April 27, 2016 4:03 pm

The next time you’re planning a pizza night at home, forget your usual delivery spot and make your own pie. With these easy and authentic recipes for homemade pizza dough, you can turn your apartment into your own miniature pizzeria!

Pizza Crust [King Arthur Flour]
If you have some free time early in the week, make this simple recipe that holds for up to two days. It bakes thin and crispy when rolled flat with a rolling pin, but if you prefer a chewy crust, it can also be made thicker.

Quick Basic Pizza Dough [Martha Stewart]
For hot, fresh pizza on the spot, this quick dough is very simple to make. Simply mix your flour with olive oil, salt and a sprinkle of sugar, and then give it a few kneads before using. If you have leftover dough, you can also wrap it in secure plastic wrap and store it in the freezer for up to three months.

My Favorite Pizza [The Pioneer Woman]
Whether you’re a vegetarian or a meat lover, this recipe for pizza crust can be topped with anything to make it your own. This recipe makes two separate pies, so it’s perfect for pizza parties, and it even stores in the refrigerator for up to three days.

Today is Administrative Professionals Day

April 27, 2016 2:01 pm

April 27th, 2016 is Administrative Professionals Day, do not forget to recognize those hard working people in your office!

Some facts about this day:
Administrative Professionals Day recognizes and celebrates the work of secretaries, administrative assistants, and other office professionals for their contributions to the workplace.

Administrative Professionals Day is always observed on the Wednesday of Administrative Professionals Week (April 24-30 in 2016). More than 4 million secretaries/administrative assistants are part of the U.S. workforce. (Source: U.S. Department of Labor, 2010)

The History of this day:
Three people led the effort to create Administrative Professionals Day/Week: Mary Barrett, a past president of the National Secretaries Association – now called the International Association of Administrative Professionals (IAAP); C. King Woodbridge, president of Dictaphone Corporation; and Harry F. Klemfuss, public relations account executive at Young & Rubicam.

U.S. Secretary of Commerce Charles Sawyer proclaimed the first observance of National Secretaries Week as June 1-7, 1952. Wednesday, June 4, 1952, was designated the first National Secretaries Day. In 1955, the National Secretaries Association changed the dates to the current celebration during the last full week of April.

The name of the observance was changed to Professional Secretaries Day/Week in 1981 when the National Secretaries Association became Professional Secretaries International (PSI).

In 1998, PSI changed the organization’s name to the International Association of Administrative Professionals (IAAP), and the name of the occasion was changed again in 2000, when the IAAP designated the holiday as Administrative Professionals Day/Week. The name change reflects the changing job titles and expanding responsibilities of today’s administrative workforce.

Happy Administrative Professionals Day!!!

Windsor at Meridian Friendly Community Reminders

April 21, 2016 2:00 pm

Residential Portal

The Residential Portal is a convenient tool available for your use for everything from paying rent to submitting work orders. Our office staff would be more than happy to sit down and help you create an account, set up automatic payments or show you how to check the status of your work orders. Feel free to stop by the office – it only takes a few minutes! Click Here to access the Residential Portal.

Quiet Hours and Amenities

Our apartment quiet hours are daily from 8:00pm to 8:00am. We encourage all residents to keep their private conversations, music/movies and other sounds to a minimum during this time. These hours also apply to our Clubhouse and outdoor amenities. Please be mindful of noise levels when using the playground, sand volleyball court and dog park as these amenities are situated between apartment buildings. Residents have varying schedules and we would greatly appreciate your cooperation to ensure everyone is comfortable in their home.

Although our pools are closed for the season, the Clubhouse hot tub is not. Please do not bring glass of any kind while using the hot tub – All other pool rules apply as well. The hot tub is open from 8:00am – 10:00pm.

Pet Waste

Windsor at Meridian is proud to be a pet friendly community and although we love our furry residents, we have noticed an on going problem with pet owners not picking up after them. We have several pet waste stations conveniently located throughout the property with bags and trash cans to help keep our grounds clean. If you have suggestions for areas which need new stations, please contact the Management Office. In addition to cleaning up after your pet(s), all dogs must be on a leash at all times.

Seasonal Protocol

As temperatures continue to drop, please keep in mind these following measures to maintain the comfort and safety of your home. Thermostats must be set at a minimum of 65 degrees, while residents are home or away, to ensure all systems continue to function properly. In the case of a Freeze Alert, signs will be posted at each vehicle gate reminding everyone to leave all faucets on a slow drip. This will help to avoid freezing pipes. In the case of inclement weather, Management will plow all roads and sidewalks within the Community. Residents are responsible for clearing their driveways and carports.
