Catch A Flick this Weekend at the Dahlgren Movie Theater

Ready?

Ready?

It has been one of America’s favorite pastimes for decades, and for good reason! You maybe thinking I’m referring to baseball and while that’s a great guess, I’m actually talking about the silver screen. From silent films to stop motion animated flicks to 3D, we as Americans spend billions of dollars at the movies annually.

Movies are magic and what can I say, we love us some magic. If you’re ever in need of a good movie, hop on Rotten Tomatoes, see what’s getting good ratings, and head on over to Dahlgren Movie Theater–NSF Dahlgren. Located at 6238 Welsh Rd, Bldg. 117, the theater shows movies year-round on Friday and Saturday evenings (7:00 p.m.).

The NSF Dahlgren Theater features recent movie releases and offers a concession stand with food and beverages. Prices are great compared to the rest of the nation:

  • $5 Civilian
  • $4 Active Duty, Retired & Reserve Mil E7 and above and their family members with ID
  • $2.50 E1-E6 & below and their family members with ID,
  • $2 Child (6-11),
  • Free – Child (5 and Under).

For updated movie listings, be sure to call  the movie line anytime at (540) 653-7336.

National Window Safety Awareness Week April 7th – 13th

admin-ajax

Spring is here, and with it comes the almost irresistible desire for young kids to peer out of windows to see and smell what the season has to offer. Who can blame them, right? But with that desire comes the risk of window accidents, and they happen more often than you imagine and often with grim results.

According to the Senior Director of Safe Communities America for the National Safety Council, Donna Stein-Harris, “Tragic window falls can happen in just seconds. When it comes to window safety, there is no substitute for the importance of adult supervision of children to help keep them safe.”

National Window Safety Week runs from April 7th – 13th and Lincoln Military Housing will be participating in the promotion of this week through, increased communication and awareness of child window safety throughout the community.  In addition to increased communication and awareness during this very important week we also have added warning stickers to every second story window in our homes. These stickers are there to help remind you and your family of the dangers of windows. Take some time this week to explain to your children what these stickers are for and stop by  The National Safety Council’s website. They have some great tips that you can use to teach your family about window safety!

In fact, here are a few tips you can implement immediately around your home:

  • Provide extra supervision to children when near windows, balconies or patio doors
  • When opening windows for ventilation, only open ones that children cannot access
  • Insect screens are designed to keep bugs out, not to keep children in–do not rely on them to prevent falls
  • Be sure to practice your family’s emergency escape plan at least twice a year, and keep all exits clear of hazards like cords or toys
  • If there are children around, make sure to keep all reachable windows closed and locked
  • Make sure nothing is blocking or preventing a window from being opened in the case of an emergency

We hope these help, and don’t forget to visit your housing office for more information and to get a fun filled Window Safety Coloring Book for the kids!

Army vs. Navy Blood Drive–A Success!

ASBP

Everyone knows about the storied rivalry of Army versus Navy football (Navy having one the last, and overall leader), but did you know that the rivalry goes way beyond just sport? And, apparently, so does the Naval domination; they won the 2012 Army vs. Navy Blood Drive Challenge, as well!

Thanks to all our Army vs. Navy Blood Drive Challenge donors who contributed to the win! Start this New Year out right at our next ASBP Blood Drive on February 21, from 10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. at the Bldg. 1470 Conference Room. All blood collected benefits military members and their families at home, overseas, in harm’s way and recovering from injuries.

Be sure to check out the time slots available, and schedule your donations for a time good for you. The earlier you sign up the more options you have. If you need more information on anything blood donation related, be sure to visit the Armed Services Blood Program, so you can give our troops the greatest gift of all–the gift of life. Give blood!

‘Just Dance’ at the Valentine’s Day Dance!

Technology has changed the world in more ways than one! Take our scheduled Valentine’s Day Dance for instance, it’s most definitely going to be different than any other dance you’ve ever attended. You may be used to a DJ playing the latest hits while you boogie on the dance floor, but not this party!

Lincoln Military Housing is partnering with the YAC to have a dance you won’t want to miss. On Friday, February 8, from 6:00 – 8:00 p.m. in the Community House, Just Dance for the Wii will be played and refreshments will be served. Trust me when I say, it’s going to be a good niiiiight!

We hope you can make it, and if you plan to, be sure to RSVP by Friday, February 1. You have about a month to prepare and get your moves ready–you don’t want to be out danced by me, do you?

Of Inspections and Pets…

Home Inspections Are Nearing:

Your home is due for its semi-annual preventative maintenance inspection! We will contact you via email at least 48 hours prior to your scheduled inspection date and will need to have access to your home for approximately one half hour to complete the inspection.

We ask that you please have all pets secured if you will not be home. The inspection includes replacing air filters if needed, checking smoke detectors and replacing batteries if needed, and ensuring no leaks are present. If you do not wish to have a technician in your home for this inspection while you are not home, please give our office a call at 540-663-2190 and we will schedule the inspection at your convenience Monday through Friday, 9:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m.

Attention Pet Owners:

Our office has received several complaints regarding residents who do not pick up after their pets. Per your lease agreement, you must clean up after your pet immediately. Pet waste disposal stations are located throughout the neighborhood for your convenience. Should you have a suggestion for an additional pet station location, please let us know.

And as a reminder, you must have authorization from LMH prior to bringing a pet into your home. Pets are to be leashed, supervised and under your control at all times. Leaving pets unattended in your yard is prohibited.

Please note failure to abide by the pet policy could result in revocation of your pet privileges or termination of your lease. Report all violations with the offender’s address to our office at 540-663-2190 or directly to me at ksickel@lpsi.com. We appreciate everyone’s cooperation as we work to resolve this ongoing problem.
