    Spring is in the air, lemonade fills your cup, burgers are on the grill and marshmallows are roasting over your fire pit. However, while we are all busy having fun, we still can’t forget about fire safety awareness. Fire safety guidelines, which can be found in the Resident Guidelines and Community Handbook on page 16, are in place to keep you and your family safe.
    Barbecue grills, turkey fryers and fire pits must be at least 15 feet away from structures when in use. Never use grills or fire pits under porches or overhangs. They should not be placed near a structure until completely cooled. Allow ashes from grills and firepits to completely burn out and cool prior to discarding them.
    Resident survey
    Every year, residents of Frontier Heritage Communities are given the opportunity to participate in the Army’s resident satisfaction survey to let the Army know their opinion of housing here, as well as identify what Fort Leavenworth Frontier Heritage Communities is doing well and where improvement is needed. The survey was e-mailed to all residents April 23.
    On May 8 and 22, FLFHC will be giving out prizes, including restaurant gift cards, robotic vacuums and family night out packages, to residents who have answered the survey. The grand prize will be $500 off one month of rent. The sooner residents complete the survey, the more chances they will have to win.
    Survey answers are anonymous, but FLFHC is notified about who has completed the survey.
    Mother’s Day contest
    Two lucky mothers will win $50 salon gift cards for Mother’s Day.
    Submit a photo of mother and child together (no collages) to fhc@tmo.com by 4 p.m. May 3. The photos will be shared on Fort Leavenworth Frontier Heritage Communities’ Facebook page. The two entries with the most “likes” by noon May 10 will be the winners.

    Instead of purchasing bathtub and shower cleansers, make your own. Mix one part vinegar to one part water in an old cleanser spray bottle. Spray the shower and tub area down, let it sit for 30 minutes, and then rinse it off. This method is environmentally friendly and saves plastic.
