Your Auston Grove Team would like to wish you all
a very Happy Valentine’s Day. We try to spread our love to you all year round,

Either way, we hope your day is full of love and joy.

Super Bowl:
Sunday, February 1, 2015

On Sunday, February 1st , Super Bowl XLIX will take place as the New England Patriots and the Seattle Seahawks will play to decide the National Football League champion for the 2014 season. Kickoff is scheduled for 6:30pm Eastern Time.

If you are having or attending a get together, here is a cool recipe you might want to WOW the crowd with:

Old Bay Wings

2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon Old Bay seasoning
2 pounds chicken wingettes and drumettes
2 1/2 tablespoons red hot sauce, preferably Frank's Red Hot
2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce

Preheat the oven to 500°. Line a large baking sheet with foil and spray with vegetable oil. In a bowl, mix the flour with the salt and Old Bay seasoning. Add the chicken and toss to coat. Spread the chicken on the baking sheet in a single layer and spray with vegetable oil. Roast the chicken for 45 minutes, turning once or twice, until browned and crispy. In a bowl, toss the chicken wings with the hot sauce, butter and Worcestershire sauce; serve.

Celebrate Black History Month

Black History Month began in 1926 as part of an initiative by writer and educator Dr. Carter G. Woodson who launched Negro History Week in 1926.Woodson proclaimed that Negro History Week should always occur in the second week of February —between the birthdays of Frederick Douglass and Abraham Lincoln. Since 1976, every American president has proclaimed February as Black History Month. Today, other countries such as Canada and the United Kingdom also devote an entire month to celebrating black history.

Friendly Reminders

  • When parking in a space, do not park in two spots. Please be considerate of your fellow neighbors and make sure to properly park in one spot. Also, when waiting for someone, please park in an actual spot. It prevents blocking drive through traffic and other residences from coming and going.
  • If you have any volunteer activities, party ideas, community events, or any other ideas you would like to see in the community feel free to contact the office. We would love to sign up and/or participate to be a part of what you suggest in our efforts to be an engaged community partner!
