Locals are invited to celebrate the Old Seminole Heights Neighborhood Association (OSHNA), which will observe its 30th anniversary this week. In honor of the Tampa neighborhood association’s three-decade run, a special celebration is planned from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 23, in the main hall of American Legion Post 111.

Guest speakers include Tampa Mayor Bob Buckhorn and Hillsborough County Commissioner Pat Kemp, along with past OSHNA presidents. Several other city officials are expected to attend.

The neighborhood association will also recognize the legacy of Evan St. Ives during the event. St. Ives has served on the OSHNA board in a number of roles, including president and treasurer, since the organization’s inception.

Founded as a way “to promote and encourage the preservation and restoration” of the historic Seminole Heights area “while revitalizing a sense of community,” OSHNA hosts quarterly general membership meetings on the fourth Tuesday of every month. The 30th anniversary celebration functions as one of them, but, again, the public is encouraged to attend.
