I would like to sincerely express my deep appreciation to our residents for their assistance in reaching several goals during my term as President, Our current President, Jerry Tucker, will be sharing thoughts with you as 2012 gets underway, but I wanted to take this last opportunity to tell you again a little about myself.
I became President at the beginning of 2010, and I'm happy to have been part of the many great accomplishments during my term for something we all care dearly about, our neighborhood. I've been a 12 year resident of York Chester, and my love for this place we all call home is evidenced by the fact that we bought another house here after selling our first one in the neighborhood. My family was growing, and we needed more space, yet instead of heading to the suburbs, I chose to stay as I truly knew this was the neighborhood I wanted to continue living in with my family.
I'm been gratified to see the positive changes and improvements to York Chester brought about by concerned residents such as yourselves, volunteers, our Board and neighborhood association members, and other local, state and national policy bodies that have similar goals of preserving and injecting new life into areas such as ours.
I'd like to end my term as President of the Association by heartily extending an invitation to all of you who want to be a part of the good things happening in our neighborhood, to join in and volunteer in whatever capacity you can so that we together can continue to provide a legacy for future residents of York Chester. Our neighborhood has many wonderful and significant homes, but our most valuable resources are the people like you who can make our shared dream of an even greater Historic District in Gastonia a reality. Please feel free to contact anyone on the Neighborhood Association Board to share your ideas, or to find out how you can also make a difference!
With my best regards,
