Citizens Association of Georgetown: Dec. 13, 2017


Georgetown is known for its small row houses. (Brady Holt/The Current/January 2012)

Georgetown had a busy time last week with several social events. On Tuesday, Nancy Taylor Bubes hosted a fundraiser at her home for Mayor Muriel Bowser to support her re-election campaign. Ward 2 D.C. Council member Jack Evans introduced the mayor to those in attendance, and the mayor was in a good mood.

Wednesday was the Georgetown Business Improvement District’s holiday party at The Ritz-Carlton Georgetown, hosted by Joe Sternlieb and the rest of the Georgetown BID staff. Plenty of food and cocktails made the party a cheerful evening.

Last but not least was Thursday’s Georgetown Village holiday party at St. John’s Episcopal Church, with wonderful food and a raffle for members who were helpful to raise funds for the Georgetown Village. A good time was had by all, but I am happy that I got a break on Friday evening to recover from all the fun.

The parties are great, but we should also donate to the charities that help those who are in need of support on a daily basis. The Georgetown Ministry Center is one such group, and there are others that make Georgetown a welcoming place for those in need. That makes holidays cheerful throughout the year.
