Holiday Office Hours
Our office will be closed on Monday, July 4th. We hope that you all enjoy the holiday and we will be operating on normal business hours for the rest of that week!
July 4th / Independence Day
The Declaration of Independence
We celebrate American Independence Day on the Fourth of July every year. We think of July 4, 1776, as a day that represents the Declaration of Independence and the birth of the United States of America as an independent nation.
But July 4, 1776 wasn't the day that the Continental Congress decided to declare independence (they did that on July 2, 1776).
It wasn’t the day we started the American Revolution either (that had happened back in April 1775).
And it wasn't the day Thomas Jefferson wrote the first draft of the Declaration of Independence (that was in June 1776). Or the date on which the Declaration was delivered to
Great Britain (that didn't happen until November 1776). Or the date it was signed (that was August 2, 1776).
Air Filter Changes
The Service Team will be changing air filters in the buildings listed below during the month of July. Please make a note for yourselves if your building is on the list below. We ask that you kennel or secure all pets and please disarm alarm systems for that day.

Abberly Place Pool Party!
Now that summer is here, our residents are using our amenities more and more which is awesome! If you have guest visiting and you want to take them to the pool or resident activity center, please keep in mind that you are only allowed 2 guests per apartment. This rule is in place to avoid overcrowding these areas. We have recently had several people ask if they can have parties in these areas and unfortunately with the 2 guest limit, you would not be able to have a party. We do realize that several of our residents are friends and hang out so if you wanted to have a gathering in the Resident Activity Center or pool area, that would be perfectly fine because you all live here and you would still be able to bring guest. If you have any questions or concerns about this, please feel free to contact our office and we would be more then happy to go over the rules!
Patio and Balcony Areas
We wanted to send out a friendly reminder about your patio and balcony areas. We want these areas to stay neat and tidy so that it looks neat and presentable to everyone in the community. We want you to have patio furniture, flowers (with water protectors under them), and decorative items on your patio/balcony so that it will feel homey to you. We do not want trash, inside furniture (this looks tacky) holiday lights (when it is not the holiday season), recreational items such as bikes and kayaks, flags (this could be offensive to someone) bird feeders (humming bird feeders are ok), towels hanging to dry (this is an eyesore to neighbors and does not look good when we are showing the community to prospects) and any other items that may be considered to be an eyesore. Please contact our office if you have any questions or concerns about this. Thank you!

Popsicles by the Pool
During the month of July, we will be passing out popsicles by the pool. This will help cool you off on a hot summer day and….they are yummy!
Here is a fun summer fact for you:
Did you know that Popsicles, a popular summer treat, was accidentally invented by an 11-year-old boy in San Francisco in 1905. He left a glass of soda sitting outside and by the next morning the soda had frozen. He began selling them at an amusement park in New Jersey. In the U.S., cherry is the number 1 flavor.
