  • Fort Leavenworth Frontier Heritage Communities
    Fort Leavenworth Frontier Heritage Communities would like to thank current residents for being a part of the wonderful community here at Fort Leavenworth, “The Best Hometown in the Army.”
    It is with the residents in mind that FLFHC plans various activities and events for service members and their families throughout the year through the Community Connections program. The FLFHC Community Center is the epicenter for activities designed to foster fun, encouragement and a way to stay connected with old friends while making new ones.
    One of the amenities FLFHC offers residents is a state-of-the-art fitness center. If you’ve been thinking about increasing your physical activity, but find the gym to be an intimidating place, come and give it a try. With the different equipment options to choose from, residents can find a fitness program that works for them. While parents are getting healthy, their children can play in the playroom made just for them, and it is strategically placed so they will stay within sight.
    For accessing the fitness center after office hours, one key access card is available per family with a service member’s signature. The hours for resident access are 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. Sunday through Thursday, and 6 a.m. to 11 p.m. Friday and Saturday. Stop by the office at 220 Hancock Ave. for more information and to get an access card.
    Birthday drawing
    Have a child with a birthday in August? 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 Aug. 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 Aug. 21. Contest winners will receive a prize and have their artwork published in the FLFHC newsletter.
    Yard of the Month
    FLFHC representatives will patrol villages each month through October in search of three yards that will be named “Yard of the Month” during the third week of each month. Winners will receive a $25 gift card and a Yard of the Month certificate as well as recognition in the FLFHC newsletter and on Facebook. Winners are chosen based on the use of color, ornaments and plants in their front yard and porch.
    Village of the Month
    Housing village mayors now have the opportunity to leave their mark and help promote their village 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.
    Page 2 of 2 - Utilities tip
    One of the best energy saving tips may be one of the simplest to do — replace the furnace filter monthly. This simple chore will dramatically reduce the amount of dust and particles in the air as well as improve the efficiency of the unit.
    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.
