University Heights is celebrating its 1888 beginnings in and around Trolly Barn Park on August 10 with a series of fun-filled community events, raffles, music and other activities. To celebrate this milestone anniversary, historic walk/bike tours, art & essay contests for Birney Elementary and a variety of historic-themed offerings are being planned. Thanks to Council President Todd Gloria for agreeing to be our Honorary Chair and being our sponsor, which enabled the city to waive the usage fees for the Trolley Barn Park.
The 125 Anniversary Committee is preparing many fun activities for all ages. Though we’re looking into applying for grants, don’t hesitate to contribute in any way that you can. We now have a 501(c)(3) tax exemption, so your 2013 donations may be tax-deductible. Join your neighbors in planning and celebrating this landmark anniversary.
