Save the Date! Here’s the December 2023 Newsletter and Short List of University City community Events and Meetings


👋Hello University City neighbor, this message is from outgoing UCCA president Diane Ahern: These are my last few days as UCCA president. Congratulations to UCCA’s new Executive Team – Jemma Samala (president), Jim Beshears (vice-president), Phil Fowler (treasurer), and Katie Rodolico (recording secretary). I’m thrilled that Jemma, a long time University City resident and volunteer with tons of experience, will assume the role of president along with her exec team on December 1. Please read their bios in the November newsletter, page 4; and welcome them when you have a chance. Their email addresses will be in the December newsletter. I will stay on the UCCA board as the Corresponding Secretary and assume the title of Past President.
