Secretary Dave Beahan Term 2011-2012
I have lived here in the Seminole / Holland neighborhood since moving here in 1973 from St. Charles. I graduated from Parkview High School in 1975 and did a stint in the US Navy for 4 years. After that, I earned a Associates of Science degree from SMS University, and work for City Utilities of Springfield. I am married to Karen, and we have a 17 year old disabled daughter that requires a lot of our care and attention. I hope to enhance life in our neighborhood by giving back as I can, and I am proud to be a founding board member of this newly formed organization. My hope is to serve this association well and to help in any capacity that I can.
Treasurer Allison E. Overmyer Term 2010-2011
Board Member Debra Barker Term 2011-2012
Board Member Ken Childers Term 2010-2011
I am a near lifelong resident of the Ozarks since moving from St Louis as a young child. I was invited to be a part of the Association because I own and operate Youth of the Ozark Thrift Store, a business on the western edge of this neighborhood. My store gives back a portion of our proceeds each quarter to The Boys & Girls Clubs of Springfield, The Boy Scouts of America and the Girl Scouts of the Heartland. I believe deeply in community service and as a business member hope to encourage more businesses in the neighborhood to get involved. I hope to someday live as well in the neighborhood because of its mature trees and excellent neighbors!"
