Welcome to Two New Board Members
At the June 19th Annual Meeting, two new individuals were voted onto the Board -- Bryan Warman and Laura Wulf.
Meet Laura Wulf.
I was born in Columbus. I have lived in UA since 1971, when we moved from New Jersey so that my father could begin his job as the first Director of Parks and Recreation in UA. I graduated from UA in 1975, and my husband Bill and I raised four daughters here who also graduated from UA. My daughters and their husbands all live out of town, so I am a busy mother / grandmother traveling to visit my kids and five grandchildren.
One of my favorite UA memories was attending the 4th of July parade one year with my husband and daughters to watch my parents in their role as Parade Marshals. The girls stood on the curb waving furiously and calling out to their Mim and Poppy to slow down and wait for them so they could climb on board the car! They all wanted to be a part of the parade, too!

I have always been interested in the history of places and particularly in the preservation of history/historical places, building. etc. I hope to work with fellow Board member Cindy Holodnak on the Houses of UA project, helping in any way I can. I love the idea of being able to pass on a history of a home to a new buyer! 
DID YOU KNOW - Thompson Park is named after Laura's father, Ken Thompson, in honor of his being UA's first Parks & Rec Director.
