Safety Tips for the Winter Season

The seasons fly by so quickly it is hard to keep up with the necessary ways to keep safe under the uncertain conditions that comes with winter.  Here are some things to remember in preparing for the cold and rain. For home safety, it is a good practice to repair handrails both inside your home and outside around your porches. Having a handrail on both sides of a stairway and all the way to the end of the stairs is best, rather than on just one side. Make sure your home is well lit inside and outside to help you and your guests avoid falling. Have a multipurpose fire extinguisher in a handy and convenient location in both the kitchen and the garage, practice how to use it, and check to see if it is working once a year. Keep dry and warm by wearing hats, gloves and non-skid shoes or boots. To avoid injuries, ask for help and don’t take unnecessary risks. Can your street address be seen from the street at night? Check to see if your address is well lit In the event emergency personnel need to find your home at night. Gas stoves, lanterns, and fireplaces […]

A Halloween Story Written by our Residents

Once Upon  A Halloween Night Written by the Residents at Country Meadows Village – Courtside On a cold Halloween night, there was a man that had one leg, 4 eyes, and no nose! The man chose to stay in his home and keep away from others most nights. He decided to slip out that night, hoping to make a friend. While walking through town, he met a group of women. When the women saw him, they shrieked in fear and reached for their pepper spray! The man calmly said “I come in peace, in search of a friend.” One of the women stepped out from the group to take a closer look. What she saw was a scary, disfigured, and unfamiliar face on the outside. It was then she reminded herself he could have a kind, friendly heart on the inside.  “Why don’t you join us for some hot cocoa?” The woman asked. Her friends were appalled!
