Bartram Bulletin

November 2023 Edition

Hello Bartram Springs Families!

It has been a beautiful autumn, and we have enjoyed having the neighborhood join us for our annual Fall events. But Santa will be here before we know it! We have a lot of holiday season events; please know that while registration goes fast for these popular events, we never want to turn a resident away. The best thing to do if you have trouble getting in is to just call us! Many times the starting number of open reservations is based on how many participants we had the previous year, other times it's a matter of staffing. But please know if there is a way to include you, we will! You just have to let us know. We want everyone to have a chance to join in on the festivities!

We also continue to work on the annual Access Card Audit. If you haven't already, please bring all of the members of your household to the office to update your photos, and you will be entered into the raffle for a fun treat basket!

As always, I love hearing from you. Don't hesitate to reach out with any questions or concerns.

Thank you,

Sue O'Lear

General Manager

Amenity Contact Information


At Bartram Springs we have management either ON DUTY or ON CALL during all hours the office is open. Facility attendants have myriad ways to communicate with On Call managers so there is rarely a delay in assisting residents. Further, our contact information is readily available to anyone who stops by the window. It is our goal to respond to questions and concerns in the most effective and timely manner possible!

General Manager, Sue O'Lear, is on-call for urgent matters 24-7 and can be reached via email or cell/text by residents and staff as needed. Her on-property schedule changes weekly, with the goal being to make herself available to a wide range of residents who use the facility at various times. Now that the Slide is closed for the season, she is going back to working primarily Monday - Friday, with weekends on a more occasional or as needed basis. Never hesitate to reach out with questions or concerns!

Operations Manager, Winslow Wheeler is typically on the property Monday-Friday from 8-4, with on-call availability in the evenings/on weekends as needed.

Assistant Amenity Manager, Stephanie Taylor, is typically in the office Tuesday - Saturday, with actual hours to vary based on staffing needs/activities/events.

Facility Attendants are available in the front office 6 days a week and can answer a wide variety of questions. If they cannot help with yours for any reason, they are happy to share management contact information with you!
