St. George's on U Street Christmas Bazaar


I'm seeking your support of the Annual Christmas Bazaar being sponsored by the St. George's Episcopal Church Women. It will be held at the church, 2nd and U Streets, NW between the hours of 9 am and 5 pm on Saturday, December 1st.

I knitted an afghan which will be in the silent auction and I've prepared a variety of baked goods which will be for sale...perfect for gifts or to enjoy before the Christmas holiday.

There will be cooked food available and so you can plan to have lunch, an early dinner...or take it home for a later dinner.

It's the 1st Monday of the month so it must be BACA time

From Jim

Please be reminded that we will be meeting at Mount Sinai Baptist Church tonight from 7:00 p.m. until 9:00 p.m. To follow-up on our public safety/hate crime discussion of last month, Ms. Brandi King Garcia, Ward Five Community Prosecutor from the United States Attorney's Office, is coming to talk about their Nuisance Property Program. In addition, Mr. Alton Gadsen and Mr. Karl Millard are coming to talk about the Office of Unified Communications; specifically, how 911 and 311 calls are prioritized and dispatched to communities like ours. Ilyssa Parker, our neighbor and a member of the Board of Directors at the Perry School Community Service Center, will be given some time to talk about this valuable community resource. Further, and independently of her Perry School presentation, Ilyssa wants to share some information with us about the possible establishment of a dog park in the community.

Importantly, Officer Sean Babcock and Officer Danny McCullough will receive awards from the civic association in appreciation of their service to the community and, as usual, Alice Thompson (of the Mayor's Office of Community Relations and Services) and Ayanna Chase (of Council Member Harry Thomas, Jr.'s Office) will be permitted to share announcements relating to the work of their respective employers.

Hope to see you tonight!
