Horizon Audiology

Horizon Audiology is proud to welcome Dr. Lisa Petino to its team. An audiologist for over two decades, Dr. Petino received her Doctorate in Audiology (Au.D.) from the University of Florida. She said that her favorite part of audiology is, “When patients tell me what they just started to hear again, after having forgotten the sounds around them. I had a patient mention that she could hear the water hit the shower door for the first time. She always saw the water hit, but never knew it made a sound. That part never gets old for me.” Dr. Petino and Dr. Brady, owner of Horizon Audiology, are longtime colleagues with an extensive history of working together to improve their patients’ hearing and quality of life. When asked what she is looking forward to at Horizon, Dr. Petino said she is most excited to work with Dr. Brady again. Both doctors are experts in the field and will combine their experience to treat patients with outstanding, individualized care. Considering meeting Dr. Petino? You might be interested to know that Dr. Petino attributes her outstanding success in patient care to her ability to listen to patients and understand their greatest challenges. She’s committed to helping all patients hear to the best of their abilities. Dr. Petino is willing to do whatever it takes to help patients hear better.

SUMMER | 2018 Dear neighbors, We are Hopewell Valley Golf Club and we have been a proud part of this community since 1927. For most of our history, we were member owned and operated. Since November of 2015, my company Spirit Golf Management entered into an agreement to purchase the course with a small group of investors. In August 2016, we closed on the purchase of the course. We love being part of this community and we began instantly to make improvements so that we could welcome you in. It was our hope coming in that there would be an opportunity to preserve this beautiful land and that would provide the needed capital investment to secure the future of this historic property. Without the opportunity to preserve the land, our goals haven’t faltered and we remain committed to great course conditions, open space, fresh food, community events and making you feel really comfortable here. Over the years, you may have driven by us wondering what was down that private driveway. We invite you to drive down and meet us. We are affordable, welcoming, casual, fun, and friendly. We are always happy to make new friends and invite you to stop by even to just say hello. Every week we have events that are open to the public. Tuesday is Ladies’ day. Join in with the guys on Wednesday evenings for a quick nine holes after work or come by Friday night for couples’ Nine and Dine. Find out why the pool is the place to be this time of year. There are lots of games, hammocks, live music events and we are really proud of our award winning swim team. It is a very social scene and chances are good you will run into friends. Stop in and see Jason or Kevin at the bar and then sit under the twinkle lights on the deck. The first Friday of each month we have live music. You can always count on our weekly food specials prepared by Chef Brian. We have some perfect spaces for you to hold events.; from business meetings to birthday parties, from weddings to Bat Mitzvahs. Ask for Colleen and she will give you a tour of the updated ballroom and outdoor spaces that make for the perfect setting for your next event. Our membership remains the core component of the club’s future and it is our hopes to continue to grow and engage more of you. We are grateful for the members who have stood by us and continue to support the idea of opening the doors to allow more of you to experience this amazing and natural beauty of this historic property. We are your club Hopewell and if open space and preservation is important to you we invite you to embrace the club as part of this community. There are so many wonderful memories and stories we hear and we invite you to start making your own. To learn more about our golf passes and membership programs, please call Dave Gilman, Membership Director at 609-466-9070.

In the meantime, we have compiled a list of common questions and concerns that can help you think about what we should talk about. Again, please make time to speak with us about your child. Questions: What math level or course should my child be in school? How can I prepare my child for going back to math class in school? How do I know if my child is struggling in math? How are school behavior and math linked? What do I do for my child who is advanced in math? How is Mathnasium different than other tutoring options? Every child and every situation is unique. These questions will help you think about your children’s math education. Make an appointment with Jennifer to discuss your specific details. Give us a call at (609) 483-6284.
