A big thank you to the Cossa’s for organizing Easter morning’s Brunch and Easter Egg Hunt. We had a Party Room full of eager kids, adoring parents .. and cameras. Not to forget the food and a real live Easter Bunny. Laura and Ricardo appreciated the many folks who helped, among them Don Yuratovic, David Nicosia, and William Kay.
Lester Longe, our longest-serving employee will retire on June 12 after 32 years as a Park Tower doorman. He takes a lot of history with him, and his shoes will be hard shoes to fill. We’ve trusted Lester to manage our “front door,” make visitors welcome, and greet returning residents. For all those years he has also lived in the building, and we’re very, very pleased that he’ll continue to be a resident. Please stop by to thank him for his years of service and wish him well.
Many thanks to our new plumber, Louis, for getting the Association free water-saving faucets for the health club and mall washrooms. These new faucets operate much like others you have seen with infrared sensors, and typically would be several hundred dollars a pop installed. He was able to get nine free, sample fixtures and will be trying to do the same for all common area facilities. This will save us time and money on future repairs, and is already saving us many gallons of water every day. Thanks Louie!
Well-deserved thanks to our janitors – pretty much all of them – who helped from time to time with the extra work needed to get the garbage out of the building while the hydraulic elevator on 1P was being serviced. It was a team effort – not only were they manually removing the garbage, other employees needed to make up the difference elsewhere in the building to make up for the lost time. Way to go team!
