It’s June? Julying. It’s that time of the year again for our Annual Fish Fry! Swim like the fishes and eat them with us. Summer officially starts on June 21, and we’ll be ringing it in with a Tropical Pool Party! We’ll have fresh fruits to munch on and a stick to limbo under. Don’t miss out!
— From Your Northgate Staff
- It’s getting warm outside, which means your AC will have to work a bit harder. Keep the temperature set between 74–78 degrees to limit any utility overages.
- Remind your guests that their cars should be in the guest gravel lot in the back of the property after 8 p.m.
- Please remember that pets that haven’t been approved through the office are not allowed on the property! If you have any questions about possibly bringing a pet, please contact the office.
- Come to the office if you have any issues, and we’ll be happy to put in a work order for you.
Reminders & Updates
It’s officially summer, so here are some tips to beat the heat:
- Drink plenty of water — During the hot summer months, heat and sweat can leave your body dehydrated. A lack of water is harmful to your body and can also make you crave food when you’re not actually hungry.
- Exfoliate — Summer means an increase of dead skin cells, so it’s important to exfoliate your skin to keep it smooth and silky.
- Protect your glossy locks — If you’re planning on swimming a lot during the summer, it’s advisable to use anti-chlorine shampoo and conditioner to help neutralize the chlorine from your hair.
- Keep up your exercise regime — Instead of working out outside, take your exercise plan indoors. Join a gym, take up a step class, or gather a group of friends for an afternoon of exercise DVDs.
