July 4th Theme

Floats are the heart and soul of the parade! Every year they are great and every year they get better. We have a lot of floats now, but there is always room for more. The parade theme for this year is: Peace, Love & the 4th of July!!!

Thanks for a great 2014!

The UACA has closed the books on another successful year. We put on 8 great events, entertained 1000′s of kids, and recognized 12 amazing teachers.

Thank you to all the volunteers that helped make this year great. You knocked on doors, helped scare the unsuspecting and contributed to the Christmas spirit during Santa’s visit.

We’ll be back in 2015 for our 82st year of community fun! See you then!

UA Named One of the Best Towns for Families

Family Circle Magazine has listed Upper Arlington, Ohio as one of its “10 Best Towns for Families for 2013.” Read the article here.

From the web site: “With the help of Onboard Informatics, a New York City research firm that provides real estate, demographic and other data, Family Circle initially assembled a list of 3,335 cities and towns with populations between 10,000 and 150,000. From that, nearly 1,000 localities having a high concentration of households with median incomes between $55,000 and $100,000 were selected. We then assessed which places best met our family-friendly criteria—including affordable homes, quality schools, access to health care, green space, low crime rate and financial stability—and ranked them from top to bottom.”

Wendy Hinton Gomez ’87 was quoted in the article, praising Upper Arlington’s many family offerings and the the importance that UA traditions play in making this one of the most attractive communities in the nation.
