After all the time spent planning for Upper Arlington’s Centennial Celebration, it’s hard to believe the year has come to a close. So many favorite moments to remember: UA’s Birthday Celebration, the Fourth of July Legacy Project Unveiling, the 1918 Centennial brew, the fall Centennial Cycle event… As we reflect on the last year during the upcoming State of the City Address, and the century that went before, our thoughts will pivot to what lies ahead and the strong foundation that positions us so well for the next 100 years.
This year’s Address is scheduled for Monday, January 28, from 5-7:30 pm at the Municipal Services Center. The evening begins with the Community Fair, featuring exhibits from various civic organizations and City departments, and providing an opportunity for residents to meet with community leaders and staff during one convenient forum, while enjoying light refreshments.
To mark the start of the formal Address at 6:30 pm, the Upper Arlington High School Vocal Music group will treat attendees to a glimpse of their upcoming February production of Mamma Mia. We will then share highlights of the City’s and the community’s accomplishments in 2018, and provide a glimpse of the projects that lie ahead in 2019, sprinkled in with videos capturing our Centennial Year and announcements of our 2018 Community Award recipients. We will conclude the evening by formally acknowledging the close of our Centennial Year—by filling and sealing the Centennial Time Capsule and enjoying a performance of the Tremont Elementary Choir as they sing The Centennial Song.
Please join us Monday, January 28 for our State of the City Address, one last Centennial celebration, and to learn about our plans and hopes for the next 100 years.
