UPHA members elected new officers and discussed plans for the coming year at the organization’s annual meeting February 9.
On a cold and rainy night, the gathered neighbors dug into a tasty selection of fresh-made sandwiches and home-style cookies from Groucho’s, then heard from city council members Russ Stephenson (at large) and Kay Crowder (District D) about issues to watch in the coming year. UPHA’s board members made presentations on area planning and growth issues, finances, the dynamic new face of our website, and upcoming projects like the Easter egg hunt, July 4th parade, and Halloween party.
The new slate of UPHA officers elected were:
President: Chris Herndon (Pogue St.)
Secretary: Suzanne Frederick (Rosedale Ave.)
Treasurer: David Novak (Cherry Ln.)
VP for Real Estate: Greg Flynn (Barmettler St.)
VP for Communications: Randy Carter (Clark Ave.)
VP for Community Development: Karen Ryden (Tallon Hall Ct.)
At Large: Bill Hamilton (Barmettler St.)
At Large: Bailey Tucker (Furches St.)
At large: Ann Sides (Roberts St.)
Outgoing president Sallie Ricks (Rosedale Ave.) remains on the board for one year as past president
