“Perseverance is not giving up – It is persistence and
tenacity, the effort required to do something and keep
doing it till the end, even if it's hard.”
Creating a club experience that exceeds expectations is a goal that I, and the
entire service team at Serenata, have been working towards – and although
achievement of such a distinguished task can be challenging and elusive, we
keep at it. We are persistent in our development and delivery of programs,
services and activities for our members to enjoy; and tenacious in continually
setting high standards for our club staff, facilities and amenities. It may be a grand
vision – but it is one that I sincerely believe in, and continue with perseverance
to deliver to our membership.
So, what can we work on to exceed your expectations? We have continued
training sessions with our staff to reinforce the Serenata C.O.R.E. – principles
of Caring, Ownership, Respect and Excellence that are intended to guide our
daily actions for increased employee engagement and member satisfaction.
We review the Serenata facilities and operations on an ongoing basis to recognize
areas needing improvement or attention. And we ask our members to
communicate their positive experiences, as well as encounters that didn’t hit the
mark of their expectations. I appreciate and thank those who care enough about
their club to express thoughts and ideas in constructive and productive manners.
Our Culinary Team has been busy crafting new menus for the new season –
with a refreshed Sea Turtle Café Menu presented during Spring Break, and the
launch of our newest Casual Menu at the end of March. Executive Chef Eric and
Sous Chef Charlie have infused their passion and dedication into the current
selections, and hope you enjoy. We all share this perseverance to keep at the
efforts to exceed our members’ expectations with energy and focus because we
truly believe Serenata provides an exceptional beach club experience.
As we continue into the spring with optimism and anticipation of the beautiful
days at Serenata Beach ahead, we hope you’ll join us as we get more active in
our spectacular outdoor spaces. Easter Brunch is a wonderful family occasion to
enjoy the seaside buffet with visits by the Easter Bunny. We hope to ease the
pain of Tax Day on April 15 with our Low Country Boil – served at the table Family
Style. Moms are invited for a Day Out with an informative Fitness Seminar and
lunch; and our Health, Wellness & Fitness Expo will present a variety of positive
living options. And we’re starting a new Sunday tradition with our Sunset Sunday
Grill & Chill Cookout this month. We’ll close down the Casual Menu at 4 p.m. and
offer a basic buffet with selections fresh off the grill to complete your meal.
Be sure to also enjoy our Dive-In Movie, Golf Outing and Poolside Music in April.
With all this, I look forward to seeing you at the beach!
