We are so grateful to our sponsors of our annual fundraiser, Raise the Roof. Because of their generosity, we are able to have made over $56,000 in grants in 2017!
The start of UA’s Centennial year is only about four months away, and the UA100 Centennial Task Force is ramping up its efforts to put on a year to remember. Here is a summary of some of the exciting projects we have in store:

Thanks to the Upper Arlington Historical Society, a new history book of UA’s first 100 years, A Cherished Past, A Golden Future, will be published this fall in time for the holidays. Copies can be pre-ordered online.
Preorders Taken at UA Labor Day Arts Festival, Monday, September 4
Look for the City/UA Centennial tent at the Arts Festival this year, to see samples of the Centennial merchandise that will soon be available. We’ll be taking preorders that day, and scheduling other opportunities in the weeks ahead.
As 2018 begins, UA households will all be mailed a copy of our Centennial Magazine
, featuring articles about our Centennial celebrations, interesting historical anecdotes about UA, and a full calendar of events for the year. Businesses are invited to support this publication by placing advertisements in the magazine. Please contact Tim McKelly, at email@example.com
or 614-572-1256. The deadline is November 1, 2017.

A Centennial Fund has been established at the Upper Arlington Community Foundation. Your donation, large or small, will help us fund a series of celebratory activities, from Centennial street banners to a Centennial Time Capsule. Visit the Centennial website for details, or call 614-583-5045.
