Welcome to Forest Glen Condominiums' Independent Website

  

WE ARE A SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH, community of 130 or so owners and several renters who share 17 buildings, a swimming pool, a tennis court, a clubhouse with a fully equipped fitness center, 4 ponds, and about 10 grassy acres on Elizabeth Street in Sugar House—one of the nation's 10 Great Neighborhoods.

  

We want this website to be part of the Forest Glen community. If you live here, let us know what you would like added to this site and we’ll try to make it happen. If you don’t live here, well, we’re sorry about that. (Try checking the units for sale or rent.)

 

 Goings-On

New glass recycling location
A nearby place to bring discarded glass has just been set up on Ashton Ave right behind 24-Hour Fitness
(1121 E Ashton Ave). We are asked to not deposit automotive glass, ceramics, light bulbs, mirrors, porcelain, or Pyrex. No need to rinse bottles or remove labels.

Super lunar eclipse
On Wednesday, January 31st, when
the sun, moon and earth all line up (with the earth in the middle), we will be able to see a blue moon, a total lunar eclipse, and a glowing supermoon all at once. (A blue moon is the term used for a second full moon in a calendar month.) You can find the time for each phase of the eclipse in Salt Lake City here.

 Requited love in Sugar House
At 7:30 PM on February 2nd and February 3rd, Westminster Opera Studio will present Elixir of Love, a "classic, comedic opera blended and bottled by the one and only Gaetano Donizetti," at the Vieve Gore Concert Hall (1250 E 1700 S). Tickets are $10 and can be purchased here.



Forthcoming clubhouse talk
In the clubhouse on Thursday, Feb 22nd, at 7 PM, Terry Begay will tell us about her "Travels through hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and Maria." (Questions: Phyllis Frankel,  p1863f at yahoo dot com.)

 The Sprague is open

... wikipedia/commons/0/0f/Sprague_Library_1.JPG | 1900 houses | PinterestAlthough the lower level rooms, including the restrooms, are still not accessible, the Sprague library is pretty much functional. The kids' books are upstairs for the time being, and you can again snuggle in front of the reading room fireplace and browse through newspapers and magazines. As far as restroom needs go, there's always Barnes & Noble. If you would like to make a donation to help with the post-flood repairs, you can do so here.

Storytime for kids will continue to take place on Wednesdays at Legacy Village (1212 E. Wilmington Ave), level 5 -- Book Baby (ages 0–2), 10:15-11:15 AM; Preschool Storytime (ages 3–5), 10:15 AM to 12:15 PM.
