In 1986, the Department of Defense designated April as Military Child month. This special celebration was established to recognize the important role children play in the Armed Forces community. During this month, we recognize the sacrifices of our military children and celebrate their strength, courage, and resilience. Our youngest heroes serve by adapting to frequent moves, change of schools, parental deployments, and life transitions.
In conjunction with Month of the Military Child, Purple Up! is an initiative calling the community to show support for children in military families. Why purple? Purple is the color that symbolizes all branches of the military, as it is a combination of Army green, Marine red, and Navy, Air Force and Coast Guard blue.
In honor of all the Military Children, we share the poem the Dandelion – The Flower of the Military Child.
The Dandelion – The Flower of the Military Child
"The official flower of the military child is the dandelion. Why? The plant puts down roots almost anywhere, and it's almost impossible to destroy. It's an unpretentious plant, yet good looking. It's a survivor in a broad range of climates. Military children bloom everywhere the winds carry them. They are hardy and upright. Their roots are strong, cultivated deeply in the culture of the military, planted swiftly and surely. They're ready to fly in the breezes that take them to new adventures, new lands, and new friends. Experts say that military children are well-rounded, culturally aware, tolerant, and extremely resilient. Military children have learned from an early age that home is where their hearts are, that a good friend can be found in every corner of the world and that education doesn't only come from school. They live history. They learn that to survive means to adapt, that the door that closes one chapter of their life opens up to a new and exciting adventure full of new friends and new experiences." ~ Author Unknown

According to the pet addendum, all dogs must be on a leash and under the owner’s supervision and control at all times when outside of the home. The Bark Park is a great way to enjoy time with your pup while maintaining the leash laws in our community. When you are out and about with your pet, please remember to pick up after them.
- Barrels are to be 3 feet apart so the trucks can maneuver each barrel individually.
- Barrels need to be placed on the sidewalk away from your mailbox; please do not place your barrel in the street.
- Barrels can be placed at curb side the evening before pick up and cleared from the curb no later than 9pm on pick up day.
- Barrels must be emptied weekly and stored in designated trash container storage area or in the rear yard or garage when no such container storage area is available.
- Bulk items will be picked up weekly on your regular trash day. To help keep our neighborhood clean, please wait to place items on curb until 6pm the night before pick up.
We want to make the move out process as easy as possible. Here are some tips for your up coming PCS:
- Don’t forget to put in a minimum of a 30 day notice. You do not have to have official orders to do this; you can always drop orders at a later date. Just pop by our Community Office and fill out the 30 day notice form. You do not have to wait for exactly 30 days before move out to fill out this form.
- Pick a move out walk through date. This date will be the last day you intend to occupy the home. One of our leasing professionals will walk through the home with you and go over your final statement.
- Attend a Move Out Information Session. These are held every Tuesday at 10:30am and every Thursday at 2:00pm at our Community Office. Advance sign up is preferred.
As the warmer weather is approaching and we start preparing our families for fun activities in the sun, many of us may decide to purchase a pool for the kids to play in their backyard. Please remember if you are purchasing a pool that:
- Only small, well-maintained wading pools are permitted. Wading pools must be 12 inches or less in height and no more than 10-feet wide.
- Wading pools must be positioned in the backyard on grassy areas
- Wading pools must be emptied daily and removed when not in use.
If you have any questions please feel free to reach out to your community office.
We have experienced a mild winter this year and may need to use our AC system early as a result. We recommend that you test out your air conditioner before the weather heats up. If you have any concerns about your system working properly, do not hesitate to place a work order to have it evaluated by calling the work order into the Community Office.
We are continuing to complete our annual preventative home maintenance visits on each of the Seymour Johnson AFB homes. We will ensure that your fire extinguishers, smoke detectors, mechanical system and applications, etc. are in tip-top shape. This work does require entry into your home, so we will be sure to inform you of your preventative maintenance visit in advance. The next group of homes to be visited will be: 216 Chandler – 318 Chandler and 102 Chanute – 306 Chanute during the week of April 17th – April 21st.
We have officially entering mowing season. Please check the calendar for your scheduled mowing days. Please keep in mind that all animal waste needs to be cleaned up for the landscapers. Also, all toys and other items need to be stored properly in the back yard.
Also, Munie will be providing a pre-emergent weed control treatment and a broadleaf application. These treatments kill existing weeds and prevent weeds from germinating. These services will be provided on your normal lawn care day and small flags will be placed in your yard to designate the areas sprayed. When the flags are removed, it’s safe to be on the grass. As always, yards will continue to receive weed treatment around tree rims and in cracks and crevices.
80 to 90 percent of energy used to wash clothes is used to heat the water. To save energy, consider washing your clothes in cold water.
