From the New Hill East listserv Thursday:

“I wanted to send thanks out to the amazing people who chased down a robber at Lincoln Park this afternoon.

A woman with a very young baby in a carrier had her wallet and phone snatched. The thief took off across the park, pursued by at least 2 people on foot. Confronted by another pedestrian outside P&C Market where the first pursuers caught up to him, he handed over the things he had stolen. He then tried to get away with the young woman he had originally been walking with. At that point a jogger with a dog accosted him and kept him company until the police arrived and took him into custody.

With all the recent assaults and fear in the air, and as someone who wasn’t quite sure what to do when a crime was playing out just across the street, it was inspiring to witness the fearless tenacity of some of our neighbors. Thank you!”

Help them take a trip to Virginia by supporting them here. Thanks to a reader for passing on:

“My name is James Perry and I am the director of Bands at Eastern Sr. High School in Washinton, DC. Let me be short and quick to the point, as a marching band we practice more than we could ever perform during a school year. In knowing, the accurate statement of “that practice makes perfect” describes us exactly. Our award-winning band is performance ready and the invites to events are pouring in for our group to display their showmanship. We are scheduled to travel to Virginia on May 16, 2015 for an upcoming performance and it will be our time to shine and represent DCPS as the good-will ambassadors of music education.

It takes time to craft our show-style but more importantly it requires finances of significant amounts to transport the band to various venues. We do an enormous amount of hosting and having fundraisers but our rising budget is too large and requires financial support from our fan base. It goes without saying that the allotted budget for an all-volunteer organization like ours is miniscule. Yet, that doesn’t stop the commitment of the many students, parents and band staff who report daily for instructions.

We ask so much from our students and they comply unconditionally by maintaining and in most instances far surpassing the required GPA of 2.0. It would give our students such an emotional boost and help us financially. If you could find it in your heart to donate $10.00-20.00 it would be greatly appreciated.

Ponder this thought, to march in the street is free but to make a marching band move it takes money.”
