Memorial Day at Glen Ivy

I think it important to remember the intention of Memorial Day and reflect on all we have to be thankful for at Glen Ivy, in our own lives and as part of the larger world community.

Glen Ivy had been operating for six years when Decoration Day was first commemorated in 1868 to honor the Union Army soldiers killed in the Civil War.  After World War I the day was expanded to include remembrances for the fallen of all wars and military actions.

In 1919, during World War I a poem was written commemorating the soldiers who died and were buried in Flander’s Field in Belgium. The red poppy which grew wild in the fields became a symbol of remembrance for those soldiers.

Glen Ivy annually supports troops serving in different locations.  This year we will invite our guests to join us in supporting our troops by purchasing Red Poppy Cookies made for us by Angel Wings Bakery with 100% of their profits going directly to sustaining services that help break the cycle of poverty and homelessness.  For every cookie purchased we will donate a Taking the Waters Admission pass to the Camp Pendleton Officers Spouses Club.  It is not only important to support our soldiers but the families of our deployed troops.   We will also be writing cards to a soldiers which will be part of a care package we are putting together for a special designated troop.

Thank you for your support.

All my best,

Jim Root, CEO/President

In Flanders Fields

By: Lt. Colonel John McCrae, MD (1872-1918)

 In Flanders Fields the poppies blow

Between the crosses, row on row,

That mark our place; and in the sky

The larks, still bravely singing, fly

Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead.  Short days ago

We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,

Loved and where loved, and now we lie

In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:

To you from failing hands we throw

The torch; be yours to hold it high.

If ye break faith with us who die

We shall not sleep though poppies grow

In Flounders fields.

Last Guest Of 2014… First Guest Of 2015

In 2014, Glen Ivy Hot Springs welcomed 165,000+ guests who joined us to spend a day creating memorable and meaningful experience to add to their year. With our 155th Anniversary year upon us, 2015 is already off to a great start. Our guests are very special to us, so we wanted to introduce you to our last guests of 2014, as well as our first of 2015.

Celena and Raul closed out 2014 with a day filled with our signature treatments, the famed Glen Ivy Club Mud and healing waters. “Glen Ivy is like a great oasis to escape to. I keep coming back spa so I can share my experience with new people, including Raul,” said Celena. A guest of Glen Ivy’s for over 10 years, Celena is eager to try the Grotto on her next visit.

Cheri Frost, and her children Kaysie and Trevor were Glen Ivy’s first guests of 2015. Cheri is a true Glen Ivy staple, returning to the hot springs year upon year. While Kaysie has joined her mom in the past, this visit was a celebration for Trevor’s 16th birthday, and first visit. An avid swimmer and water polo player, Trevor spent his time in the lap pool, while Cheri & Kaysie enjoy Club Mud, and the Grotto. Of course, they also just enjoyed some quality family time relaxing in the lush surroundings.

We appreciate all of our guests, who joined us in 2014, and have already made 2015 very special. Your support throughout the years truly makes us what we are. Glen Ivy is looking forward to seeing you as we continue to give you memorable and meaningful experiences every day in the New Year!
