The New URNA Newsletter!

December 2, 2016

Greetings Upper Rockridge Neighbors,     

This is the kickoff of monthly URNA Newsletters to help us better stay in contact with you!
This mailing is addressed to: Current and Former Members of URNA, Volunteers. Feel free to forward to anyone!


1. URNA continues!  As you may have read on NextDoor, URNA was looking new volunteers. Some original board members will be retiring and we thank them deeply for their efforts. But URNA continues with some great new features, people, and Rates - and an informative new WEBSITE!! (you gotta check it out!)

2. Welcome Gordie Jacobs who will transition to lead the URNA Board! Gordie has completely upgraded and enhanced our website and newsletters, met with SC3 and started coordination with other new volunteers for membership push.

3. Other New Stuff: Our new URNA website/newletter will help provide communication with the community and attract new members.  We are coordinating with the SC3 Security Patrol services and looking to both enhance and change up hours of the patrol cars. We are lucky to have a GREAT new Security Patrol Officer (Alex Smith) driving our routes now and we hope that you get to know him as well.

4. Read our new Mission Statement...


We are excited to announce new rates for members!  The biggest obstacle to getting the most out of our patrol services is membership!  We NEED MORE OF OUR NEIGHBORS to participate. More members = more hours of patrol service = more safety for our area! We hope these rates will be attractive.

We know that some of our neighbors have their own alarm service patrols and some areas have cameras too. Remember that we ALL benefit from our service and the others. We now offer TWO MEMBERSHIP levels for URNA*:

FULL MEMBER:  $35/mo*

For full information about what features are included, please visit the website and see JOIN NOW! 

**Rates are for new members and renewals after Dec 1.

Dear loyal existing URNA members: We of course appreciate it if you wait for your next renewal for the automatic membership rate decrease (and thanks for extra support!) or feel free contact us at to pro-rate your renewal date or receive a credit for the lower rate if desired. Thx
