“Calling All Prospective Volunteers!
Want to meet new friends and help make healthy food available to everyone in the Columbia Heights community? Then come join us as a volunteer for the 2014 Columbia Heights Community Marketplace season!
As we gear up for the opening of market season, we are looking for new volunteers to help us run the farmers market each Saturday. Market volunteers spend the majority of their time helping to administer our matching dollars program for recipients of SNAP (formerly known as food stamps), WIC, and other federal nutrition programs. The program allows us to match spending of federal nutrition programs up to $10, so that when a person spends $10 of their benefit, they receive an additional $10 to spend. This is beneficial both for the customer and for the vendors at the market. Additional volunteer responsibilities include set up and tear down, conducting customer surveys, helping vendors staff stalls, conducting community outreach, and other miscellaneous tasks. Volunteers are asked to commit to 1 or more 3 hour shifts, either 8 am-11 am or 11 am- 2 pm, per month. We are especially in need of *fluent* Spanish speaking volunteers.
If you have an additional specialized skill to offer that doesn’t fit in the above, such as fundraising or marketing, also let us know; there are many other ways to get involved.
Interested volunteers are invited to our pre-season training session on Sunday, April 6 at 5 pm at the Park Triangle Apartments Community Room (2nd Floor), 1375 Kenyon St NW.
This will include a general information session about the market as well as a brief orientation about volunteer duties, and will last around an hour. Snacks and drinks will be provided. If you are interested in attending, please send your RSVP to [email protected].”

Come solve a crime that took place in Takoma Park 130 years ago!
HouseMouse Books and Vintage is excited to announce the debut of Escape the Bookshop II, our new limited-run escape room experience. Escape the Bookshop II is a unique group puzzle game that is based on a real crime that took place in Takoma Park around 130 years ago. It is designed and created by HouseMouse to be played in our atmospheric little bookshop. This is not your typical corporate escape room and makes for a memorable evening out with friends or family!
Bookings are now open for game dates in January through April 2024. The game generally takes place Wednesday through Saturday at 8 PM but special arrangements can be made upon request. It is designed to be played by a group of 3 to 6 people (ages 16+) and lasts for one hour. No prior escape room experience is needed to enjoy the game.
Join us at Spirits & Spice DC Store as we embark on a spirited journey with the co-owner of the Mount Pleasant Club Whiskey.
