AHLOA Elects Newshel President

Posted August 28th 2023

Tony Newshel, who has been a member of the Avalon Home and Land Owners Association leadership team since 2017, was elected the group’s president for the 2023-24 season. Four new trustees also were brought aboard in the August election. Newshel, who resides full-time in Avalon with his wife Ginny, retired last year after 40 years as an information technology professional focused on domestic and international payments processing. A La Salle alumnus who has been involved with AHLOA for many years, was installed as a trustee six years ago before becoming AHLOA’s secretary and “IT guy” in 2019. Ron Fairman, Deidre “Dee” Hutchinson, Richard Hluchan, and Debra Noll comprise the new board of trustees. Fairman and his wife Julie bought their first Avalon home on 10th Street in the early 1980s. They have since built two homes and as of last August became full-time Avalon residents. While they never anticipated retiring in Avalon, they decided to give it a try and they love living here, even in the winter! Hutchinson first came to Avalon in 1975 after graduating from Villanova, renting a house with a group of friends. She quickly realized Avalon was a shore town unlike any other. Dee and her husband, Ed, now split their time living in Avalon, Philadelphia and Juno Beach, Fla. Dee is happy to give back to the Avalon community. Hluchan and his family have enjoyed their home in Avalon since 1993. The Georgetown alum and longtime AHLOA member is a volunteer with the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia, and Interfaith Caregivers in Haddonfield. He is also involved with the Arlington (Va.) Academy of Hope, and recently returned from visiting the schools and clinics it serves in Uganda. Debra’s grandsons Gavin and Tanner Noll represent the family’s 5th generation growing up on Avalon beaches and her husband Chris has been coming to Avalon since 1956. Originally from Newfoundland, she moved to New Jersey in 1986 with her husband and their sons Jeremy and Craig. Noll serves on the executive board of Acenda Integrated Health and is a member of Impact100 of South Jersey, a group of women seeking to change lives with grants to local nonprofit organizations. Warren Faulk will continue to serve as the organization’s vice president, alongside treasurer John Bell and secretary Wayne Popowski.
