Welcome home! August is the dog days of summer. But don’t worry about the heat, you can come down to the pool and relax. Just don’t forget to put on some sunscreen.
The Clubhouse at Reece Crossings offers a few other ways to beat the heat too. You can hit the fitness rooms for a workout in the air conditioning or play some games in the cool clubroom.
One great feature about Reece Crossings is its location. You are connected and close to work, shopping and the Fort Meade community. The post National Night Out will be right across the street Aug. 5. This is the 31 year for this event at Fort Meade. Also you can take in a concert by the U.S. Army Field Band at Constitution Park, just off the parade field. Check the upcoming events below for dates.
I hope all of you are getting settled in comfortably. If you have any maintenance issues or problems with your home please call us at 410-672-4076 and we will get someone out to take a look. Or you can stop by the Community Office, we would love to see you.
Thank you for choosing to live with us, but more importantly thank you for your service,
Sacha Delgado Snyder
Reece Crossings Manager
Kick your boots off and relax at the pool after a long week. On Friday, August 1st, we’ll be serving burgers and hot dogs from 4 to 7 p.m. Bring a friend and join us Friday evening.
Did you know that you can receive a $150 reward check for referring your single E1 to E5 friends to live at Reece Crossings – the Army’s first on-post apartment community for unaccompanied junior enlisted service members. Contact your Community Office for more information and be sure to have them give us your name when they visit the Leasing center so we know where to send the money.
National Night Out, a community police and safety event, is scheduled for Aug. 5 from 6 to 9 p.m. at McGlachlin Parade Field. Corvias Military Living is partnering with the Directorate of Emergency Services to provide residents with demonstrations and activities.
This free event features safety demonstrations and displays from local and state law enforcement offices. Don’t miss the K-9 and Force Protection event. Residents can also cool off with light refreshments and cold drinks.
Taking simple steps can help you be a crime fighter. Lock your vehicle, close and lock garages and sheds and secure easy to carry items. Commonly stolen items include bikes, scooters and toys. Theft is a common crime of opportunity, by securing property you are eliminating the opportunity.
The Fort Meade Police Department has increased patrols in housing. You can report suspicious activity by calling 301-677-6540, or 301-677-6622 for non-emergencies, or you can dial 911 for emergencies.
High Speed Internet and more than 100 cable television channels are provided for your enjoyment. The service provider for Reece Crossings is Comcast Xfinity. If you would like to add additional channels or premium services, please contact your Comcast representative at 1-855-638-2855.
Solid waste and household trash should be bagged and placed inside the community dumpsters located throughout the community. Please do not use the construction dumpsters for disposing of your household trash. When residential trash is disposed of in construction dumpsters the dumpster must be reclassified.
Large and small cardboard moving boxes should be broken down and placed next to the household trash dumpster. Recycling containers will be located at the same sites as the household trash dumpsters. Trash and recycling will be picked up weekly.
The end of summer frequently means one last barbecue—your final chance to enjoy warm weather before school starts for kids and work ramps up again for everyone else. You don’t want to spoil the fun with an accident at the grill, though. Keep these important safety tips in mind for a good time:
- Read the instructions. Whether you’re using a gas grill or one that burns charcoal, take some time to read the owner’s manual before starting your fire. Be sure you’re following the manufacturer’s safety guidelines.
- Always grill outdoors. This may seem elementary, but not everyone understands the need for proper ventilation and basic fire precautions. Your garage, or a tent, isn’t a safe location for a grill.
- Keep the grill stable. Check the surface you’re placing your grill on. You don’t want it to tip over unexpectedly. Also, take care to place it well away from the flow of people and pets, and especially children.
- Clean the grill first. Scrape off any grease or fat that can make a fire difficult to control.
- Stay close by. Never leave your grill alone while you’re talking, getting food, or enjoying yourself.
- Dispose of coals safely. Once you’re finished, douse the hot coals thoroughly, cover the grill, and wait at least 24 hours before emptying it. Never store coals in paper, wood, or plastic containers.
