Fort Riley and the surrounding communities have tons of outdoor recreation sites so it's no surprise that RVs, boats and trailers are popular on post. If you own any of these recreational vehicles, please comply with post policy for storage: Memorial Day through Labor Day you may park these types of vehicles in your driveway. Now that Labor Day has passed, we ask that these items now be stored inside the garage with the door closed. They may not be permanently parked, left overnight, stored on the streets, stored outside a garage or under a carport, in driveways, yards or parking lots in any housing area. If you are unable to store these items inside your garage, you must now find alternative storage options. Please contact your community office if you have any questions regarding this policy.
Trick or Treat hours on post will be from 6-8pm on Tuesday, October 31. While you and your kids are out enjoying the festivities please remember these safety tips to keep all of our little ghosts, super heroes, and princesses safe:
- Only Trick or Treat at homes that have their front porch light on (homes without their lights out are not participating)
- Avoid trick-or-treating alone! Walk in groups or with a trusted adult.
- Fasten reflective tape to costumes or bags or hold a flashlight to help drivers see you.
- Examine all candy for tampering before eating them.
- Don’t eat homemade items from strangers.
- Look both ways before crossing the street! Use the sidewalks!
- Never enter homes and never accept rides from strangers!
Several programs within the community are also offering alternatives to trick or treating on Halloween such as trunk or treats or carnivals.
The Foundation has awarded over $7 million to military families since 2006
East Greenwich, R.I. (September 19, 2017) – Corvias Foundation, a private, charitable foundation and the charitable arm of Corvias, has been committed to supporting military families in the pursuit of higher education since 2006. Helping military spouses overcome economic hurdles by allowing them to equip themselves with the tools and accreditation to join the workforce has always been a key focus of the organization. This year, Corvias Foundation has awarded scholarships totaling $100,000, each up to $5,000, to spouses of active-duty service members across the country.
“With active duty military families moving 2.4 times as often as civilians, or about every two to three years, we’re acutely aware of the barriers facing military spouses in their pursuit for employment opportunities,” said Maria Montalvo, Foundation Executive Director. “We are humbled by the perseverance and drive exhibited by every single one of these spouses and it’s a tremendous honor for all of us to play a role in their educational and professional journey.”
While each spouse comes from a unique background and they all have their own individual goals, there is a strong common thread of aspiring to help those who need a champion. For example, several of the recipients will further their studies to pursue work that helps and supports military families, a perfect encapsulation of the Foundation’s ripple-effect of giving. Among this year’s scholarship recipients are aspiring psychologists, social workers, nurses, physical therapists, and teachers.
Since 2006, Corvias Foundation has awarded more than $7 million through 385 scholarships to military spouses and children at 13 different Army and Air Force installations. Following are our 2017 scholarship recipients:
