Moving out? Have stuff you want to get rid of? Think other people would be interested in your items? Family Housing is organizing a community wide yard sale and residents can sign up to sell their things. Family Housing will provide advertising within the Athens community for our yard sale. We will be setting up in the grassy median across from Building Q on Rogers Road. Residents will be responsible for providing their own table or blanket to display their

things, as well as their own money for change. Pricing of items and selling is up to the resident. Please note that it is customary to place very reasonable prices on items being sold in yard sales. Many people will pass over an item rather than haggling over the price. We will provide some sticker tags for resident use if they wish to tag items with prices. If you are selling large items such as furniture, you may wish to take a picture of the item for potential buyers.

up of their items. If items remain after the sale is over, residents cannot leave anything in the community or near the dumpster. All items must be disposed of. If you would like to participate, please email . Include an example of some of the items you will be selling for our advertisement.

Residents are completely responsible for set-up and clean-

Spring Egg Hunt

J & J Flea Market

Celebrate spring with a children’s egg hunt! We will meet at the basketball court in Bldg D at 11:00am on Saturday, April 16th (weather permitting). We will have egg decorating and a candy egg for hunt for children. Children must be supervised by a parent, and please make sure that your child has a basket or sack for collecting eggs. If the weather is poor on Saturday, we will move the event to Sunday afternoon at 2:00pm. E-mail by Wed., April 13th.

Open on Saturdays and Sundays, year round, J & J Flea Market is an Athens landmark you won’t want to miss while you’re here for school. Featuring 5 restaurants, 4 25,000 square foot buildings, and over 1000 outdoor vendor spaces, you certainly won’t be able to see it all in one day. We’ll carpool from the FGH office at 8:30am on Saturday, April 9th, and leave the market at 12:15 to return by 12:45pm. E-mail by Wed. April 6th to RSVP.

The maintenance crew completed 449 work orders between 3/01/11 and 3/30/11 P-building: The asbestos contractor finally finished and construction is going on throughout the building. The left side of the building of course is much farther along and they are already hanging cabinets on the second and third floor. This building is supposed to be ready August 1st for move in, which means that construction has to be complete around the middle of July. We are about to start pressure washing the outside of all our buildings if it ever dries up some. I will send out e-mail notices as to when we will start on your building so that you will know to close your windows. The pest control company just complet-

ed baiting all apartments for roaches. They use a paste that looks like peanut butter and they place it under cabinets and behind the refrigerators and stoves. This should reduce the amount of pest that you will have in your apartments. When you use the laundries and you have trouble with a machine please email or call in a work order, just as you would with your apartment. We need to know which laundry and which machine is not working. Please do not tamper with the smoke detectors in your apartment. This is the first warning that you will get in case there is a fire in your apartment. If you disable the head and there is a fire not only are you endangering yourself but everyone in your building. Call the F&GH office during the day and the Resident Manager on duty at night to silence the head if you accidentally set it off while cooking.

Pest Control: Peachtree Pest Control comes to Family Housing every Wednesday to treat apartments. Please have your work orders in before Wednesdays of each week or you will have to wait until the following week. *** Pest Control personnel have told me that roaches and other pest hate clean cool apartments. To keep pest down remove your trash daily and keep your food such as cereal, rice, breads in sealable containers. Wipe down your ranges and counter tops after cooking.
