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.

The World of Appraisals @ The Health & Aquatic Club, Multipurpose Room
Apr 23 @ 10:30 am – 12:30 pm

Old stuff, unique treasures, family heirlooms… is it valuable or is it not? Dave Allen, owner of A&M Auctioneers and Appraisers, Auctioneer, GPPA & CAGA Certified Appraiser, welcomes us to the fascinating world of appraisals! To start, Dave will share with us how appraisals work and the different types of appraisals. After a brief Q&A, he will then spend about an hour verbally approximating the value of items brought in from our very own community!

Although attendance to the seminar is free, if you would like to participate in the unofficial appraisal portion, there is a $10 fee per item that will be charged directly to your membership account, should your item be chosen for appraisal (limit of 10 items). Please email Jennifer Greenawalt at [email protected] with photos of each item that you would like to submit for possible appraisal with a description or any information you have regarding the item. (Please note: your item(s) may or may not be chosen for appraisal. Dave Allen will choose 10 of the submitted items to appraise during the seminar.) You MUST be able to bring your item with you to class for the appraisal. Email submissions accepted until Friday, April 12th.

Recycling in Delaware @ The Health & Aquatic Club, Multipurpose Room
Apr 25 @ 10:30 am – 11:30 am

We all know we are supposed to recycle, but are we doing it properly to maximize our efforts? Are we avoiding the chance of contaminating a whole batch of recycling with one tied bag of recycling, or just one pizza box? Stacey Helmer from Delaware Solid Waste Authority is thrilled to cover the ins and outs of recycling. She will cover what actually is recyclable, how to get rid of special waste items including household hazardous waste, electronics, secure document shredding, Styrofoam, and plastic bags, and she will talk about where recycling goes in Delaware once it leaves Bayside!

Although this class is offered free of charge, preregistration is required.

Morning Meditation
9:00AM to 9:30AM
Hollee Gritz, Meditation Guide
How often do you take the time to take a few moments out of your day to stop and sit still and observe being in the moment?  To simply observe what it is like being YOU?  In today’s busy lifestyle most of us are either running from one activity to the next, checking our phones, thinking about what we did yesterday or what we have to do tomorrow. We are never truly fully living life for what it is, as we let each moment pass us by unnoticed. Mindfulness meditation is a practice that allows one to begin to get in touch with themselves in the present moment.  It is proven to reduces stress, anxiety and to allow people to live fuller lives.
