    The Fort Leavenworth Frontier Heritage Communities quarterly resident survey gives residents the opportunity to share feedback regarding what they like about living at Fort Leavenworth Frontier Heritage Communities and where they feel there is room for improvement. The survey results are completely confidential and anonymous.
    Residents who received an e-mail from Survey Monkey Feb. 23 were among 400 Fort Leavenworth residents who were randomly selected for the quarterly resident survey.
    Residents who complete the survey by March 9 will be entered in a drawing for one of two $75 Visa gift cards. Winning numbers will be posted on the FLFHC Website and Facebook page March 12.
    Contact the Community Management Office at (913) 682-6300 with any questions or concerns.

    Utilities tip
    Did you know that slow cookers are a really inexpensive way to cook? The cooker gently simmers away all day, using little more power than a conventional light bulb. Give it a try.
