In today's fast paced world it is intriguing that the old adage from the French writer Jean-Baptiste Alphonse Karr, "the more things change the more they remain the same", still resonates. Back in 2009 Rosie Griffin, then President of IHCA, wrote: "...we still are one of the most desirable neighborhoods to live in since we are positioned right in the middle of the Perimeter business center as well as the Cumberland business center and close to I-75. We couldn't be in a better location. We have a very diverse community of individuals; young, old, black, white, Asian, and Hispanic. We are a melting pot of people who keep this community interesting. Our history in future years will depend on how these individuals get involved in our community, what they bring to the table and what price they are willing to pay to ensure that we do not allow the community to deteriorate. Indian Hills has a legacy and a good one. We must continue to make it one of the best places to live in Cobb County."
Those words are as appropriate and true today as they were a dozen years ago. Indian Hills is still the place to live because of the reasons she highlights. If we are to remain the "place to live" we need widespread involvement in our community by our community members. Everyone that lives here has a stake in our community. We need to embrace our responsibility.
If you are interested in serving on the Board of Indian Hills Civic Association, please contact me or any Board member. Currently we are looking for a Treasurer and a Director of External Affairs for 2022-2023. Or, if you just want to get more involved in our community let one of us know. There is plenty to do. Have a great and safe summer.
Harold Itkin, IHCA President
