Dear Valued Customer:

Bright House Networks would like to take this time to thank you for the opportunity to serve your community. As you know Bright House Networks is always improving our products and services. Please be advised that we will be realigning channels on our network effective May 20th.

This realignment necessitates the relocation of your Community Channel located on channel 9 to a new channel location of 97. This will impact all of SOLIVITA customers with Analog services. Customers that subscribe to Digital cable services will continue to access the Community Channel on channel 704. Only customers with Scientific Atlanta digital converters will be able to view the Community Channel. Customers that have Cisco or Samsung brand converters may ask to have them exchanged for Scientific Atlanta converters.

Within the next few days a BHN representative will be onsite to perform this channel relocation. If you have any further questions or concerns please contact the Bright House Networks Customer Service Line at 407-291-2500.

At Bright House Networks, we value your business relationship and thank you for the opportunity to service your community.

New Gym Equipment For Solivita

Posted by admin March - 30 - 2013 - Saturday ADD COMMENTS

Well guys the new gym equipment for the Riviera Spa & Fitness Center has arrived. I worked out with it for the first time this week and was very impressed. The only down side was that the weights on some of the machines are not heavy enough for a big guy like me.

The treadmills and bikes have internet access so you can get your cardio and play on Facebook at the same time!!

By the way, the new equipment only works if you actually go to the gym and use it. Three days a week for an hour a day will change your life.

I’m there on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays from roughly 11-1. If you see me say “Hi”. I’d be happy to give you a demonstration on the new equipment.

SoliVita Happenings For March

Posted by admin March - 17 - 2013 - Sunday ADD COMMENTS

New Equipment is Arriving

The Gym area at the Riviera Spa and Fitness Center will be closed Thursday, March 21st, through Saturday, March 23rd. It will reopen Sunday, March 24th at 7am. Because of the size of our delivery we will be removing and replacing the equipment pieces using the front doors for access. During this time period, all classes and pool areas will be accessible by using the side entrance doors. Additionally, some of our old equipment will be departing as early as Wednesday, March 20th so that it can be moved to a new location. The gym will not be closed during this process, we ask for your patience as we will have equipment and workers moving about.

Indoor Pool Closings

The Indoor Pool at the Riviera Fitness Center will be closed on Friday, March 22nd and on Saturday, March 23rd while we replace the hardware for the lane divider.We will reopen Sunday, March 24th at 7am. Joint Relief class will be cancelled due to this closure.

Painting at the Bella Viana Amenity Center

The exterior of the amenity center will be painted beginning on Monday, March 18th. The maintenance work will not affect the operation of the center, and the facility will remain open during this time.

Thank You!

The Lifestyles Team would like to thank all the Club Presidents and Leaders for attending the club meeting on Tuesday. We are really glad to hear everyone is reading the new Policy and Procedure packets. A few clubs have even come to us with some good questions and ideas for the packets to better communicate the policies. This being said there has also been a misunderstanding that the Lifestyles Team needs all Solivita Club to fill out the “Prospective Club/Group Information and list their members names again. We only need prospective new clubs to fill this out, if they want to form a new club. We appreciate you taking the time to make sure all your club information is up to date and correct. Please call or email us if you have any other questions or concerns. Thank you and have a wonderful Solivita Day.

Sheri Wollschlager, Director of Lifestyles/Activities
