around the reopening of the bistro. I am pleased to announce that as of July 18 we open back up for business.
 
This is by far one of the largest team undertakings I have seen take place in my time here at The Shores. The success of the Bistro is largely in cooperation and due to the hard work of the Bistro subcommittee, then under the guidance and direction of the Bistro Committee led by Steve Klass, along with countless hours of collaboration and coordination with Management to revamp our dining area and execute the new kitchen plans, and as always, the help and the backing of our dedicated board of directors.
 
Prior to opening, we shared mutual success with a DALA II at two resident events. First we let off with the resident Meet and Greet, championed and sponsored by Lance, David and the DALA II team! This night focused around introductions and hors d’oeuvres. We had approximately 300 residents cycle through the social hall, which extended into card rooms three and four, for a two hour cocktail event.
 
The second event was an all you can eat Fourth of July barbecue at a price of $15 per person, for approximately 220 of our residents. The board supported this event by sponsoring the additional $10 per head as a thank you for your continued patience and patronage supporting both the community and the Bistro!
 
As the weeks go on and our residents acclimate in our new and improved Bistro, we would like to remind all residents of a few exciting changes. First off you will note that we are no longer operating under the Tee Pee counter style service. DALA II has provided a full service team that was curated to meet and exceed your expectations. We do ask that the community takes the new service into account when tipping the wait staff. Please be reminded that tips cannot be placed on the HOA/Rewards Bistro cards. Tips may only be added to debit and credit card purchases, whereas cash tips will be required for purchases applied to the Bistro cards.
 
Lastly, I would like to personally extend my thanks and gratitude to the community for your patience and understanding while we navigated through this rewarding change. There is no doubt that this community is both capable of and deserves the absolute best.
