Enriching Lives

Bayside Institute LogoHere at Bayside, we value our abilities in offering unparalleled opportunities for family fun and togetherness. Time with loved ones at Bayside is precious, whether it’s kayaking with the kids, playing golf or tennis with friends, or swaying with neighbors to the sounds of a great outdoor concert. But, let’s be honest. Once in awhile you need to take a little time for yourself…

Imagine grabbing a cup of coffee and slipping out the door to greet the morning sun. Hop on your bike and ride to the Point to discover a new hobby or ignite an undiscovered passion. Start your day by sharing your personal story in creative writing, enhancing your wellness with a healthy cooking class or learning to arrange flowers beautifully. Spend a quiet afternoon learning unique local history or wind down another beautiful day in Fenwick Island with a wine tasting by the bay.

As an innovative year-round program, Bayside Institute will enrich lives by giving our members the gift of meaningful “me” time. Learn new skills, explore new subjects, embrace hobbies and share wisdom—in any number of fascinating interest areas. This is about you: “me” time is priceless.

Flooding: How Bad Might it Get? @ The Health & Aquatic Club, Multipurpose Room
Apr 26 @ 5:30 pm – 6:30 pm

We review what scientists have learned concerning the causes of Climate Change and its anticipated effects on Sussex County coastal flooding. FEMA looks backwards at historical flooding records to construct flood maps. This approach has a key weakness in accuracy because it does not take into account the expectations for additional flooding frequencies onward into the future. We will look at the latest projections for flooding and then examine some recommended actions that need to be taken. This is an interactive, non-partisan presentation with opportunities for questions and comments from the participants.

Dr. Ted Spickler is a retired professor of physics from West Virginia and is also retired from Bayer Material Science (Pittsburgh) where he served as manager of business excellence. Ted is a graduate of West Chester University with a BA in Natural Science, Xavier University (Cincinnati) with a MS in Physics, and West Virginia University with a Doctorate in Quantitative Methods.  He was recently trained as a leader in climate change by the Climate Reality Project and is a volunteer with Citizens Climate Lobby. During his professor years he taught some meteorology and has presented nationally at conferences of the American Chemical Society, the American Association for the Advancement of Science, the American Physical Society, and the American Society for Quality.

Spring Birding @ The Bayside Welcome Center
May 3 @ 4:00 pm – 6:00 pm

Let’s see how many  beautiful spring migrants we can spot! The positioning of the Delmarva peninsula creates a fascinating funnel effect on migrant patterns, naturally encouraging many migrants to pass through the area. Lace up your walking shoes as we explore Bayside for the birds! Some driving may be required as may travel to a few different areas throughout the neighborhood. Please bring a pair of binoculars to maximize your experience.

Selecting Swimwear @ The Health & Aquatic Club, Multipurpose Room
May 17 @ 10:30 am – 11:15 am

Swimsuit season is almost here, are you ready?

Trying on swimwear is well, miserable! We worked so hard all winter and now as we stand in front of the illuminated mirror, squeezed into the total wrong size, we just want to curl up on the couch with a pint of Ben & Jerry’s. Trust me, we have ALL been there! Banish that thought though! At Body Double Swimwear in Fenwick Island they promise you will leave feeling great, oozing confidence and counting down the minutes until beach season arrives. Join owner of Body Double Swimwear, Liz Welsh, learn about the do’s and don’ts of picking out swimwear. Do you wear a size AA or H cup bra? Do you swim laps everyday in the chlorine? Are you one size on the top and a total different size on the bottom? During our chat she’ll explain what to look for and what to avoid when swimwear shopping based on your body type, show you material and fit options, and most importantly prove to you that you will find a swimsuit you absolutely LOVE!
