“Dear PoPville,

I was a close friend of Matt Shlonsky, the American University alum who was killed in the Shaw Metro shooting in August. Since that time, a group of Matt’s friends and I have established a Memorial Fund in his name with American University’s School of International Service. The Matt Shlonsky Memorial Fund was established within American University’s School of International Service this fall.

This event will be the second fundraiser for the Fund, and is scheduled for 7:00pm on February 11th at Town Hall in Glover Park [2340 Wisconsin Ave NW]. The goal is to raise an additional few thousand dollars, as well as spread awareness about the Fund and our goals. So far we have raised close to $25,000, which is half way to our goal of $50,000, at which point the Fund will exist in perpetuity.”

If you have any animal/pet photos you’d like to share please send an email to princeofpetworth(at)gmail(dot)com with ‘Animal Fix’ in the title and say the name of your pet and your neighborhood. Your photos will go into the queue (usually 2 weeks wait) and will be posted in the order I receive them. If you’ve already entered your pet and would like to do so again – that’s no problem – just space the entries out a bit. Please try to send horizontal photos 640×480 (medium size on your iphone) if possible. If you’re not using an iphone any size is fine.

From a press release:

“air Lynch Real Estate Partners (“Jair Lynch”) announced it entered into a 99-year ground lease with Howard University for 2601 16th Street, NW, a property adjacent to Meridian Hill Park. Jair Lynch intends to renovate the now- vacant dormitory into a boutique multifamily housing community. Jair Lynch acquired the rights in September 2015 from Howard University through a competitive process and closed the transaction on December 17, 2015.

The 2601 16th Street, NW building, constructed in 1942, was the site of the first government- owned and -operated hotel built exclusively to house young women who moved to the District during World War II to fill government jobs. Howard University operated it until 2013 as an off- campus dormitory known Meridian Hill Hall. (more…)
