Worry Free Parking

Dear Residents,

We have been having some issues with residents parking their vehicles by the curb, blocking other people's vehicles or in front of garages that belong to someone else. Please remember that these residents are paying a monthly rent on these garages for the convenience of having an assigned parking space, and it is not so convenient to get home and find that someone else is blocking their garage entrance. These residents also have the right to have the vehicles that are completely blocking their garage towed!

If you would like more information on how to lease a garage just give us a call at (407) 396-8259 or stop by the office to find out what's available!

Paula Deen’s Pumpkin Pie Recipe… YUUUMMMMM….


~ 1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, softened

~ 2 cups canned pumpkin, mashed

~ 1 cup sugar

~ 1/4 teaspoon salt

~ 1 egg plus 2 egg yolks, slightly beaten

~ 1 cup half-and-half

~ 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) melted butter

~ 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

~ 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

~ 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger, optional

~ 1 piece pre-made pie dough

~ Whipped cream, for topping


- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

- Place 1 piece of pre-made pie dough down into a (9-inch) pie pan and press down along the bottom and all sides. Pinch and crimp the edges together to make a pretty pattern. Put the pie shell back into the freezer for 1 hour to firm up. Fit a piece of aluminum foil to cover the inside of the shell completely. Fill the shell up to the edges with pie weights or dried beans (about 2 pounds) and place it in the oven. Bake for 10 minutes, remove the foil and pie weights and bake for another 10 minutes or until the crust is dried out and beginning to color.

- For the filling, in a large mixing bowl, beat the cream cheese with a hand mixer. Add the pumpkin and beat until combined. Add the sugar and salt, and beat until combined. Add the eggs mixed with the yolks, half-and-half, and melted butter, and beat until combined. Finally, add the vanilla, cinnamon, and ginger, if using, and beat until incorporated.

- Pour the filling into the warm prepared pie crust and bake for 50 minutes, or until the center is set. Place the pie on a wire rack and cool to room temperature. Cut into slices and top each piece with a generous amount of whipped cream.

We would like to take this opportunity to say a huge THANK YOU to all veterans so here we go... VETERANS, THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE! Whether you serve now - or served decades ago - thank you for defending our freedom. On this Veterans Day, please take a moment to remember all those who served in uniform past and present. Though the words in this famous poem are about a soldier, they apply to every member of our armed services. May we never forget the sacrifices made to secure our liberty.

It’s the Soldier, not the reporter,
Who has given us the freedom of the press.

It’s the Soldier, not the poet,
Who has given us the freedom of speech.

It’s the Soldier, not the politicians,
Who ensures our right to Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness.

It’s the Soldier who salutes the flag,
Who serves beneath the flag,
And whose coffin is draped by the flag.


Dear Residents,

This year, as we plan our resident function for December, we would like to ask you to support Toys from Tyler, a toy drive that was started by a young boy (Tyler) who beat stage IV Neurobastoma in 2005. Tyler is a very brave boy who decided to bring toys into the hospitals to other children who were suffering from serious illnesses as he was through the holiday season. You can read more about him and the work that he has done and been awarded for at http://www.toysfromtyler.com/ . If you are interested in participating, we ask that you bring an unwrapped toy into our leasing office by 12/10/10.

Thank you and HAPPY HOLIDAYS!!!


Please join us to help give our adopted family a beautiful Christmas!

As most of you know each year the ContraVest Family, Friends, Vendors, Residents, and Contractors all come together to adopt Bernadette Hanlon, our BEAUTIFUL FRIEND and CO-WORKER to give her 6 daughters a Christmas they will never forget!

For those of you who have not heard of Bernadette's story, she is a single mom with 3 girls of her own and a less than 5 years ago her oldest daughter had a regular babysitting job to watch 3 little girls. Her daughter had an unexpected school event on the same night she had committed to babysitting. The girl's mother's name was Amy, that night Bernie offered to cover for her daughter by watching Amy's girls in her home. Amy's oldest daughter 13 at the time decided to stay home alone while the other girls stayed with Bernie. That night a turn of events drastically changed all of their lives forever. Amy's ex-husband broke into Amy's home tied up her daughter and waited with a knife for Amy to return. When Amy walked into their home she was brutally attacked and murdered in front of her 13 year old daughter. Luckily Amy's boyfriend who was parking the car walked in just in time to save Amy's daughter, he too was stabbed in the struggle and fortunately survived. Amy's daughter's had only one living relative a grandmother who was elderly and unable to care for the girls… Bernie took these distraught little girls into her home because they had no one. Their father was arrested and charged with their mother's murder. Fast forward nearly 5 years, Bernie has spent countless hours fighting the system to protect these children. She spent numerous hours at trial to see that their father paid for his crime and numerous hours at doctor's appointments for child counseling, she is proud to tell everyone that she was able to officially ADOPT the girls!

As you can imagine it's a difficult job being a single mother of 6 girls! Bernie's 3 girls have sacrificed so much by welcoming their new sister's into their very small home. Amy's daughters have suffered an unforgettable loss in the murder of their mom. No matter how difficult things have been Bernie has been the one constant in their life! Bernie is an "ANGEL" in every since of the word!

It is our honor each year to give this beautiful and certainly deserving family a wonderful Christmas one that they will remember and cherish for years to come! We ask that you donate whatever you can--no amount is too small! We are asking for donations in the form of gift cards (Visa, American Express, Wal-Mart or Target), cash or personal checks. Please make personal checks payable to Christin Tenpenny so she can cash them to make the actual purchases from the girls Christmas lists.

***Please bring in your donations to the Integra Meadows Leasing Office. We appreciate any donation you can make to help this family. If possible would love to receive the donations into us by December 10th to give us time to shop for the gifts! J.

From our family to yours, THANK YOU!


Dear Valued Resident,

With the harsh winter temperatures rapidly approaching we would like to remind you of a few tips that will help you in your apartment home.

1. Test your heat now to insure that it is in proper working order. Place the thermostat on the HEAT position/Auto at your desired temperature. NOTE: It is common to smell a strong odor the first couple times you use your heat. This will dissipate shortly. If you have any issues please contact the leasing office to have a service request placed.

2. When temperatures drop below 32 degrees you must have your heat on at all times! This is not optional as your pipes could freeze causing extensive water damage. Place the thermostat on the HEAT position/Auto at a minimum of 55 degrees to avoid frozen pipes. If you have a faucet located on an exterior wall of your apartment home it is recommended that you leave your cabinet doors open so heat can get inside to prevent the pipes from freezing. In addition you should turn your cold water on slightly so that it trickles this too will help keep the pipes from freezing. NOTE: If you have a planned winter vacation it is imperative that you DO NOT turn your heat off while you are away! It is always good to notify the management staff that you are leaving so that they can check on your pipes in your absence.

3. Lastly, if you do not have Renter’s Insurance we highly recommend that you get it! Many renters do not realize that if their personal contents, their neighbor’s person contents or the actual apartments are damaged or destroyed due to water, fire or Mother Nature that the landlords insurance does NOT cover the damages. For example: If your pipes freeze and burst causing flooding in your apartment and into a neighbor’s apartment you are then responsible for not only your repairs and replacement but also for your neighbors as well. Renter’s Insurance is very inexpensive as it typically runs around $120.00 per year. This may save you hundreds of thousands of dollars in damages if something were to happen. If your neighbor were to cause damage to your apartment home and personal renter’s insurance would cover your belongings “if” your neighbor did not have any coverage. Please protect yourself!

Have a safe and happy holiday season!
