Holiday Office Hours

In observance of the holidays, our Welcome Center will be closed on Tuesday and Wednesday, December 24th and 25th, and Wednesday, January 1st. Rent payments may be placed in the drop box. If you have a maintenance emergency, please call (704)684-0725. We hope you have a safe and happy holiday season!

Toy Drive

As in years past, we are participating in the Police Explorer’s Holiday Project, collecting toy donations through Sunday, December 15th. We would like to collect new toys for all age groups. Donations may be dropped off at the Welcome Center during regular business hours. Thank you for helping us to spread joy this holiday season.

Gift Wrap Station

Need a private place to wrap a present or two for someone special? Stop by the Welcome Center between Monday, December 16th and Monday, December 23rd. We will have a gift wrap station set up in the conference room, fully stocked with wrapping paper, tape, name tags, and bows.

Jingle Mingle

Share your holiday cheer with your neighbors and join us at the Welcome Center Clubhouse from 5-7pm on Thursday, Dec. 12th for our Jingle Mingle. We will have light appetizers, beverages, and a hot chocolate station while supplies last.

Holiday Decorations Contest

Show your holiday spirit and decorate your patio for all of us to enjoy! Winners of our Holiday Decoration Contest will receive some extra holiday bucks! Decorations must be kept within the patio or sunroom space. Judging will take place on Wednesday, December 18th, and winners will be notified on Thursday by phone.

1st Place: $50 Target Card
2nd Place: $35 Target Card

Package Delivery

This time of year, we receive an influx of packages in the office. With very limited space to store packages, we ask that all residents be prompt in picking up any items that may have been delivered to the Welcome Center. Don’t wait until the last minute – please make sure you pick up all packages by no later than Sunday, December 22nd. 

We will have a limited staff available on December 23rd, but if packages are not picked up by the time the office closes, you will not be able to retrieve them until Thursday, December 26th. Whether you are picking up deliveries or out shopping, remember not to leave packages or shopping bags in your vehicle.

Dog Walking

When walking your dogs, please make sure that they are kept on a leash at all times, and that they are “walked” at least 10 feet away from the building. In an effort to keep the areas in front of the buildings lush and green, please walk your dogs to the side areas, away from the main entry.

Pet Sitting

An Auston Woods resident is now offering pet sitting services only to members of the Auston Woods Community! 

As a registered veterinary technician, she is available to care for dogs, cats, and critters of all kinds! Rates start at $20/day. Please email Terri at todinkins@hhhunt.com for contact details.

Holiday Maintenance Reminders

  • Plan in advance for your holiday meals. Try out your lesser used appliances prior to the holidays to make sure they are in working order.
  • Turn your oven or stovetop burner off 5-10 minutes before cooking is done. Your food will continue to cook during this time, but you will save some energy.
  • If you leave town for an extended period of time, do not turn your heat off. Please leave your heat set to at least 60°. In the event that the temperature drops below freezing, this will help prevent pipes from freezing.
  • Boxes are plentiful this time of year. As a reminder, boxes should be broken down and placed in the designated bins at the trash compactors for recycling.
  • Garbage disposals are intended for small quantities of soft food disposal only. Leftover holiday meals that are disposed of in the garbage disposal will cause the system to back up.
