Health & Wellness Corner

It’s a New Year! Let’s start it off right by taking care of ourselves.

Here are a few simple steps to get you going on the right track…

  • Write it down. Post your goals and exercise plan where you will see it!
  • Do Not set a difficult goal. Start off easy with 5 minutes a day and work your way up. This will help build the habit of exercising.
  • Be specific. Pick an activity you enjoy, pick the time of day (if possible), and where you will exercise.
  • Measurable goals. Stick to this one goal for at least a month. Then change it up a bit for your next goal. Keep it interesting!
  • Motivation! Get out your headphones and listen to music that will get you moving!

Hang that shirt or dress that’s too small in a visible place as motivation.

A cardio workout improves the function and health of the heart, lungs, and blood vessels. Weight-bearing exercises enhance the function and health of the bones, muscles, joints, and connective tissues.

Here’s to a healthy and happy New Year!!

Recipe Corner

Grilled Bread with Ricotta & Tomatoes


  • 1 garlic clove
  • Kosher salt
  • 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
  • 6 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 3/4 pound assorted small tomatoes (such as cherry, Sun Gold, or green), halved, quartered if large
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 8 3/4"-thick slices country-style bread
  • 1 cup (loosely packed) coarsely chopped mixed tender herbs (such as basil, parsley, small dill sprigs, and/or chives)
  • 10 ounces whole-milk ricotta


Finely chop garlic, sprinkle with a pinch of salt, then mash with the side of knife to a fine paste. Transfer to a medium bowl and whisk in vinegar and 2 tablespoons oil. Add tomatoes; season with salt and pepper and toss to coat. Let sit, tossing occasionally, for at least 15 minutes.

Meanwhile, prepare grill for medium-high heat. Brush both sides of bread with remaining 4 tablespoons oil and grill until lightly charred, about 2 minutes per side.

Just before serving, toss herbs with tomato mixture. Spread ricotta on toast and top with tomato mixture; cut toast in half.

**Use very ripe—even overripe—tomatoes; they'll give up even more juice.

** Tomato mixture (without herbs) can be made 12 hours ahead. Cover and chill

Friendly Reminder

When you bring your garbage to the compactor please DO NOT leave it on the edge, be considerate and just push it into the compactor. Otherwise this will cause a chain reaction and we will have a huge pile of garbage piled up outside the compactor. Bulk items and cardboard boxes thrown in the compactor will cause it to shut down. This will also cause a chain reaction of trash bags piled up outside the compactor.

The only way to clear it is for one of our Service Team Members to climb inside the compactor and pull these items out. Not only is this a less than pleasant task, it is also dangerous for our team members.

A cardboard recycling dumpster is provided for boxes. Please break boxes down and dispose of them properly.

Bulk items must be taken to the nearest dump.
