We hope you will join in the festivities and celebrate the holiday season with your neighbors and the Corvias team as we host our “Tis the Season,” which is an event for all on-post family housing residents.
Bring the family to the Colyer Forsyth Community Center on Friday, Dec. 11, from 4 to 6 p.m. to enjoy a variety of fun-filled holiday activities. The event will feature holiday-inspired treats, photos with Santa (don’t forget to bring your camera) sleigh rides, and holiday carolers.
In the spirit of the Holidays, Corvias will also be raffling off prizes for children of all ages in our Mr. and Mrs. Peppermint Room. There is no charge to attend. Children must be accompanied by an adult.
Corvias completes 10-year initial development plan to improve quality of homes and life at Fort Riley
We have officially completed the construction of our 2,117th home at Fort Riley. Residents CW2 Liebach and his wife Sarah and 2LT Payne and his wife Alyson moved into their new homes in late October. With the delivery of this home, Corvias has accomplished the plan to build 2,117 new homes on post as identified in the Initial Development Period (IDP), which extends through the first 10 years of the 50-year housing partnership between Fort Riley and Corvias. Other quality of life improvements have also been accomplished during this time frame to include the renovation of 1,648 homes, 253 historic renovations, and the building of four community centers with pools and resident amenities. We’re so proud to have made these community improvements during the first decade of our partnership with Fort Riley. While the IDP will officially come to a close next year, Corvias is already working with the Army to identify plans for the next phase of partnership. Together, we will continue to build, renovate and improve the quality of life for residents over the next 40 years.

For many, the holiday season is the most wonderful time of the year. However, the holidays can also be a stressful time of year. The pressure of juggling gift buying, holiday parties, preparing the perfect meal, traveling or entertaining houseguests can be difficult to manage. Don't let the demands of the season hinder your holiday cheer. Here are some tips to help prevent holiday stress:
- Plan ahead. Make a plan and schedule days for cooking, baking, shopping, preparing your home, and other events or activities. You can use helpful apps on your Smartphone for creating to-do lists, shopping lists, or locating that much-sought-after gift.
- Budget. Set a budget and stick to it. Decide in advance how much you can afford to spend. Remember to budget not only for gifts, but also for the additional food you will buy for your holiday meal and baking. This will help reduce financial stress after the holidays.
- Take care of yourself. Take time to do something relaxing. Take a long hot bath, get a massage, or listen to your favorite music. Make sure to get enough sleep. Exercise. Eat healthy.
- Give back. The holiday season is the perfect time to give back to the community. Contact local agencies and organizations for volunteer opportunities.
- Get support. If the holiday season is a difficult time for you and/or you have feelings of loneliness or sadness, reach out for help. Army Community Service (ACS) and the Chaplains offer services, counseling, and support not only during the holiday season but the whole year.
- Remember to focus on what is most important this holiday season and that everything does not need to be perfect. Managing stress will help you enjoy the upcoming holidays and remember the real meaning of the season
MFLC will be holding sessions in each Community Center. The topic this month is Stress During the Holidays: Maintaining Balance and Stress Resilience. Please see the schedule below for sessions near you!
- Ellis Heights- Monday, December 14th at 10 a.m.
- McClellan- Monday, December 14th at 2 p.m.
- Colyer Forsyth- Thursday, December 10th at 10 a.m.
- Warner Peterson- Thursday, December 10th at 2 p.m.
Remember to keep the heat on! The weather may be nice when you leave, but can quickly change while you are gone. Please leave your thermostat set between 60 and 65 degrees to prevent pipes from freezing. Also, we encourage you to consider registering your home for House Watch with your Community Office. When you register your home, the Community team will make a routine check of the property and can take appropriate actions as needed.
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.
