Vendor Services Book:  This is a book that is meant to be helpful to all residents. There are sections for each vendor, electrician, plumber, etc.  If you have had a service at your home please take a moment to complete information in the book, name of service provider, phone number and a comment on their service positive or negative.  This will assist other residents in choosing a quality service provider. It will also help the service provider in gaining new customers.  However, in order for this to be successful you need to take a few minutes to fill out the information. What better way to promote a positive experience that to share the information? As well as if a provider didn’t deliver the quality of service you are helping another resident to not have to go through a bad experience.  On the inside cover is listed Grove residents that also provide services. This book is located on the table in the library. 

The trip to the WWI museum has been canceled for the time being.  We will look to 2021 to reschedule. 

If you are hosting an event please make sure that you disinfect the tables after your event.  If you used the kitchen disinfect the counters also. If something spilled on the floor please wipe it up. You will find the disinfectant (7th Generation Disinfectant Professional) sitting on the counter in the kitchen. Please return it to the kitchen when done. Empty your trash and replace with a garbage bag.  This goes for the bar area outside as well. If you are using the bar area please disinfect it before you leave and empty your trash.
