November is a month of reflection, family time and holiday gatherings for which I am grateful. I am reminded of all that I am thankful for during this season and with that said, I first want to thank all of the families of the Service Members who so unselfishly support their spouse in their mission to protect this great nation. Secondly, I want to thank the members of all armed forces who have chosen to dedicate their lives to protecting not only their family, but the millions of human beings who proudly call themselves Americans.
If you are traveling, please do so safely and with the knowledge that we will keep your home safe and secure while you are away. For those of you who are staying at home for the holiday, we hope you enjoy your time with your family and friends and want you to know that we are here for you if you need us.
So during this season of reflection for all of our blessing, I will keep you all in my thoughts and wish for you and your family’s good health. We at Corvias Military Living wish you all a joyful holiday and will continue to care for all of the families living in our homes.
Our goal is to provide you with the best homes, community, service and value. To let us know how we are performing Corvias Military Living has contracted with ResidentSurveys.com, a division of SatisFacts Research, to conduct a brief online survey.
You will receive a survey notice via a mailed postcard and by email from “residentsurveys.com” (please verify your current email address with the office team). You have the option to include your name with your ratings and comments, or your feedback can be anonymous. As a thank you, for your time, you will be entered in a drawing and you could win a great prize. Your opinion matters and we appreciate your feedback.
Need money for college? Applications for the 2016 Corvias Foundation $50,000 Scholarships and $5,000 Educational Grants for children and spouses of active-duty service members are available after November 1st at corviasfoundation.org.
Winter weather in Kansas can be unpredictable at times and we want residents to be informed and prepared for the upcoming winter months.
The time to prepare for winter weather is here. To protect your belongings this winter, following these simple steps:
- Disconnect hose from all outside water faucets now to help avoid frozen pipes.
- If you plan on leaving your home for an extended period of time, keep the heat on to prevent pipes from freezing. Leave your thermostat set between 60 and 65 degrees.
- Following a snow or ice storm, Corvias Military Living's contractor will clear or treat all streets, public sidewalks and parking lots in each community. A system is in place to clear main roads first to allow emergency vehicle access and then proceed to clear all residential streets.
- We request your patience and help during the times roadways are being treated by limiting travel. Please park vehicles only in approved parking areas and avoid blocking sidewalks.
- Residents are encouraged to keep their private porch, sidewalk and driveway free of snow and ice to avoid slips and falls. Complimentary traction control material will be available at your Community Office.
Black Friday, the day after Thanksgiving, is touted as the biggest shopping day of the year and the beginning of the holiday shopping season. This can also be a stressful time, as gift giving can quickly “gobble” up your hard-earned money. Don’t fret – we’ve got some quick and easy tips to ensure that your many purchases don’t burn a hole in your wallet.
- Before you hit the stores, be aware of where your finances currently stand. Only purchase items that you are confident you can afford.
- Create a budget specifically for holiday shopping. Follow your budget as closely as possible, and track your spending. Need help? Contact the Financial Readiness Program at 337-531-1957.
- Ask for military discounts wherever you go. Even if stores do not advertise the discount, ask – you may be pleasantly surprised to hear the answer.
- Shop around. Look at the circulars for sales and discounts. Recognize a good price when you see one.
- Follow your gut instincts – if you think a potential gift is too much for you to spend, look for something else at a lower price.
- Cyber Monday, anyone? Check for last minute deals and steals online on Monday, December 2nd.
- Some of the best gifts come from the heart and cost nothing at all. Be creative!
- Don’t forget to stop, relax, and enjoy the season with your family and friends. That’s really what it is all about.
How can you save energy when cooking your Thanksgiving dinner? Don’t open the oven door while you’re cooking! Instead, turn on the oven light and check on your food through the oven window.
