Cards can be obtained from the Welcome Desk for a $10.00 deposit, refunded upon the return of the card in good condition. You can add value to the card by using the reload machines located in the Trinity laundry room and in the entrance hallway at St. Hilda’s.  There is no refund of any balance remaining on the card.

Summer residents and guests are asked to keep noise within reasonable bounds. If you receive a noise complaint, please act promptly on it.
