In 1986, the Department of Defense designated April as Military Child month. This special celebration was established to recognize the important role children play in the Armed Forces community. During this month, we recognize the sacrifices of our military children and celebrate their strength, courage, and resilience. Our youngest heroes serve by adapting to frequent moves, change of schools, parental deployments, and life transitions.
In conjunction with Month of the Military Child, Purple Up! is an initiative calling the community to show support for children in military families. Why purple? Purple is the color that symbolizes all branches of the military, as it is a combination of Army green, Marine red, and Navy, Air Force and Coast Guard blue. To show support to our littlest heroes, Corvias employees will wear purple on Fridays – join us an sport your purple too.
In honor of all the Military Children, we share the poem the Dandelion – The Flower of the Military Child.
The Dandelion – The Flower of the Military Child
"The official flower of the military child is the dandelion. Why? The plant puts down roots almost anywhere, and it's almost impossible to destroy. It's an unpretentious plant, yet good looking. It's a survivor in a broad range of climates. Military children bloom everywhere the winds carry them. They are hardy and upright. Their roots are strong, cultivated deeply in the culture of the military, planted swiftly and surely. They're ready to fly in the breezes that take them to new adventures, new lands, and new friends. Experts say that military children are well-rounded, culturally aware, tolerant, and extremely resilient. Military children have learned from an early age that home is where their hearts are, that a good friend can be found in every corner of the world and that education doesn't only come from school. They live history. They learn that to survive means to adapt, that the door that closes one chapter of their life opens up to a new and exciting adventure full of new friends and new experiences." ~ Author Unknown

Please remember to discard of cigarettes properly. Do not throw cigarette butts in the flower beds or anywhere on the community grounds as it can cause brush fires. We experienced several brush fires last year as a result of improperly discarded cigarettes; we would like to not have a repeat of last year. Thanks for keeping the community safe!
The Randolph Point pool will open on Friday, May 26. Please visit your community’s website for the Corvias community pools’ hours and rules.
All Corvias pools are free of charge for on-post residents to use. Don’t forget your pool pass and military ID! Replacement pool passes are available at your Community Center. Each household is welcome to bring a maximum of four guests.
We have experienced a mild winter this year and may need to use our AC system early as a result. We recommend that you test out your air conditioner before the weather heats up. If you have any concerns about your system working properly, do not hesitate to place a work order to have it evaluated by calling the work order into the Randolph Pointe Community Office.
Please keep in mind the following response times for air conditioning work orders:
- When the outside temperature is below 84, the ticket is considered “urgent” with a 48 hours response time.
- If the outside temperatures exceed 85 degrees, the work order is an “emergency” with a 4 hour response time.
80 to 90 percent of energy used to wash clothes is used to heat the water. To save energy, consider washing your clothes in cold water.
