Driving through the gates of Harbour Ridge, a waterfront community in Palm City, Florida, it’s hard not to feel instantly more relaxed. The picturesque property is part of the region’s Treasure Coast, on the shores of the St. Lucie River, with views straight from a postcard. And it isn’t merely the scenery that washes away worries; it’s Harbour Ridge’s commitment to providing a safe sense of normalcy in unprecedented times.
“When the pandemic hit, many members shared that they felt like life remained mostly unchanged as they were in their ‘safety bubble,’” says Michael J. Salerno, general manager and COO of Harbour Ridge Yacht & Country Club. “They were still comfortable enjoying life here safely. Seasonal residents stayed longer than they would typically — with staff providing grocery deliveries, an onsite green market, the ability to golf and boat, and a host of other activities.”
As residents return to the property to reconnect with loved ones over the holidays, the staff is doubling down on these comforts with many of their annual festive events in place, albeit altered for safety. For instance, this year’s 5K Turkey Trot will be held virtually.
“We still have our family-friendly outdoor Winter Wonderland event, complete with snow, cookie decorating and pictures with Santa at our riverfront dining venue, Dockside,” Salerno says. “And there’s a holiday boat parade and outdoor tree lighting ceremony for all members and their families to safely enjoy by the riverfront. We are continuing to plan events for the season as best and safely as possible.”
Those remaining physically distant from relatives outside of their immediate household during a time of year when family is everything can still take solace in the warmth of such a close-knit community.
“Our staff gets to know our members, their families and guests,” says Salerno. “They have a service-led heart where they genuinely want to help and provide memories that last a lifetime.”
