December / January newsletter now online!

December 2016

Take a look at current and past issues of UCCA’s University City newsletters, and you may see ‘ancient’ history … or maybe you’ll see tradition. In 2002, the first year of publication, the top stories included beatification projects (medians and tree plantings) along Governor, updates about construction projects being evaluated by UCPG (including Westfield UTC Mall expansion), and breakfast with Santa.

In 2016, the front page story is Dinner with Santa and the Tree and Menorah Lighting with holiday music, combined into one large event, sure to delight kids of all ages, Friday, December 19, 5:30-7:30 PM, at Standley Recreation Center on Governor. For ticket information, refer to the University City newsletter or to Standley’s Winter Program.
