In January, the Underwood Hills Neighborhood Association (UHNA) Membership Committee’s Welcome Wagon rolled out to greet five new households to the neighborhood. Cynthia Williams and Amy Panos, pictured above visiting new neighbor, Jamie Bell, kicked off the season by welcoming the recent arrivals in this year’s first visit.

The Welcome Wagon Team, led by Cynthia Williams, identifies new arrivals and plans quarterly visits to their homes to provide a welcome packet with essential information about Underwood Hills and a complimentary flower bouquet donated by a neighborhood business, Florist Atlanta. We are fortunate to have Florist Atlanta as a partner, so please remember to visit them at the shop tucked in the corner at White St. and Howell Mill Rd.

In addition to the flowers, the team includes a welcome note, a map of the West Midtown Design district and tips on how to stay informed of social events and happenings around the neighborhood.

If you know of new neighbors to Underwood Hills, or would like to join the Welcome Wagon on their next visit, please contact Cynthia at madamew@hotmail.com.
