Abberly Idol Night
Think you can sing? Want to show us what you’ve got? Come to the Resident Activity Center at 6:00 pm, on 5/22/13 for pizza and beverages and get ready to go before our judges to see who will win the title of “Abberly Idol” , our very own version of American Idol. Abberly Idol had been a huge success in past years so we thought we would bring it back.
We will have a DJ with a karaoke machine and books full of songs to choose from. No pressure, just lots of fun and laughs.
For details and to sign up, please call our office at 919-772-6545 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We need several contestants to make this a success, so please don’t be shy!
The winner will receive a $200 credit toward June’s rent and the runner up will get a $100 credit toward June’s rent. So, as Randy would say, “Who’s in it to win it?”
Our office will be closed on May 27th in recognition of Memorial Day. We hope you all have a good holiday!
Rent vs. Buying
The American dream is shifting from “for sale” to a “for rent” mindset as multi-family living increases in popularity due to choice and NOT economic necessity. The incentives are Unlimited! Here are just a few:
Short Term commitment - leases are typically 9-15 months and you have the option to leave before the expiration date in exchange for a fee or re-renting the apartment.
Flexibility –your needs or job can change. You are able to relocate much more quickly!
Social Activities are planned for you and your family!
Amenities improve your quality of life and save unnecessary membership fees elsewhere (pools, fitness facility, business center, etc. )

The Service Team will be changing air filters in the following buildings during the month of May; Please make a note for yourselves if your building is on the list above. We ask that you kennel or secure all pets and please disarm alarm systems for that day.

Every year on the last Monday in May, United States citizens observe Memorial Day, a holiday which honors all those who have died in military service to our country. Originally called Decoration Day, Memorial Day began as a way to commemorate soldiers who died in the Civil War in service to the Union Army.
It became Memorial Day after the First World War, and it now honors all men and women who have died in military service, in all branches of the U.S. military. This federal holiday has a rich, fascinating history, and it holds enormous significance in the lives of so many Americans. This is the perfect day to say Thank You to all of those brave soldiers who serve our country.
We want to wish all of our Abberly Place Moms a very Happy Mother’s Day!

Pick Up Behind Your Dog!
We have noticed a HUGE problem with residents NOT picking up behind their dogs.
It has gotten so bad that others cannot even walk through the grass to pick up their dog's poop, without stepping in someone else's.
This problem exists throughout the property on Phase 1 and Phase 2 and is all over the place.
The worst part of this is that we have doggie poop stands in several areas and people are allowing their dog to go beside the stand and still not picking it up.
Not only is this unsightly and unsanitary, it is also plain lazy, ridiculous, irresponsible and against the law.
We are encouraging all residents to watch carefully and let us know if you see anyone not picking up behind their dogs. TAKE A PICTURE OF THE GUILTY PERSON AND OR DOG AND SEND IT TO US.
Or, feel free to call and leave a message or drop us an anonymous note in the drop box, with a description of the person and/or dog and what building they walk into.
Another issue that has been brought to our attention is that some pet owners are "walking" their dogs without a leash.
This is also against the rules and against the law. Anyone seen with a dog off the leash will immediately be fined and if it occurs a second time, you will be asked to remove the dog from the community.
Everyone should remember that having a pet in the community is simply a privilege and can be taken away at any time.
If we find that you are being irresponsible with your pet, we will "evict" him or her from the community and pet fees are not refundable.
Thank you all for your help in correcting this problem and a big THANK YOU to those responsible pet owners who DO follow the rules.
