Flower Power Awards


There will be a reception that acknowledges those residents who were
nominated for an award during the Bates Area Civic Association's
Power 2004" beautification campaign. The reception will take place on
Thursday, September 2, 2004 at Ella's Coffee and Fine Art, 1506 North
Capitol Street, N.W., from 6:30 p.m. until 8:30 p.m.

It was decided that we would not tax the very limited funds in the BACA
treasury to produce this event; hence, we have sought in-kind
that we will use as prizes for the honorees. Therefore, BACA members
attend are being asked for a $7.00 donation to help defray the costs of
refreshments for the evening.

To RSVP, please contact MaryAnn Wilmer at (202) 328-0389. Hope to see
