Beautification in the Heart of Old Arlington

Joe and Marlene Berwanger started their own fund at the UACF in 2014 to give back to the community that has given so much to their family. Through their fund, they’ve established hanging baskets and planter beautification to the Arlington Mallway that’s sure to provide vibrancy for years to come.

“We hope our efforts will inspire others in our community to contribute to the Foundation, and make their own dreams for Upper Arlington come true.”

Bringing Generations Together for Years to Come

The happiest day of the year for Merry and Jim Hamilton is the Fourth of July. All their lives they’ve loved seeing generations come together and appreciate the blessings of our UA Community. To them, our churches, student unions, parks, Senior center and libraries reflect a heartwarming commitment to serving everyone.

“There has been talk — and a dream — of an Upper Arlington Community Center since I was a child in UA.  How wonderful it would be to have that dream come true in my lifetime to provide that “Fourth of July feeling” for generations to come.”

— Merry and Jim Hamilton

Building a Lasting Legacy

Jenny Lou and George Renkert initially moved to Upper Arlington 63 years ago because it was a beautiful, friendly, thriving community. The outstanding school system, administration and civic pride continues to inspire them to spread their love of Upper Arlington.

“Our fund has helped build a garden, renovate Safety Town, and add new equipment for the police department.  We’re all here because we appreciate the amenities UA offers. Support, in any degree, of the Foundation will help our community to continue thriving.”

— Jenny Lou and George Renkert
