Winter Hill Apartments Resident Earns Honors in Affordable Housing Calendar Contest


Winter Hill Apartments resident Ruth K. Kaufman received an honorable mention for her submission in the National Affordable Housing Management Association’s 2013 calendar contest. Kaufman’s poster was chosen from more than 5,000 submissions for an honorable mention. During the NAHMA poster auction in March, John Yang from Rental Housing Deals purchased Kaufman’s poster for $650 and requested that it be framed and returned to the artist’s property. The poster, along with two other paintings by Kaufman and a book of her illustrated poems, is now on display in the Winter Hill Management Office. Earlier this month Terry Doherty, executive director of the Mid-Atlantic Affordable Management Housing Association, presented the framed poster to Kaufman at a Winter Hill resident luncheon and thanked her for participating in the contest.
