Olde Forge/Surrey Square is a special place. Linda and I have watched the neighborhood grow and change a lot in the 33 years we’ve lived here. Yet; while the demographics change, traffic gets worse, we become less rural and more citified, and more languages are spoken OF/SS remains a place where peace, quiet, and mutual respect between neighbors continue to be the watchwords. I promise you that the new Board will do our best to keep it that way amid the changes and outside pressures.
While serving as the 2nd Vice President for the last two years I learned quickly that nothing gets done without a volunteer to do it. With that in mind please let me thank all of you who indicated your interest in supporting one or another community activity when filling out membership forms during the recent drive. We’ll let you know when the Board or a committee needs a little extra help and I hope you’ll have some time for the neighborhood when the opportunity arises.
-- George Klein, incoming Olde Forge / Surrey Square Civic Association President
