At our group’s Nov. 6, 2013, annual meeting, Trustee Donna Neal was elected as 2014 president elect, and she’ll serve as president in 2015. Sandra McSweeney, the current president-elect, will become president for 2014. Trustee Adrian Zilvetti was elected VP-Special Events for next year, and member Colin Scanes was elected as a new Area 3 trustee.

Re-elected for 2014 were current VP-Communications Jeff Bentoff, Secretary Dawn McCarthy, Treasurer Donna Neal and Trustee Sally Peltz. We currently have an open VP-membership position.

At the annual meeting, trustees thanked three outgoing officers for their years of service — President Lloyd Dickinson, VP-Special Events Lise Sadagopan and VP-Membership Thea Kovac. Lloyd served as president for 2012 and 2013. Lise and Thea have served for multiple years in their current positions but did not seek re-election for 2014. In 2014, Lloyd will serve as immediate past president, and Lise and Thea will remain as trustees.

Members also celebrated HWTN’s 40th anniversary with treats and champagne. VP-Communications Jeff Bentoff gave a presentation on our group’s history, and Ald. Nik Kovac presented the board and members with a proclamation honoring the group for its anniversary and contributions to the neighborhood. In another proclamation, Mayor Barrett had declared the day “Historic Water Tower Neighborhood Day.” More info on our group’s history is available at http://hwtn.org/about-hwtn/hwtn-history/ and http://hwtn.org/accomplishments/.
