I hope this holiday season finds you and your family in a festive spirit. The holidays are the perfect time to spend with family and friends, catching up on lost time throughout the year and preparing the way for the New Year. With many of loved ones deployed this holiday season, it remains our priority to ensure that the holidays are enjoyed by the families of Eglin AFB.
We look forward to seeing you and your family as Santa and his elves will be visiting the Warrior Landing Community Center on Thursday, Dec. 8 for our annual ‘Tis the Season event. Along with a free picture opportunity with Santa, families can enjoy delicious refreshments, holiday crafts and much more. Remember, Santa is only with us for a short time, so make arrangements now to attend and be sure to bring your wish list!
All of us at Corvias Military Living want to wish you and your family a warm and joyous holiday season. It is our sincere pleasure to be able to care for and serve our military families. We appreciate the sacrifices you make daily to serve and care for our nation and the freedoms we cherish so much.
Winter holidays are a time for families and friends to get together. But that also means a greater risk for fire. Following a few simple tips will ensure a happy and fire-safe holiday season
Our annual ‘Tis the Season event will be held at the Warrior Landing Community Center on Thursday December 8th from 2:00 pm to 5:00 pm. Join Santa and Mrs. Clause for an afternoon of fun. Bring your cameras for pictures with Santa, and bring your sweet tooth for cookies and hot chocolate with Mrs. Clause. There will also be crafts and prizes. This event is free for all on base residents.
Corvias encourages families to join in the fun of decorating their home for the holidays. We will be awarding one family a $25 gift card. The winner will be announced on December 15th.
There are a few friendly reminders that we ask you keep in mind before you begin decorating.
Please make sure all decorations placed on the home are done so in a safe manner. Take every precaution to ensure none of the decorations pose a fire threat to you or your neighbor’s home. This also includes ensuring all emergency personal and vehicles have access to your home should there be an emergency. All decorations placed in or around the home must have the Underwriter’s Laboratories, Inc. (UL) approval.
No decoration should be placed on the roof of your home. Many times the nails, along with the extra weight of the decorations, can cause damage to the roof resulting in leaks. If you are hanging outdoor lights, please use approved plastic clips to attach the lights to the roof line.
Finally, all decorations should be removed from the exterior of the homes within two weeks after the holiday. This provides everyone ample time to take down their decorations and store them.
If you have any questions regarding the policy on decorations please refer your Resident Responsibility Guide (RRG).
The average American spends more than $1,000 during the holiday season. Much of that spending is on credit cards, which means that many people face big bills in the New Year. The key to keeping holiday spending (or almost any kind of spending) under control is planning and sticking to a budget. By planning your holiday spending carefully, you can save money and still keep the holidays happy. Remember to start early! Sometimes bargains can be found months in advance.

Please remove outside water hoses from hose bibs to ensure water lines do not freeze and break once the weather gets colder.

Turn off holiday decorations when no one is home and at night before you go to bed. Timers are a great way to ensure the lights are only on at certain times.
