Last Christmas Card in Town is brought to you by the Friends of the White Whale Society!

From Congresswoman Norton’s office:
“Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton (D-DC) sent a letter requesting that the National Park Service (NPS) change the name of Melvin Hazen Park in the District of Columbia and work with the community to find a more suitable name. Hazen helped demolish the African American community in the D.C. neighborhood then known as Reno City. Norton noted in her letter that NPS appears to have the authority to change the name without congressional action because the name was designated administratively.
The full text of the letter is below. Read More

Surrounded by the excitement and movement of North Bethesda, the Linden Oak stands tall amidst the green of Rock Creek Regional Park. One of the tallest white oak trees in the country, and dating back to before America was a country (c. 1718), the Linden Oak is an enduring example of why North Bethesda is such a wonderful place to call home.
Three commemorative plaques have been placed in the Linden Oak’s honor. As it was being built, the Metro’s Red Line was curved around the area to prevent any disturbance of the tree. And just down the road, mere minutes from the Linden Oak’s hallowed roots and historic shade, are The Townes at Grosvenor Place.
This Executive Townhome community is ready to go down in history, but not for being old-fashioned. Much like one of the Grosvenor family’s most famous descendants, Alexander Graham Bell (yes, the Alexander Graham Bell), these townhomes are full of state-of-the-art features and forward-thinking design.
As soon as you step into your brand-new home at The Towns at Grosvenor Place, you’ll instantly feel a sense of space thanks to the 9′ ceilings on every level. Stride across the wide-plank hardwood flooring and into your dedicated home office — no more having to improvise a work-at-home cloffice (closet office) for you!
