Community Heroes - Volunteer

BE AN EVERYDAY HERO

Volunteer firefighting is one of the most rewarding experiences you’ll ever

have. Community VFD offers free fire training and volunteering is a great

way to make a difference personally while having a positive impact in your

community. Volunteers can fight fires, drive apparatuses, extract patients from

vehicles at accidents scenes and etc.

BEAT THE HOLIDAY WEIGHT

Mashed potatoes, homemade apple pie, stuffing, hot dinner rolls with

melted butter, creamed corn, green bean casserole, salad with all the

fixins’ and of course the main dish - the BIRD. All of this equals at least

2,000+ calories. What is a holiday food enthusiast to do? Yes, you CAN

avoid the holiday weight gain! Here’s how:

• Drink H2O before you eat: chances are, you are thirsty before any and

every meal; drink a full glass of water to quench your thirst first, then

notice you will feel fuller.

• Rainbow plate: make sure your plate has color - fresh/not creamed

items, broiled or grilled vegetables, protein, carbohydrate and again,

water.

• On the side: those side dishes - mashed potatoes, casseroles, stuffing,

dressing, etc. are SIDES not main dishes; make sure to keep these

portions small.

• NO to salad dressing: hooray there is a salad! BUT - that tasty dressing

(ranch, thousand island, French, Russian, balsamic vinaigrette, etc.) will

reverse the purpose of the ruffage; instead, make your own dressing at

home and bring it with you or simply ask for olive oil, salt & pepper and

maybe a hint of lemon.

• Walk it off: finished eating? Go for a WALK; football can wait (yes, even

the college games), because your body deserves better.

PREPARE YOUR HOME FOR WINTER

Preparing your home for winter can save you time and money. A little

preparation time in October or November can save you from the

heartache of these winter disasters.

GUTTERS - Remove leaves and other debris from gutters, so they move

and properly drain. Improper drainage can cause seepage into the house

causing water to drip from the ceiling and walls.

TREES - It is important to trim the trees especially over the roof area,

driveway and walkways. Ice and wind could cause weak or dead branches

to break. This could damage your home, your car or injure someone.

INSULATION/PIPES - How’s your insulation? Proper insulation saves

in your utility bills and also helps protect pipes from freezing. Wrap all

exposed pipes. Check for cracks and leaks and have them repaired to

prevent more costly repairs later. Learn how to shut off the water. If your

pipes do freeze, shutting off the water may help prevent the pipes from

bursting. Keep the temperature inside the house at least 65 degrees. A

lower temperature may not keep the pipes from freezing.

HEATING SYSTEM - It is important to service your heating system at least

once a year. If you have a wood burning fireplace, the chimney should

also be serviced once a year. Smoke and fire alarms should be working

properly and you might consider installing a carbon dioxide detector.

IF YOU ARE AWAY FROM HOME - If you are going to be gone for an

extended period of time during very cold weather, drain the pipes to

prevent freezing. Also have someone check on your home regularly. If

there is a problem, it can be fixed quickly, possibly preventing further

damage. Remember to have mail and newspaper delivery held and

notify the constables that you will be gone. Go to www.constablepct4.

com to put a vacation watch on your home.

Community VFD also provides emergency medical services (EMS) and provides

opportunities for individuals with a Texas EMS certification to serve their

community.

National Charity League, Inc.

Lady Bird Chapter Hosts Back to School Senior Fashion Show

This past August, the National Charity League, Inc., Lady Bird Chapter (NCL, Inc.) hosted a Peace, Love and NCL Runway Fashion Show at the Redeemer

Community Church in Katy. The Class of 2020 organized the event which has become a back to school tradition for the chapter. The senior class

modeled fashions from Sassafras Boutique and Gifts (Katy) and jewelry from Park Lane Jewelry (Katy). Proceeds from the show will benefit one of the

chapter’s philanthropies, Keep Kids Connected and help subsidize the cost of their Senior Recognition Program in May of next year. The Senior Class of

2020 has been together since 2014 and along with their mothers, they completed thousands of philanthropy hours in the Katy area. What a fun way for

these girls to start their senior year! For more information about the NCL, Inc., Lady Bird Chapter, please visit www.ladybird.nationalcharityleague.org.

Gardening Tips For November

• Brown patch will continue to plague St. Augustine lawns as nights get cooler and humidity and rain continue. Discolored circles will appear in low

areas almost overnight. Apply a fungicide recommended for brown patch according to label directions. Avoid walking through brown-patched turf.

It spreads easily from the bottom of your shoes. If brown patch appears in the same lawn areas every year, add an inch or two of sandy topsoil to

eliminate those low spots.

• Fertilize St. Augustine turf with a winterizing formula to promote root growth over the winter months. Lower your lawn mover blades now and mow

on a schedule that cuts no more than one-third of the grass blade away.

• As chrysanthemums and other perennials finish blooming, cut flowering stalks to the ground to permit all strength to be used in making root growth.

• Feed roses lightly, but avoid nitrogen fertilizers. Do not prune now. Keep up spraying program and water deeply.

• Remove dead foliage and plant debris to help eradicate insects and disease organisms. Thin out and transfer volunteer seedlings. Beds made now

will benefit by weathering before being planted. If soil is heavy, dig six inches deep, leave rough, cover with gymsum and strawy manure, water and

allow to mellow.

• Bananas are more likely to bear fruit if the trunk does not die back in winter. Cut banana stalks back to six feet, wrap with newspaper and burlap.

• Continue mulching for winter. Build up a thick top mulch to protect roots from freezing and winter drying. Don’t throw away those pine tree needles;

they make great acidic mulch for azaleas, gardenias and next Spring’s impatiens.

• Place pansies in beds after weather has cooled. Use a little blood meat mixed in soil under each plant.

• Now is the best time to plant trees and shrubs.
