In addition to a slide show of highlights from the past year and a preview of coming attractions, ONSLRG’s members elected 5 individuals to serve on the Board of Directors for the 2010-2012 term. Re-elected to the Board were Tino Ochoa, John Burse, Johnnie Owens, and Kathryn Bentley. Also elected was Brian Krueger, one of the most active volunteers at the 13th Street Community Garden and the North City Farmers’ Market.
The meeting also was an ideal occasion to recognize neighbors who have made significant contributions to the quality of life in Old North over the past year. Good Neighbor Awards were presented to Graham Lane and Ben Sever, who tirelessly gave of their time to numerous projects, including the Macho Action Group clean-ups, set-up at the North City Farmers’ Market, service on multiple committees, and opening their homes for tours on a regular basis; and to Kathleen Parvis, who took the lead on last year’s House & Community Tour and recruited scores of SLU students to assist with neighborhood clean-up and garden projects as part of their law school orientation week.
As usual, though, the highlight for many was the feast of casseroles, cakes, biscuits, and salads from the kitchens of neighbors and friends, and the chance to share a meal with new and long-time neighbors on a cold, wintery evening.
