In 2008, my husband and I moved to the neighborhood expecting our first child. We moved here because of the great location, school and homes. However, soon after moving here I realized that the people and the strong community we create are what I love most about Sabin. I joined the Sabin Community Association because I wanted to work with enthusiastic neighbors to continue creating a terrific place to live.
Over the past five years, my primary contribution has been editing the Sabin Community Association Newsletter (SCAN). In addition, I have served on the Communications Committee, helped organize our twice-yearly neighborhood meetings, chaired the Nominating Committee to recruit new board members, and
offered elbow grease to our annual Sabin Clean-Up.
Just this June, I took on the chair position of the Sabin Community Association. I am excited to work with a fun, talented group of people and to continue important work of the SCA. I also hope to grow some of our existing sustainability initiatives into a strategic, local response to climate change, joining other local movements around the globe.
Watching my eldest daughter (I have two girls, 5 and 2-1/2 years old) finding her way as a kindergartner at Sabin School, I reflect on the new beginnings that so many of us are starting as fall settles in. I wish you well in your transitions. I hope to connect with you at the SCA potluck, at International Walk + Bike to School Day, at the Sustainability Committee formation meetings, or in another capacity in the months ahead.
