This year’s newest addition to the Taste of UA will showcase “The Buckeye Mobile Tour.” The Buckeye Mobile Tour travels throughout the state of Ohio, engaging fans through interactive games and sponsor activities. The tours will help bring the Buckeye Spirit to the streets. One of the corporate tour stops will be at the Taste of Upper Arlington. “I am extremely excited to partner with Ohio State IMG Marketing this year,” said Becky Hajost, president of the UA Area Chamber of Commerce. “Not only will they add to the spirit of the day, they will be bringing Brutus the Buckeye and the cheerleaders. We also have the ability to tag the Taste of Upper Arlington’s lead sponsors in advertisements that involve any cross promotion.” “With the inclusion of two 30-second commercials within the Ohio State/Big 10 pre-season kick-off show that will air on July 28 on 97.1 The Fan, as well as passthrough opportunities at select tour stops promoting the Taste of UA, our participants should see an additional uptick in attendance,” said Charlie Groezinger with SGO Designer Glass. This year’s Taste features two exciting bands, amusement rides and more for event goers to enjoy while sampling food and learning about the products and services offered by area businesses at the 18th annual Taste of UA.

We’re sure many more clients will come from this event and the cost is so insignificant compared to the return. We look forward to the next Taste of Upper Arlington.

Chamber Electricity Saving Program Hot enough for you out there? Well, summer is on the way, and if you haven’t turned on your air conditioner yet, you will soon. Staying cool in the summer sure does feel good, but ask your wallet if it feels the same. Hot weather is one of the most significant factors that will increase your electricity bills. There are plenty of ways to keep your A/C running efficiently and economical-

Whole Foods Market prepares for expansion Whole Foods Market, the world’s leading natural and organic supermarket and America’s first national certified organic grocer, is preparing for growth in the Upper Arlington area. As the store shifts location and increases in size to 35,000 square feet, Whole Foods Market will maintain a presence at the beautiful Shops at Lane Av-

enue open air lifestyle center. During the build of the new store, a smaller Whole Foods Market store will also open at the Shops at Lane Avenue. The smaller store will be equipped to meet the needs of the community as well as expand offerings to include extensive wine & cheese options, personal shopping and curbside loading and carry-out assistance. “We feel so fortunate to be able to remain in a location that has allowed Whole Foods Market to become part of the community; part of a family, while being able to expand our store and our offerings” said Missy Peoples, Whole Foods Market Upper Arlington Store Team Leader. “It’s quite a unique opportunity for us to have the ability to stay open during construction and introduce an express location. We are thrilled not only to be able to continue to operate, but remain in a location that really has become home to us as we transition to our new store just a few doors down.”

Chamber spotlight Bill Ubbing – Chair Finance Board of Trustees 1) What did you want to be when you grew up? An accountant. No, seriously, like most young Catholic boys, I considered the priesthood as a vocation. But meeting my wife Kathy in high school put an end to that calling. 2) What was the last movie you saw? To be honest, “The Hangover Part II.” OK, I was on vacation with nothing to do one afternoon and I guess the man-thing kicked in. Wish I could get that time back. 3) Who inspires you? My four children inspire me. They have all grown into fine, responsible adults who are never afraid to take on new

challenges and opportunities. 4) What do you enjoy most from being a chamber member? My involvement with the staff and other board Bill Ubbing members; so many skilled people giving so much of their time to help the organization and other members. 5) What do you love most about your job? The opportunity it provides to work closely with business owners and contribute my knowledge and experience to the growth of their

companies. 6) What was your first job? A Dispatch paper route. I loved counting all of the money after collecting. 7) What’s one thing you couldn’t do to save your life? Cook for myself. Ask my kids about the time I made macaroni and cheese from scratch when Kathy was out of town. They still laugh about it. Luckily, I married a great cook. 8) What is your favorite UA restaurant? We don’t eat out much, but I love the Bag’s fish and chips with a beer chaser. 9) What’s on your iPod? Strictly a Pandora guy now with my smartphone. One of my favorite station selections is The Traveling Wilburys.

Why do home buyers continue to choose UA? As the national housing market continues to realign itself, the residential property owner has started to reflect on the value statement of home ownership, the strength of the community in which they live and the amenity package the community offers. Once a home buyer considers the basic amenities of schools, location and architectural styles; consumer trends point us towards amenities such as proximity to shopping, parks, cultural events and walkability. A sustainable life experience is now a large piece of the home buyer’s decision. Upper Arlington offers many, if not all, of these lifestyle and life stage amenities. Our tradition of excellence in the areas of education, athletics, municipal services, local business support and civic events extend as far back as 1918. “These traditions make up the fabric of our community,” says Upper Arlington Civic Association president Chris Reinke. Chris and his wife, Carrie, chose UA because of the quality of the schools and the unique sense of community. This unique sense of community continues to be one of the major reasons home buyers

choose Upper Arlington. When residents are asked “Why UA?” many times they explain it only DOUG by the word “community.” RYAN Other times the conversation follows that which is similar to the outline of a history book. One of the most celebrated days in Upper Arlington is July 4th. The Independence Day celebration is a shining example of our outstanding community spirit. For many residents, this is why they live in UA. The Upper Arlington Civic Association invites

you to join the celebration. Log on to: www.UACA.ORG to learn more about the events. Currently Upper Arlington has 328 active residential listings for sale, of which 245 are single-family homes and 83 are condominiums. List prices range from $54,900 to $2,680,000. Statistics provided by Columbus Board of Realtors MLS. Doug Ryan is the broker/owner of Douglas Real Estate Inc. He has been working in the real estate industry for more than 20 years and has been as a licensed real estate professional for 18 years.
