Fort Leavenworth Frontier Heritage Communities

As people prepare to transition from Fort Leavenworth in the coming months, residents are asked to e-mail their intent to depart to the Fort Leavenworth Frontier Heritage Communities Community Management Office at fhc@tmo.com. The FLFHC team will reply with a “Notice of Intent to Vacate” form. Once this form is completed and e-mailed back, the FLFHC team will then be able to schedule a pre-moveout inspection (if not yet completed) and also a final move-out inspection.

Service members need to provide a copy of their military orders to begin the move-out process. Initiating a move-out notice in a timely manner will allow a resident to secure an inspection time that best meets the needs of his or her family prime spots fill up quickly.

Those who are retiring and would like to stay, or are deploying or preparing an unaccompanied tour and want his or her family to stay at Fort Leavenworth should contact the FLFHC office to learn about what benefits or options might be available.

As always, if residents have any questions, they should call the Community Management Office at (913) 682-6300.

Cinco de Mayo recipes

FLFHC residents are asked to share their best Cinco de Mayo recipes by e-mailing a copy to fhc@tmo.com and FLFHC will post it on the Facebook page. Each recipe shared will be entered in a random drawing to win a gift card. Entries must be received by today and the drawing will be made May 1.

Mission donations

FLFHC residents donated more than 11,500 pounds of donations to the City Union Mission Christian Life Center in April.

The second Saturday of each month, items to be donated to the mission should be placed curbside by 10 a.m. For each donation, the mission will give a voucher for tax credit that can be written off income taxes. The next pick up is May 9.

The mission accepts clothing, furniture and other household items but not appliances, mattresses, cribs or carseats. Separate any bulk trash from donations and place clothing and shoes inside plastic bags marked for mission donation. Anything left on the curb Monday will be collected as bulk trash and not a donation.

Scholarship extension

In light of COVID-19, The Michaels Organization Educational Foundation has extended the deadline for this year’s resident scholarship applications to May 13.

The Michaels Educational Foundation, a non-profit affiliate of The Michaels Organization, awards scholarship grants to residents of Michaels Organization properties who are pursuing some form of higher education in a college, a trade or professional school, or an institute. Last year, 24 FLFHC residents received scholarship grants.

The scholarships are available to the family members of active-duty service members residing in housing communities owned or managed by the companies of The Michaels Organization, which includes FLFHC.

For more information or to download a copy of the application, visit https://www.michaelsscholars.com/. Transcripts are required.

Mail the application form, references, essay and grade transcripts to Dr. Bruce W. Johnson, The Michaels Educational Foundation, P.O. Box 90708, Camden, NJ 08101.

Call Meghan Fowler at (913) 682-6300 for more information.

Mowing schedule

Barren Outdoor Solutions is performing weekly yard maintenance on the following schedule:

Monday — Osage, Normandy, Nez Perce, Kansa and Cheyenne villages

Tuesday — Oregon, Ottawa, Santa Fe and Iowa villages

Wednesday — Shawnee, Pawnee, Kickapoo and Pottawatomie villages

Thursday — Infantry Barracks, Main Post, Riverside and Wint Avenue

Friday — Make-up day

Be sure to put away all toys, garden hoses, patio furniture and any other belongings before the scheduled mowing day. FLFHC will not be responsible for damages or failure to mow areas where items are left out. Residents are responsible for mowing within their fenced areas.

In case of inclement weather, mowing will be completed the following day.

Utilities tip

Take clothes out of the dryer and fold or hang them up while they are still warm to prevent wrinkling. Irons are a big energy consumer — this will shorten time spent ironing and help with energy conservation.

Watch for more community event 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.
