“Here are the cool things we have found in our place in Mt Pleasant. Clearly kids have lived here.


The soldier was buried and partially stuck to a concrete deck post footing. We think he is early WW2, or maybe between the wars.


The aircraft flash cards were behind baseboards. WW2. They are each about 2 inches across.


The marbles just keep showing up inside and in the yard.


The tasting cups were in the attic. One is inscribed twice, the other just once.”

From MPD:

“Dear PoPville,

Would you please post a reminder about tonight’s ANC meeting regarding the Mount Pleasant Farmers Market?

The information is from the ANC’s website and longtime ANC member, Jack McKay’s monthly newsletter:

Mount Pleasant ANC Meeting Tonight Re Future of Farmers Market

The future of the popular Mount Pleasant Farmer’s Market may be in trouble. In the past, the approval process was easy for the Farmers’ Market. The ANC Commissioners did not object to the weekly event, and sent an annual approval letter to the Market’s representative without requiring a sponsor to attend an ANC meeting to present a case for why it would not be a disturbance to the neighborhood.

However, this year, three commissioners – Arturo, Rosa, and Franko – objected to sending a letter of approval to the Market. These commissioners want the sponsor to come appear at the Tuesday, March 24 ANC meeting to answer questions about its operations and value to the neighborhood.

It’s a mistake for the ANC to even appear to be obstructing the Farmers’ Market. The Market has been running for 11 years and is one of the best events in the neighborhood.

If you want to show your support for the Farmers’ Market and other events/businesses that will improve Mount Pleasant please attend tonight’s ANC Meeting.

Tuesday, March 24
7:00pm, Mount Pleasant Library, 16th & Lamont Street NW
