  • Presidents Report

    The 1994 Tour of Homes was a booming success, and many thanks go toBeverly Howard, Chairperson. The success of our annual Tour of Homes canonly be measured by the involvement of so many volunteers from ourneighborhood association and their obvious willingness to work. Unfortunately,it is not physically possible to list the names of all those who gave so much oftheir time and effort to this event. However, many thanks likewise go to all ofthose who worked so hard.

    The Board for the calendar year 1995 is off and running, and our thanksgo to Robin Krauss, the past President, for her untold hours of hard work andcommitment to our organization. Robins leadership has been exemplary, andthe overall condition of the association is reflected by her efforts.

    On December 19, 1994, the Augusta City Council passed an ordinancedeclaring the Summerville Neighborhood as a historic district. A committee isnow seeking information necessary for SNA to submit guidelines to the HistoricPreservation Commission which would apply to our neighborhood.

  • Congratulations to Summerville for becoming theCitys third designated historic district, joiningBethlehem and Downtown. Neighbors CARLDRENNAN, PAUL GONZALEZ, and BRYANHALTERMANN serve on the Augusta HistoricPreservation Commission.

    I know we do a lot of complaining about our weirdweather, but where else can we enjoy JapaneseMagnolias in full bloom on Groundhog Day? Besides,our wacky weather fuels zillions of social conversations,thereby coming to the rescue of the tongue-tied. Andwho says we dont get any snow? I pass softly driftedmounds of the pale stuff every day on the way toschool. It covers the clay property along Milledge forweeks just dont inhale too deeply it has a ratherpungent aroma. Were also fortunate that the mildwinter allows a multitude of different blooms to beenjoyed together. Camellia blossoms and nandinaberries are still in place when daffodils, snowdrops,tulips, and hyacinths pop up and plump pansy throwpillows are scattered all over the place. Then thecherries, quinces and redbuds add early color. We makeYankee friends and family quite jealous.

    Be prepared to be impressed big time! Theaccomplishments of neighbors of all ages have been inthe news lately. Lets start with the youngsters this time.MAGGIE BADGER served as a page in the GA Houseand CARL TYSONs design will be the logo for the newRiverwalk Marina.
