Babbs Award and Elections To Be Held Via Zoom
Greater Park Hill Community’s Annual Meeting, including the annual Babbs Award and board elections, will be Thursday, Oct. 7. For the second year, the meeting will be held via Zoom, beginning at 6 p.m.
The Babbs Award for Community Service honors a man or woman who has made outstanding contributions to the Greater Park Hill neighborhood. The award is named for former Park Hill United Methodist Church Pastor J. Carlton Babbs, who was a trailblazer in the 1960s and 70s working for integration and justice. He was one of the founders of the Park Hill Action Committee, which became the GPHC, Inc. Registered Neighborhood Organization.
The agenda for the meeting includes welcoming comments by board Chair Tracey MacDermott, followed by an annual report and recognition of outstanding volunteers by GPHC Executive Director Lana Cordes. The board election follows the Babbs Award presentation. Board seats from districts 2, 4, 6, 8 and 10 are up for election this year, as well as three at-large seats. Click here for the district map.
