Board election, Penn Alexander Schoolyard re-design discussion at SHCA Annual meeting this Tuesday

November 12, 2018

The Spruce Hill Community Association (SHCA) will hold its annual meeting on Tuesday, Nov. 13, at 7:30 p.m., in the Penn Alexander School gymnasium (enter through cafeteria/blacktop entrance on 43rd street between Locust and Spruce). At its annual meeting, the community group elects new officers and board members and invites guest experts to talk about important community issues. The event is free and all community members are invited to attend, learn more about the organization, and get involved.

This year’s meeting will feature a presentation on a community-influenced, space-based initiative. Julie Bush, Landscape Architect, Principal at Ground Reconsidered, will be the featured speaker on “Penn Alexander School: Re-imagining the Schoolyard.” 

Along with annual committee reports, elections will be held for SHCA officers and board members. The nominating committee’s slate is running unopposed, with current executive vice president Evan Johnstone running for president and Monica Calkins running for executive vice president. Officers running for returning one-year terms include Veronica Alvarez for vice president (operations), Leslie Medley for secretary, and Andrew Richman for treasurer. Ten board members will also be elected.

The Spruce Hill Community Association is an all-volunteer group. Among other activities, the Association organizes and funds the annual Spruce Hill May Fair, works with the Little Osage neighbors to run the Halloween Parade and party, owns and maintains the Spruce Hill Bird Sanctuary, provides block improvement grants, funds a variety of charitable and neighborhood causes, and weighs in on zoning issues from a neighbors’ perspective as a Registered Community Organization.
