The Union Hill Civic Association meets tonight at 7PM in Cedar Street Baptist Church.
I hope the time change and nice weather has allowed people to get out in our beautiful neighborhood here recently. Our monthly meeting will be [TONIGHT], March 16 beginning at 7 p.m. in Cedar Street Baptist Church. We have a lot to discuss and some great things on the horizon:
1) Lt. Laino will provide his monthly update on the criminal activity, trends, and law enforcement issues. He has also looked into the permit requirements for Jefferson Park based on the questions posed about Food Not Bombs at our last meeting.
a. Church Hill Irish Festival will be March 27-28th and is a wonderful way to showcase our neighborhood. Please encourage your neighbors as well as your friend who don’t reside in Union Hill to come down and see the area. Maybe stop by one of our restaurants or parks before heading to the festivities on 25th and Broad.
b. Informal Run- David Conmy’s group will do a light jog the morning of the Irish Festival to set the tone for the official race next year! Contact David for details.
3) Discussion of the Summer Social Series (or events) and slate of Officers for UHCA ’11/’12. Nominations are welcome! What direction do you want your neighborhood to go? Concerned about the crime or your property value? Want positive development or a certain business to open in your neighborhood?!?! Get off the fence and into a position to help make it happen!
4) Dues for this year are now owed! Please either pay through the PayPal links available, directly to Mark Lemaire, or pledge volunteer hours in-kind. Remember dues must be paid prior to voting privileges.
5) National Night Out Planning Committees: Last meeting we voted to participate in the large NNO event to be held in the 25th Street/Nine Mile Road Corridor. Several neighboring civic associations have joined up and broken down task into the following commitee
i. Activities – Justin Shelton, Chair

iii. Finance/Fundraising – David Conmy, Chair
iv. Physical Arrangement – Mary Thompson, David Conmy,Chairs
v. Hospitality – Bill & Ruth Andrews, Chairs
vi. Other committees to be decided as needed
You’ll note that some chairs are still needed so please feel free to volunteer. At the meeting, I’ll be looking for volunteers for the open chair positions and committee members. Union Hill has one of the largest networks, so let’s show it with volunteers. If you’d like to volunteer but are unable to attend the meeting Wednesday, please email with your choice of committee and best point of contact.
We look forward to seeing everyone there and please bring your questions/concerns/input.
