  • Fort Leavenworth Frontier Heritage Communities
    With summer making its grand entrance, and the sun beating down on Fort Leavenworth, perhaps it is time to look outside and consider how just a few minutes can improve the appearance of your lawn.
    With a minimal investment of time, residents can take advantage of one of the utility services included for everyone residing on Fort Leavenworth — water. Watering lawns helps the on-post villages look beautiful.
    Water lawns in the morning. This gives the water time to soak into the ground. When lawns are watered during the day, the heat can cause the water to evaporate, leaving the lawn just as dry as it was before watering.
    Village of the Month
    Housing village mayors now have the opportunity to leave their mark and help promote their villages to greatness.
    One of those ways is by encouraging residents to keep lawns and common areas clean and orderly. Photos of a village’s progress can be e-mailed to fhc@tmo.com and shared on FLFHC’s Facebook page. The village with the most improvement each month will have the opportunity to win $50 cash to use toward village activities in addition to the $200 village funds already provided each year. There is no limit to how many times a village can win.
    Ice cream social
    Residents are invited to join FLFHC from 1-2:30 p.m. June 21 at the Community Center, 220 Hancock Ave., for a cool treat on the patio while supplies last. Children under 14 years old must be accompanied by an adult 18 or older.
    Birthday drawing
    Have a child with a birthday in June? Come by the Fort Leavenworth Frontier Heritage Communities office at 220 Hancock Ave. to enter him or her into the monthly birthday drawing. All submissions must be received in the FLFHC office by June 21.
    Coloring contest
    Children’s coloring contest sheets are available online at www.ftleavenworthfamilyhousing.com and at the FLFHC office at 220 Hancock Ave. Entries must be received by June 21.
    Utilities tip
    Turn down the thermostat two degrees in the winter and turn it up two degrees in the summer. Doing this can reduce the amount of carbon dioxide generated by 2,000 pounds annually. Use reflective curtains to regulate the sunlight coming into the home to aid in heating and cooling.
    Watch for more announcements on Facebook, followed by a One-Call Now e-mail message with event details, and don’t forget to follow FLFHC on Twitter. Visit the FLFHC website at www.ftleavenworthfamilyhousing.com for downloadable forms and other useful information.
