Thank you University City! Keeping the Thanks in Thanksgiving


Thanksgiving is here! We, the volunteers at University City Community Association, are looking for ways to keep the ‘thanks’ in Thanksgiving. Just like our friends and neighbors, we look forward to staying safe and healthy so that we can enjoy the winter holidays.

We give thanks to the many UCCA members who, through their UCCA membership dues, helped support and fund many events and projects in University City including special activities at our local schools and at Standley Park.

Despite this year’s challenges, UCCA continued to publish a print newsletter, host virtual public meetings, and provide news and information to community residents through our email lists, website, and social media. We thank our newsletter advertisers without whom we would not be able to publish our monthly print newsletter.

We’re also thankful for all the volunteers who give tirelessly to our community through various volunteer organizations such as UCCA, the Parks Council, EdUCate!, PTAs, UC Cluster, Planning Group, Community Plan Update Subcommittee, Community Recreation Group, Garden Club, Fire Safe Council, and UCCA’s own University City News newsletter delivery team, various special committees, and neighborhood watch volunteers.

We are especially grateful this year to Jemma Samala, Jim Beshears, Phil Fowler, and Katie Rodolico who volunteered to run for office and have been elected as UCCA’s president, vice president, treasurer and recording secretary. They will officially assume their roles on December 1, 2023.

We look forward to the special holiday events at both Standley Park and Doyle Park on December 8 and 9, 2023. Don’t miss the Dinner with Santa and Holiday Celebration at Standley on Friday, December 8. And check out the Winter Wonderland at Doyle on Saturday, December 9.

Thank you all for making University City more than just a neighborhood.
