With the cancellation of Landings HolidayFest, the ticket buy-back deadline has been extended to Friday, December 14. Tickets can be brought to The Landings Association’s Administrative Building during normal business hours (Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.) and exchanged for their cash value. Only 2018 (yellow) tickets are eligible for exchange.
There still are cards on the Angel Tree at The Landings Company! Drop by our Welcome Center (located just beyond the North Gate) and select an Angel from our tree and help fulfill a child’s Christmas wish.
Every Angel represents a child of a local military family and includes their “oh so hoped for” Christmas wish. Our local military families are no strangers to sacrifice, and this is our way of giving back to them. Gifts are due back by December 12 and will be delivered to Hunter Army Airfield just in time for Santa to surprise the children for the holidays.
According to the Federal Trade Commission, credit card fraud is on the rise in the United States. Statistics show that whether you live in a large city or a quaint town, you are at risk of this crime happening to you at least once in your lifetime.
But the good news is that you don’t have to resign yourself to being a victim and sit back and do nothing. Although you can’t always prevent this crime from happening, there are things you can do to make it more difficult for thieves to get your credit cards and account numbers.
As part of its ongoing educational outreach, a group of volunteers from the Skidaway Chapter of the Coastal Conservation Association (CCA) recently greeted 16 teens from Bethesda Academy for an afternoon of fishing at the Kids’ Fishing Lagoon.
Nothing is more gratifying than being able to help children learn, and Local Outreach Volunteer Educators (L.O.V.E.) is a perfect way for you to extend a helping hand to a child in need of some one-on-one contact with a caring adult.
At this writing, we are working to finalize the proposed 2019 Budget for review and approval by The Landings Association’s Finance Committee and Board of Directors. As is done every year, the entire document will be posted on our website (www.landings.org/resources under Governing Documents) after it is adopted by the Board in December. The Budget is designed as a resource for residents to learn about the services, revenues, and expenditures of your Association.
