Look out for the Army Survey that will be emailed beginning May 5th. This important survey will help ensure the continued success of the RCI program in meeting your needs, and will help guide the Army and Corvias in the development of future improvements to our homes and services. This survey will be administered through a third party, CEL & Associates, Inc. (CEL). The survey results are confidential, so please express your true opinions and thoughts. All Fort Riley residents who complete the survey will be entered to win a weekly drawing of $250 and one grand prize of $1500!
April is Month of the Military Child. During this month, we take time to recognize the sacrifices of our military children, and celebrate their strength, courage and resiliency. 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. You can do this by wearing the color purple on April 15th. 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.
Corvias Military Living would like to salute our military children and show appreciation for all that they do!
Spouses of active-duty service members are eligible to apply for $5,000 Educational Grants for college. Applications are due May 5 and are available at corviasfoundation.org.
Fort Riley post wide yard sales will take place on Saturday, May 14th from 8-12 pm rain or shine. All visitors need to utilize Henry Gate. Food and beverage sales must be in accordance with FR Reg 210-7 Commercial Solicitation on Fort Riley, AR 30-22 Army Food Program, and Field Sanitation AR 71-32. One sign may be used to advertise a yard sale. This sign will be placed in front of the residential unit only. Other signs, indicating direction and location of sale are prohibited.
Kansas can experience extreme weather year round. However, the spring and early summer months pose a higher than usual risk for high winds, heavy rain, lightening, hail and tornadoes. Prepare and plan in advance for severe weather. Stay alert to the potential for rapidly changing weather conditions via local television, local radio or NOAA weather radio. For additional information on emergency preparedness, please visit www.spc.noaa.gov or http://www.ready.gov/natural-disasters.
As the weather gets warmer, more people will begin to use barbecue grills. While many of the safety tips are similar to indoor cooking, there are additional concerns to consider when grilling outdoors.
- Only use outdoors.
- Position the grill 25 feet away from your home and do not use underneath an overhang.
- Keep children and animals away from the grill.
- Periodically remove grease and fat buildup.
- Use the proper starter fluid on charcoal grills.
- Never add starter fluid when coals have already been ignited.
- Allow coals to cool before properly disposing.
- Do not discard coals in the garbage or in the grass.
- When using a propane grill, check the hoses for leaks prior to starting.
- Never store propane cylinders in buildings or garages.
As we move into Spring heating, ventilating, and air-conditioning system (HVAC) filters should be changed out in conjunction with the changing weather.
HVACs recirculate indoor air; filters keep things like dust and debris from entering the system. Keeping an HVAC clean increases the longevity of the system and keeps efficiency high. Corvias Military Living recommends changing filters every 30 days.
Replacement filters are available by request. Contact your local Community Office for details.
Fort Riley will be holding a Kids Fishing Day on Saturday, April 23rd from 12-4 pm at Moon Lake. Loaner rods and reels are provided for those who do not have them. Read more about the details of the event here.
If every American recycled just one-tenth of their newspapers, we could save about 25 million trees each year.
