SUGGESTION BOX – Dean Koulouris reported that an up-to-date summary of suggestions is available after the meeting.  He also reminded residents that it is important to include their names and contact information on the suggestion form.  Jean Reed emphasized this point, saying that anonymous suggestions are not up for consideration. 

INTRODUCTION OF CANDIDATES FOR RESIDENT COUNCIL – Frank Hart introduced the candidates for the 2019 Resident Council:  Harry Amos, Anne Blacksten, Claudia Blake, Marjorie Fisher, Fred Hohlweg, Eleanor Karro, Diana Reyher, Art Welch.   Frank thanked Mollie Warner for her assistance in recruiting candidates and preparing for the upcoming campaign.  Candidate pictures and bio’s will be on display in the rotunda during the month of November. 

RESIDENT SERVICES REPORT– Joan Lewis described the work of the Resident Services Committee which meets monthly to promote coordination between committees and collaboration with the Resident Services Department.  Representatives from the Arts, Fitness, Movies, Music, Trips and Outings, Transportation, and Volunteers participate.  Joan then went on to introduce Tiffany Proctor, newly appointed Director of the Resident Services Department. 

Tiffany’s presentation described the role that the Resident Services Department plays in the GHBC community.  The department includes:

  • Fitness and Wellness
  • Therapeutic Recreation
  • The Art Center
  • Volunteers
  • Cultural Arts and Events
  • Oversight of the Residents Business Center, birthday lists, game room, room reservations, Tuesday movies.

Tiffany said there her office will remain in the Resident Services Suite.  She encouraged us all to participate in the committees and to offer any suggestions we may have for speakers and activities that would benefit the GHBC community. 

Tiffany also announced that there is going to be a campus-wide upgrade of digital signage.  Current screens will be up-dated and additional screens will be installed to alert residents to daily and special events.  She ended by reminding us that with the holidays approaching we can anticipate lots of decorations and a Holiday Party on December 13th.. 

Questions:  How will the digital signage be different from what is currently in the facility?  Tiffany said it will involve new technology and additional screens. 

RESIDENT WEB SITE UPDATE – Claudia Blake, webmaster for operations for the resident website   www.ghbcresidents.org, displayed on screen and described the website.  The site was t created 4 years ago for the residents of GHBC.  Claudia told us that Donita Moorhus was initially responsible for the design and focus of the website and is still an important part of the team of residents who manage the site on a day to day basis.  The website is meant to relay information to residents and is now being used as a means of communication within the community.  Residents use the website often to make JDR reservations, look-up other residents, and learn about coming events.  In the next few days, a link to The WorxHub will be established for all residents.  This will be our means of submitting maintenance requests. 

At the end of Claudia’s presentation, Jean Reed reminded residents that minutes of all Resident Council business meetings and Community meetings can be found on the website. 

Question: What if we don’t know how to get onto the website?  What is the website address?  Claudia said that this would be addressed at the Newcomers’ Meeting on Tuesday, November 6th, will be in the Board Room, where residents can bring their own devices and participate in a tutorial about the website.  Everyone is welcome. 

Question:  Could “a blog” be made part of the website so residents could communicate with each other?  Claudia said that the website is meant to inform and assist residents as they communicate with staff.  The concept of “a blog” is not part of this design. 

At the conclusion of the presentation, Claudia reminded us that Volunteer Hours can now be recorded though a form on the website and Jean encouraged residents to learn about the committees through the website. 

ANNOUNCEMENTS 

Otto Reinbacher, Co-Chair of the Employee Gift Fund Committee, encouraged residents to “be generous” in the spirit of this year’s fund theme:  Live, Thank, Give 

Tiffany Proctor announced that “Like War” by P.W. Singer can be purchased at a 37% discount.  There are notices in the business office which explain how to go about this purchase. 

FUTURE MEETINGS—Jean Reed reminded residents that there will be two more important meetings this week:

  • Resident Community Semi-Annual Meeting – “GHI and GHBC Present and Future” with Justin Carwile, Executive Director, GHBC; Mary Hix, Chairman of the Board. GHI; and Kathy Anderson, President and Chief Executive Officer – Nov 7, 1:00 p.m., Auditorium
