As of tomorrow, the monthly Dining Dollars will be loaded into your accounts and we will start charging the accounts as of tomorrow. Reminder that we are not charging the takeout or delivery charges (2 dollars and 1 dollar) while we continue during this pandemic. If you have any questions about the process as we move forward, please ask someone from dining or myself.
As a reminder, we are ONLY seating groups of 2 and 4 and we ONLY have a very small number of tables of 4 available. The limited seating and limited time for meal completion do require us to sometimes break up groups so we can get you all taken care of effectively. I understand the minor inconvenience and frustration, but would ask you all to recognize that this is done for your safety AND the safety of our staff. We have had a few instances where tables of 4 have been overstaying their allotted time for their meals. I don’t want to embarrass or start a disagreement during your meal time, but we do need to service all of our community members and just because you sit at a table at 4 does not mean it is yours until closing time. 5 pm seating needs to start so we can have them done and have the tables available for the 6:15pm seatings. The lag becomes cumulative, so you are affecting others with your resistance to leave your table.
Also, please be on time for your seating, or you do risk being asked to wait for the next seating or we will provide you with takeout to enjoy. This only works with all parts working as efficiently as possible.
The in room visits continue in IL and we have started the Meadows outside visits this week. Starting Saturday, the Pines will also begin outside visits. You will see signs, but please avoid the area around the gazebo as we will be using this area for Pines visits for the time being.
Thank you all and have a good weekend!
