“A DC community is harnessing community assets to repurpose a currently vacant building and create a safe, fun, space for neighbors to connect, engage and celebrate their neighborhood. The Georgia Ave Community Development Task Force and the Georgia Ave and Lamont Public Safety Task Force will host the 1st Annual Georgia Ave Winter Fest: a neighborhood-wide demonstration of the positive aspects of the Georgia Ave corridor, such as the strong community spirit and activism and the exciting and engaged local businesses in the community.
The 1st Georgia Ave Winter Fest takes place from 11:00am to 4:00pm on December 5th at 3400 Georgia Avenue NW. The event is free and all are welcome. Attendees can:
– See performers ranging from salsa dancing to boxing demos, from school choirs and cheerleading to an Opera singer formerly of Park Morton public housing and the DC-based Eminence Band;
– Purchase Christmas trees from Annie’s Ace Hardware with 20% of proceeds going towards the neighborhood;
– Engage in arts and craft activities for children;
– Learn more about city services ranging from youth programming to addiction
– Sample and purchase foods from local restaurants like long-time Georgia Ave
Morgan’s Seafood, EatsPlace restaurant incubator, 11th Street favorite Kangaroo
Boxing Club, and newcomers Heat Da Spot and Colony Club;
– Peruse local artist wares for the holidays;
– View local student’s artwork made specifically or the event;
– Visit DC firefighters and see a fire truck up close and personal;
– Discover additional ways to get involved in the community. (more…)
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.

Sadly Harper lost her battle to cancer last Tuesday and I created the attached video in an effort to keep her spirit alive and prove just how awesome rescue pups are. She made me a better human, that is for sure. I hope this sweet little video can convince others to rescue a pup in the future.”

One more request if I may of the community on behalf of the family. Could I ask of the PoPville community, especially those in the legal community or familiar with lawyers in the DC metro, any recommendations for the best lawyer in DC to litigate a hit and run crash? Thanks!”
“Development is speeding along in DC and despite the risk of sounding like a NIMBY, I’d love to hear what type of impact others have had with new developments abutting their properties. I’ve just read of plans for a seven story 250 – 300 unit building directly behind my home and I do not know what all I should expect. What should I be afraid of other than the obvious loss of privacy in my backyard, increased foot traffic, perhaps decreased street parking not to mention the construction noise. ”
