What's your favorite longstanding local business?
The Historical Society of University City is creating a list of businesses that have been a part of our U. City business community for 50 or more years (any business open by 1966, and still operating today). If you know of one of these long-time businesses, or if you own or work for one, please post below or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Send us their name and address and any history you know about this business. Thanks for your help.
Come meet our new city manager!
Each year, the Historical Society sponsors the “State of the City” event with our University City mayor and city manager as our guest speakers. This year, we’re especially pleased to be introducing new city manager Gregory Rose to the community. He’ll join retiring mayor Shelley Welsch to talk about what’s been happening in U. City this year and possible directions for the City in the future.
Pleased join us on Tuesday, March 6th, at 7:00 p.m. in the 5th floor Council Chamber at City Hall. While there is no question/answer session, stay for the reception that follows. This is your opportunity to visit with friends and neighbors, meet City Manager Rose, and thank Mayor Welsch for her years of service to University City.
Invite your neighbors and friends. We hope to see you all there.
This event is free and open to the public.
(And, by the way, March 4th is city founder E. G. Lewis’s 149th birthday!)
