December 2014 Newsletter

Dear Friends of Five Points,

The Friends of Five Points Neighborhood Association held its Annual Meeting on November 18, 2014, at the No. 3 Firehall in Five Points. We heard reports from each of our committees (link here to full minutes), then we elected our officers for 2015. They are as follows:

Chair:                          Alice Kinman

Vice Chair:                  Kevin Florence

Secretary:                    Paige Cummings

Financial Officer:        Joyce Kitchens

Because Hank Qadir, Chair for 2014, had to step down, Sara Beresford graciously agreed to stay on another year as Past Chair.

The meeting included a lively discussion about what Friends of Five Points does and can do to further our mission “to enhance the quality of life in Five Points by facilitating communication among our neighbors.” As Chair, I shared two goals that I have for Friends of Five Points for the coming year:

  • To sponsor at least one adult-friendly activity centered on our business district
  • To structure future Board meetings, which are open to all members, around information sessions about government and other community services.

I invite your ideas and suggestions for these programs.

The Friends of Five Points Board would like to wish all of our members and neighbors a very merry holiday season!


Alice Kinman
FOFP Board Chair
