Corvias Military Living is extending our resident referral program through November. Any resident who refers military families, single service members, military retirees or federal Department of Defense employees to live on post will receive a $500 reward check. Contact a Community Office for more information.
Applications for the 2014 Scholarship and Educational Grant are available after November 1 at www.corviasfoundation.org. The Foundation is committed to supporting military families in the pursuit of higher education and has awarded more than $4.5 million since 2006.
Applications for the Scholarship must be submitted by February 13, 2014, and will be awarded to high school seniors with plans of attending a four-year university in the amount of up to $50,000 each. The Foundation will select 10 children of active-duty service members stationed at Forts Meade, Bragg, Polk, Rucker, Riley, Sill, and Aberdeen Proving Ground to receive the scholarships. New this year, children at Edwards AFB, Eglin AFB, Eielson AFB, Hurlburt Field, McConnell AFB and Seymour Johnson AFB will also be eligible to apply for the scholarships.
Applications for the Educational Grant must be submitted by May 8, 2014. Grants are given in amounts up to $5,000 for the spouse of an active-duty service member at the installations listed above. Applicants may be in any stage of the educational process.
Applications and all necessary paperwork must be submitted by the due date. Awards for both the scholarship and grant are for use beginning in the fall of 2014.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or 401-228-2836 with any questions about eligibility or the application process.
Black Friday, the day after Thanksgiving, is touted as the biggest shopping day of the year and the beginning of the holiday shopping season. This can also be a stressful time, as gift giving can quickly “gobble” up your hard-earned money. Don’t fret – we’ve got some quick and easy tips to ensure that your many purchases don’t burn a hole in your wallet.
- Before you hit the stores, be aware of where your finances currently stand. Only purchase items that you are confident you can afford.
- Create a budget specifically for holiday shopping. Follow your budget as closely as possible, and track your spending. Need help? Contact the Financial Readiness Program at 337-531-1957.
- Ask for military discounts wherever you go. Even if stores do not advertise the discount, ask – you may be pleasantly surprised to hear the answer.
- Shop around. Look at the circulars for sales and discounts. Recognize a good price when you see one.
- Follow your gut instincts – if you think a potential gift is too much for you to spend, look for something else at a lower price.
- Cyber Monday, anyone? Check for last minute deals and steals online on Monday, December 2.
- Some of the best gifts come from the heart and cost nothing at all. Be creative!
- Don’t forget to stop, relax, and enjoy the season with your family and friends. That’s really what it is all about.

Coming Soon: Coffee with a Cop
Coffee with a Cop is an opportunity for the community to meet with Community Police Officer Perkins in a relaxed environment and talk about any subject from crime trends to neighborhood nuisance issues. You can bring your questions, talk with Officer Perkins and Corvias will provide the coffee. Look for a date to be announced soon and mark your calendars for this great event.
Children's Story Time - November 14
Join us at Potomac Place Community Center for a story on "Being Thankful" from 10 to 12 p.m. Children can enjoy a story, craft and snacks! We look forward to seeing you there.
Save the Date for "December in the City"
All residents are invited to our annual holiday celebration event on Saturday, December 7th. The event will be held at Potomac Place Community Center. Look for event details in the December issue of your newsletter!
Corvias Military Living’s goal is to provide the best homes, service and value to residents. Each year Corvias hires a third-party research company to conduct annual satisfaction surveys. These surveys help the company focus on areas that need attention and identify ways to enhance the experience of each resident.
Corvias has selected SatisFacts Research who will contact residents via e-mail to complete a brief online survey. To complete the survey, Corvias must have a personal e-mail address. The online surveys will be sent prior to the end of the year and participation is voluntary. However, we strongly encourage residents to contribute. Without candid and thoughtful feedback, we could not have provided nationally recognized, award-winning customer service for five consecutive years.
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.
Kimbrough Ambulatory Care Center will be offering flu vaccinations to the community November 12-15 at McGill Education Center from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. All Tricare eligible community members ages 3 and older are encouraged to attend this event and should bring their ID card. Call Preventative Medicine Service for more information at (301) 677-8435.
