At the January 24th Executive Committee meeting, Gretchen
and Paul Nagy announced they would be resigning as President and Treasurer of
the Allandale Neighborhood Association. Both have put in a number of years of
service to the neighborhood and are commended for their ongoing commitment to keeping the association running smoothly. It’s a bigger job than most people realize. Their
resignations will take effect following the next Executive Committee meeting in
February. Both are committed to ensuring a smooth transition and will be
working closely with the other Executive Committee members on the knowledge
transfer.

We also want to thank Susan and Jeff Frank for their years of service
to the neighborhood association and to Kay Newell who served as
Secretary and overall
resource regarding all things neighborhood. Patrick Manley also resigned this month. He is a more recent EC member who set up the Allandale Neighborhood Improvement Challenge and who will continue to promote it. Collectively, their
involvement in
the neighborhood has contributed to the making and preservation of a
great
neighborhood! None of these people are moving away and we hope we can
continue to turn to them as a resource on future neighborhood matters.
