No rhyme* this time, we choose the news to fill our space! UP’s a place of rising growth of all sorts—both large buildings and more buildings planned—a big concern! UP folks yearn for the good old days, before the maze of cranes and walls (so twilight falls much earlier now)!
But this is how it’s always been here, change galore! It’s just that now it’s coming more in bulk, and as well as higher, faster, what once was pasture, now disaster.
What to do? Watch like a hawk! Keep informed! Be sure to talk to the city, to councilmen, developers! Give them good ideas of how we live in a neighborhood with a character we have long established and wish to be respected. Try not to whine or shout. Let’s work together to work things out in honor of our UP 103 years of tradition!
In magnificent celebration of UPark turning 103 as a neighborhood, all agree it was a festive, eclectic, all-ages mix—a scene like 1886! Hundreds of folks, picnic blankets and chairs covered the park lawn everywhere. Good dogs wagged, fine children played, grownups chatted in the shade, the bands were great and the cake—we ate it all!
Thanks to those who planned it all so well, it was truly grand!
Now, we commend you to the UP board which named a new president (by full accord): Debbie Harrington! You can greet her Wednesday, Oct. 5, when we next meet at UP School, 6:30p.m. to chat, speakers at 7:00p.m. More will be at your doorstep in UP-Words, delivered to all UP homes. Missed? Give us a call.
