Dear Residents and Friends of Five Points,
I hope you’ve had a delightful summer and a relaxing Labor Day weekend. If you were out of town, you missed the many tailgate parties in the Five Points neighborhoods prior to the Clemson game and the busy scenes at Five Points businesses. Along with the presence of the University of Georgia, the Milledge Avenue fraternities and sororities, restaurants and retailers alongside graceful and historic homes contribute to the truly unique energy and atmosphere that we enjoy at Five Points. Let us all enthusiastically support more new businesses and renovations of some old structures to newer fraternities and sororities.
Although my term as Chair of the FOFP board continues until the end of this year, due to a hectic travel schedule this fall I have reluctantly decided to step down effective immediately. Chair-elect Alice Kinman will serve out the rest of my term as the interim Board Chair. The next Chair will be elected at our annual meeting in October. I am deeply grateful to her for her willingness to take over as Chair ahead of the regularly scheduled transition. I thank you all for the opportunity to Chair such a committed Board. The work of the Board is often invisible to residents, but you should know that the members of the Board: Alice Kinman, Sara Beresford, John Weatherford, Joyce Kitchens, Paige Cummings, Susan Field, Kevin Florence, Kristin Nielsen and Jill Gambill go over and beyond the call of duty in working for the interests of the neighborhood.
Alice Kinman will be writing to you in the near future with more information on the FOFP Annual meeting, which is slated for Wednesday, October 15th. Time and location will be announced soon.
Meanwhile let’s look forward to another great year for the Dawgs – perhaps matching their accomplishments from the early 1980s!
We are a volunteer organization and we will always count on your leadership and participation on committees for such events. Please send your ideas and suggestions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
