Holiday Greetings from Our General Manager

Dear Members:

imgAs I write to you for probably the last time in 2013, I am thankful for a truly wonderful year at The Hills. We've been working hard to improve all aspects of the club's operations, and you've played an important part by sharing your suggestions and comments throughout the year.

One thing we've heard is that you'd like to see some healthier menu choices in our cafe. As of this week, we will discontinue cafe service during the slow winter months as we usually do. When we reopen in April, our goal is to have a new manager in place. We're planning to add fresh, organic selections and to offer more professional and friendly service. I hope these changes will enhance the club experience for you and your family.

Speaking of improvements we're planning, we will put up a display with preliminary renderings of the expanded gym facility. Look for the plans in the lobby in the coming few weeks. This is another area of the club we are focused on because you've consistently asked for more space and equipment options. I look forward to your comments once you've had a chance to check out the display.

I want to remind you that the club will be closed on Christmas and New Years Day so that our staff can spend the holidays with their families. However, at your request, we extended the club hours on Christmas Eve and New Years Eve to 4pm, so you can get in your workout before relaxing on the holidays.

I'm wishing our entire membership and our wonderful staff the happiest of holiday seasons!

To your health,
