Welcome home! Fall is quickly approaching. As summer comes to a close it means two things are getting ready to start: school and football.
It is that time of year when students head back to school. Although this does not directly affect most of you, it is still something you should be aware of. There will be an increase in traffic with buses and parents driving their kids to school, so you may need to leave for work a few minutes earlier in the mornings.
Also look out for bikers and pedestrians. Slow down and be especially alert in residential areas and school zones. Take extra time to look for kids at intersections, on medians and on curbs. Watch for children on and near the road in the morning and after school hours. Reduce any distractions inside your car so you can concentrate on the road and your surroundings.
Students are heading back to school at all levels, including college, and this means football season is here.
The Clubhouse at Reece Crossings offers a great place to catch your Saturday or Sunday games (or Monday, Thursday and other game days.) We have the 90-inch flat-screen as well as other TVs throughout the building so you don’t miss a thing. Don’t forget, you can prep all your game-day snacks in the clubhouse kitchen.
Before the summer wrapped up I’m glad we were able to host the Better Opportunities for Single Service Members Pool Party and Barbecue Aug. 23. If you had fun you should join B.O.S.S. at their next event Sept. 21 at the Fort Meade Bowling Alley.
If you notice any maintenance issues or problems as the weather starts to change, 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
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.
Join the Fort Meade Better Opportunities for Single Service Members for a free night of bowling Sept. 21 from 4 to 7 p.m. at The Lanes – Fort Meade. Bowling Night includes free bowling, shoes, food and sodas. This is open to all enlisted single service members. Check out the B.O.S.S. Facebook page for more info.
Do you sometimes feel that no matter how many loads of laundry you do, more piles of clothes keep appearing even before you’re finished? Try this system to make laundry more efficient and less time-consuming.
- If you wash fewer than five loads per week, select one day to finish the entire process: sorting, laundering, folding, ironing, and storing.
- If you have several loads, try a daily system, strictly adhering to a morning or evening routine and doing one or two loads per day.
- Keep all products you will need close at hand.
- Set aside space for a “repair center” for clothes that need new buttons, alterations, or mending. Then make all the fixes in one sitting.
- Keep a small dish nearby to collect coins, buttons, and other items found in pockets.
- Go to the dry cleaner on the same day each week to cut down on multiple trips.
- Find a comfortable area to fold clothes.
In order to help everyone max their next PT test Reece Crossings is a smoke‐free community. For the consideration of your neighbors, the smoking of tobacco products in enclosed buildings and facilities is prohibited. This includes all interior common areas, individual bedrooms and apartments, covered walkways, balconies, patios, and outdoor areas where smoke may drift into buildings.
Smoking is permitted in outdoor areas, but only in areas at least 15 feet away from doorways, open windows, covered walkways, and ventilation systems. Please remember to properly dispose of your butts.
The Corvias Military Living annual resident satisfaction survey will begin in October and will continue into November. Surveys are conducted by SatisFacts, an independent property management research firm.
SatisFacts will contact residents by email to complete a brief online survey. While participation is voluntary, your feedback is appreciated so we can work to improve your experience. Please contact your Community Office for more information.
How can you save energy and keep your clothes wrinkle-free? Iron fabrics that require a cooler iron first and work up to those requiring higher heat. An iron heats faster than it cools, so it’s quicker to go from low to high than the reverse. You’ll use less energy.
