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.

30 Days to Organization – New Date! @ The Health & Aquatic Club, Multipurpose Room
Mar 5 @ 2:00 pm – 3:30 pm

RESCHEDULED DATE! Now to be held on Tuesday, March 5th with a follow up date to be announced.

We set resolutions, we set goals, but somewhere along the way, our best laid plans and intentions fall apart.  It’s time to say goodbye to unnecessary clutter and hello to a peaceful, organized home or space.

Join us to be a part of the “30 DAY DECLUTTERING & ORGANIZING CHALLENGE” Workshop.

This 30-day checklist can give you the motivation you need to clear the clutter and start enjoying your home again.  You don’t even have to start on the first of the month, just start TODAY and follow your personal plan for the next 30 days.

As a group, with professional organizer, Sharon Knowles, we will discuss ideas for your personal calendar, ways to tackle your chosen daily challenges and ways to help stick to it.  Your challenge doesn’t have to be your home.  It can be a room in your home, an office, OR it can simply be a “Happiness” Challenge.
