Last week, two of our dynamic managers attended the National Apartment Association Capitol Conference in Washington, D.C. After nearly a year of hard work West Virginia has become an official affiliate of the NAA. We are so proud of the accomplishments of Debby Rose, manager at Country Club and President of the West Virginia Apartment Association. Debby was joined by Andrea O’Meara, manager at Pikeview Apartments and Vice President of the West Virginia Apartment Association
It’s that time of year when many of us resolve to get in shape and shed a few pounds. Those of us at The Manor Group are part of that group of resolution makers and struggle with keeping up with our goals once the first few weeks of January have passed.
A commonly heard excuse for not going to the gym is lack of time. We are all super busy with kids, jobs and Netflix, right? Fortunately, we offer an on-site fitness center. No need to spend time in traffic driving to an from the gym! Plus, if Netflix is still taking up too much of your free time, we provide complimentary WIFI so you can get your binge on while you work your bulge off!
Another way to keep yourself on track is to find a buddy. Walking club, Zumba classes and weight loss meetings are just a few of the wonderful community activities we have hosted so residents can get help in reaching their goals. Tell us what would help you stay accountable.
We wish you a fit and healthy 2017 and hope your resolutions become good habits. Remember that our pool season is just a few months away!
The holiday season is favorite time for the team at Country Club Apartments. One of the traditions we enjoy in December is our “Family Lunch” We break from the busy work day to eat, exchange gifts, laugh, and just have a lot of fun together. Lunch is followed by a White Elephant Exchange which is always entertaining, with wacky gifts that are always surprises. After the game, everyone indulges in sweets from “Kathy’s Treat Tray”. Thanks to Kathy, one of our amazing maintenance men’s wives, we get to chow down on a delicious variety of cookies, fudge, peanut butter balls, chocolate rain clusters, pecan balls, and so much more- yum! We reflect and tell funny stories that have happened to us over the past year. Before everyone gets back to work, we gather together for a “family picture.” Our “Family Lunch” has become one of our greatest holiday traditions.
At Country Club Apartments, we consistently strive to explore new ways of giving back to the community. This year we wanted to help Ayden Zeigler-Kohler, a 9 year old boy who is fighting brain cancer. Ayden is currently receiving radiation treatments five days a week at John Hopkins University Medical Center.
To help Ayden in his battle, we hosted a Fall Festival with a raffle for some amazing prise, including Marshall football tickets that were donated by a generous resident. We set up a hot dog stand and offered hay rides, face painting, a bouncy house, a pumpkin decorating contest for the kids, and a corn hole tournament for the adults.
A grand total of $1002 was raised for Ayden and his family to help with medical bills.We are so appreciative of the kindness and generosity of the great people who live at Country Club!
If you ask our residents what they love most about living at Country Club Apartments many will tell you it’s our wonderful maintenance team! Here at Country Club Apartments our main focus is customer service and making sure our residents are taken care of, which includes apartment maintenance. Our maintenance team’s main priority is to solve any obstacle in a thorough and speedy manner.
Whether it is a clogged drain, burned out lightbulb or a jammed patio door, our team members are on the job within the day. Unlike regular maintenance technicians that require you to take off work and let them in your house, with your permission, our team can make a service call while you carry on with your day. Our technicians bring card to leave at your door after each call. This allows our residents to know when a member has stopped in and explains how they have resolved the concern.
There is also no need to worry about after hours calls. With our 24-hour emergency maintenance we always have a team member on call to help with lock-outs and other urgent service requests.
Located in the largest inland port in the United States, Huntington, WV is a fun and lively community filled to the docks with culture and tradition. Huntington sits on the banks of the Ohio River, where Ohio and Kentucky meet. Talk about living in two places at once! Historically, Huntington’s ports were used to ship lumber and coal using steamboats to help expand the railroad. Now, the waters are used for more than just transportation, but also for leisurely activities, such as boating and fishing for largemouth bass and blue catfish.
Tired of the water? Time to strap on your land legs and head downtown to Pullman Square, a uniques outdoor shopping area featuring a variety of shopping and dining venues. Do not be fooled, Pullman Square is unlike any other “mall”. This superstructure also offers a calendar of family events throughout the year, such as free movies, a summer concert series and Max and Erma’s pancake breakfast.
Come see what makes us proud to call Huntington, WV our home.
The holidays are approaching and it’s a great time to share some of our family traditions. Debby Rose, manager at Country Club Apartments, tells us what she looks forward to on Thanksgiving Day.
“Every year on Thanksgiving Day the men get up early to go deer hunting while the women get up just as early to finish baking and cooking all of the food. My mom is a great cook, she makes everything from scratch; meaning it is all homemade. Growing up, my sister and I would have to sit for what seemed like hours, tearing loaves of bread into small pieces and then chopping celery into even smaller pieces. Once we were done with all the tearing and chopping, mom would add all the other ingredients in, mix it up and then stuff it in the turkey. While the turkey was baking, we would watch the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade as we finish making all the side dishes and desserts. My favorite dessert is the Turtle Cake; there’s nothing better than chocolate, caramel and pecans!
Once the hunters make it back, which is usually around 1pm, everyone is ready to eat! The table is set, the food is out and desserts are waiting. But first, my Mom has to get a picture of the two youngest kids with the turkey leg! She says, “Don’t eat it, just pretend like you are eating it.” Once the picture has been taken, it’s time to eat!”
