The aerobics classes are fun and offered frequently (generally around lunch time and dinner time on weekdays, and I think there are some saturday classes too). —RachelBlumenthal

In case anyone's hearing anything in the rumor mill, we're not closing or relocating any time soon. We're part of that 5-year plan due in 18 months that was due 12 months ago. We expect to stay on site and actually have a larger facility, although it will depend on how much funding we can extract.

Oh, and this year our annual Deep Cleaning shutdown dates are (tentatively) August 29 through September 1. —DaveMahon
