Following the Board election was the voting of officers by the new Board members. Serving as officers are Patrick Mutch, President; Bill Romani, Vice President; Cathy Hammond, Secretary; and Corey Robey, Treasurer.
"I'm delighted to be part of Federal Hill Main Street," said Cathy Hammond. I moved to the peninsula 6 years ago because of the vibrant commercial district, the wonderful neighborhoods and the friendly people. I believe a truly great neighborhood needs all three parts to succeed, and Federal Hill Main Street is the organization that works to strengthen each of those components."
In conjunction with the election and annual meeting was a Volunteer Appreciation Party, a chance for Federal Hill Main Street to thank the hundreds of folks how volunteer their time in support of the program and special events, such as the street festivals.
