From a press release:
“Sunday, September 24, in Southwest Washington, DC, will see the arrival of the eighth annual DC State Fair from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. At Waterfront Station, the public is invited to enjoy contests that crown the city’s best growers, crafters, and cooks; performances from local musicians and dance troupes; and more than 55 food, art, and craft vendors showcasing and selling their wares.
This daylong celebration of all things homegrown is unique among local fairs and festivals: it is run entirely by volunteers, is free to attend, and is held in different neighborhoods from year to year, making the Fair accessible to all DC residents and visitors. This year, the DC State Fair has partnered with the Southwest Business Improvement District to bring the event to Waterfront Station. (more…)

“Do you need a big orange kitty to conduct music in your heart? If so, Maestro is your boy! Maestro is a sweet 11-year-old tabby boy who has a raspy ‘old-man’ meow, loves to be brushed, and seeks affection whenever he’s awake. Even as the older, wiser feline, Maestro enjoys a good playtime session – he likes to know where his foster mom is anytime she’s home and will meow until he receives a response, followed by prancing over for attention. He would do best in a quiet home, without young children. Maestro is OK with other cats, he seems to prefer older/senior felines, but is scared of dogs, and is more interested in attention from his human(s) rather than other furry creatures. If you are interested in adding this affectionate gent to your home, please contact Four Paws at [email protected]”
“It’s Miller time! Miller is 7-year-old, 8-pound mix of Toy Manchester Terrier, Min Pin and Chihuahua (our best guess). Though he looks like a tough guy, Miller is actually extremely affectionate, snuggly and loves to be held. Miller gets along well with the other dogs (and turtles, at least the ceramic kind) in his foster home. If you are interested in adopting Miller, please email Linda at Doodle Dawgs Small Dog Rescue at [email protected]”
“These 4 adorable kittens hail from a shelter in West Virginia, but now are living large in DC and can’t wait to find their families! There’s one boy (Rorschach) and three girls (Domino, Phantom, and Pidge). They’re all friendly, cuddly, and very playful. Take them home and they’ll be purring in your arms in no time, then leap off of you to go play! If you’re interested in adopting them, you can learn more here.“
“I am writing to you about a Halloween costume drive. Park Morton has 50+ kids and have a Halloween party scheduled at the Salvation Army at the end of October. Many of the kids do not have Halloween costumes so we offered our support soliciting donations of new/gently used Halloween costumes for kids aged 1 to 12.”
