As the leaves start falling and the crisp air blows it quickly reminds us that the beginning of a new season is upon us. With that season comes one of the most loved holidays, Thanksgiving. As we plan for travels to visit family and friends or what kind of pie will be on the dinner table this year, take a moment to remember what this holiday is about. Thanksgiving has long been celebrated as “a day of giving thanks for the blessing of the harvest and the preceding year.” Sure Thanksgiving also symbolizes delicious food, long weekends and football but there is much more to it than that. Each year we take the time to give thanks for everything we are grateful for, whether it’s a person in your life, your job, your health or any number of things. Starting this year, think about how you can be more giving to others. It can be as simple as paying it forward in the drive-thru line or joining your fellow neighbors on community clean-up day. After all, not only does giving help others, it is proven that people who give are happier themselves!
The following are some tips on how you can be a more giving person:
- Volunteer your time for a charity in the area
- Pay it forward
- Join your neighbors on community clean-up day
- Fund a cause you’re passionate about
- Say thank you more often
- Donate unneeded items
- Help a neighbor in need (i.e when you see a neighbor moving in, offer to help.)
- Hold the door for the person behind you
- Be a better listener
- Read “The Giving Tree” by Shel Silverstein
Holiday packages will start arriving soon. Just a reminder that packages are accepted and held at the Randolph Pointe community center as a courtesy. If you are expecting a package, please make sure that you are checking your tracking information or simply contact the office to see if your package has arrived as staff are unable to call residents and let them know that a package has arrived. Oversized packages (i.e. furniture, tires) as well as perishable items should be picked up IMMEDIATELY because we do not have the appropriate area to store them in. If you prefer that the office not accept a package on your behalf, please let them know.
BFPE International Fire, Safety and Security and the maintenance team will be conducting maintenance of the fire alarm system November 7-8th. The maintenance team will need access into each apartment and storage unit. BFPE will be accompanied by the Randolph Pointe Maintenance Supervisor.
When grease goes down the drain, it causes sewage to back up. Over time kitchen grease, fats and oil that are poured down the drain or garbage disposal will enter the sewer system and clog pipes as the grease solidifies. These pipe blockages can send waste water backwards and lead to plumbing, sewer backups. To help prevent blockages and to keep your pipes working at their best please remember to:
- Use an old coffee can or jar as a grease collector.
- Pour greasy or oily food waste into the container, NOT down the disposal.
- Freeze or cool animal fats before disposal in trash.
- Mix liquid vegetable fats with an absorbent material such as kitty litter or coffee grounds in a sealable container before disposing in trash.
If you have any questions please do not hesitate to reach out to your community center for additional guidance or assistance.
Cooking for the holidays? If you have not used your oven in a while, make sure to test it out to make sure everything is working well in preparation of holiday cooking. If you are experiencing any problems contact the work order hotline at 1-866-206-1365 to place a work order.
How can you save energy when cooking your Thanksgiving dinner? Don’t open the oven door while you’re cooking! Instead, turn on the oven light and check on your food through the oven window.
