Several Policy Requests 1 J. Gill Here is a policy statement I am working on. But I am need of other community policies before I present to our board. W. POLITICAL ACTIONThe Grace Ridge community is a non-profit corporation, and as such cannot become involved in political action. We respect the privacy of all Grace Ridge residents, and will make every effort to see that they are not exposed to political action.Grace Ridge internal mail cannot be used for political action, nor will it be permitted that bulletin boards be used for this purpose. Grace Ridge has no control over the U.S. Mail, and as such, resident mail boxes are not filtered for containment of political material.Residents who wish to hold political meetings in their personal homes may do so. You may also reserve common areas of Grace Ridge for your privately-sponsored political programs. However, in such cases you may not publicize the event through Grace Ridge communication processes.

Art Room 3 J. Gill Attached are some photos of our new studio space. I can get proper ones of the woodworking shop if you need. I thought you might also be interested in the lockers that can be “rented” (for free) for residents to keep their personal projects/supplies.

Bocce Court 24 J. Gill We have a HUGE croquet group here on campus! We probably have 60 croquet players if not more. The croquet court was installed on campus and we pay to have it maintained. The croquet players have a staff liaison who helps coordinate big events such as the tournaments on campus with food/work orders. The croquet players have a resident committee who organizes play and there are groups of 4 that play together at scheduled times weekly. The croquet players are very particular about their court and no other activities are allowed to happen on that space. Bocce is something we are trying to get going. The bocce court was overgrown and used only to walk over to get to the croquet court. However, we have a new resident who wants to get bocce started so we cleared off the court and had it repainted and refurbished this fall. I ordered indoor bocce sets and we had a “Bocce, Beer and Bruschetta” event in the wellness center this winter to get people moving and learning about bocce. We are hoping it increases in participation once it is warm enough to play outside.

ER Companionship Program 5 J. Gill Our community does provide an ER companionship service for IL residents during an unfortunate circumstance where they are sent to the ER. This is an optional service for a resident, who might not have a friend or family member to accompany them at that time.We have a rotating list of employees who are on-call to accompany a resident if needed.Our staff simply meets the resident at the hospital, ensures they are comfortable, and is there to provide a familiar face. Each scenario is unique; however, the expectation is to provide a friendly smile and comfort. Staff is expected to stay no more than 20 to 30 minutes.
