TREES FOR GEORGETOWN GARDEN PARTY ~ POSTPONED

In consideration of the rise in covid infections and the Mayor's current mask mandate, Trees for Georgetown, along with the hosts of our Garden Party, Tom Anderson and Marc Schappell, have decided to postpone the event.

Many thanks to all who have already bought tickets. We will be happy to save your reservations until the party has been rescheduled or refund the purchase price of your tickets. A member of the Trees for Georgetown Committee willl be contacting you in this regard. If you have any questions, please contact us at [email protected].

Trees benefit all people. They provide clean air, slow the rate of climate change, cool our community and serve as a source of food and habitat for wildlife. Your ongoing support means that Trees for Georgetown can continue to plant trees along the residential streets of our neighborhood. We are helping to build a greener and healthier tomorrow. That's the kind of future we deserve and your donations are an important part of making it a reality.

This is a great way to motive your little one to call a loved one and also provides an opportunity for you to bond with your child as you learn together. Keep conversations playful and imaginative Act out a role play with your child to practice maintaining conversations. A great way to do this is with art projects.

On this day in 1977, I met Stephen F. Thomas... and it was also the day Elvis Presley died. I was headed back to college in the morning and though I would have a beer for the road at my local haunt Winston's here in Georgetown. I was a serious athlete and did not drink in Season! When I went up to the second floor all of these (very pretty) women were crying and balling tears. A NBC camera crew was filming the whole scene and the one day future (now past) Congresswoman Marjorie Margolies was interviewing folks and asking them if they had heard that Elvis had died. I ordered a beer and sat down to watch the proceedings. The light on the TV camera went off and the very second that happened the crying girls stopped crying and started chatting with each other, one filing her nails, others joking and smiling! One would think what I had witnessed just seconds before had not ever happened. About 5 minutes later the light on the camera came back on and tears started flowing from the lot of them and one girl sobbed loudly, "The King is Dead" repeatedly! I kid you not! I laughed so hard that I almost fell off of my barstool. When I composed myself I asked to see the manager and was taken to the kitchen where I met the Stephen Thomas. He told me how he thought this whole thing up for publicity for the bar! We became friends and have had some serious adventures since that day...today so long ago!
Looking for a place to stop for cocktails but feeling unsafe during Covid? Outdoor Pop up Bar Boteco (found at 3251 Prospect st) is the perfect spot, enjoy a refreshing cocktail or a crispy Brazilian meal on a spacious patio , completely in adherence with phase 2 safety restrictions
So the folks who run "DUNBARTON HOUSE" will not let you post and you can not send them messages... not just me anyone. I have been telling them, showing them historical documents from Georgetown, the District, and from around the world that the name of the place is Dunbar. When in modern times there was a typo somewhere in the system Dumbarton was substituted for Dunbarton. There is no true historical fact relating to the Beall's, the Custis' or G. Washington that refers to it as Dumbar. I have invited these folks to look at source documents as apposed to transcripts or references in research. Clearly they do not care or have not the candle power to care! Only in the time many many Irish and Scottish labors flocked to Georgetown was anything or anyone referred to as DUMBartonShires and that was not a complement.
We will be hosting a Ward 2 Council Candidate Forum on Monday at 7 PM - please RSVP here:
At the Top of High Street or 32nd Street in the day, Now Wisconsin Avenue, we had a bar inside the place where the horses were re-hitched up to the trolley cars. In the day horses could not pull the cars to the top so a cable system was developed by Georgetown Traction to pull the cars to the top of the hill. The bell in the last picture has been in our family as it was presented to Terrance Sellers upon retirement from the company as he was at the time chief conductor. Copperthite and sellers have married each other at least 3 times over the past 100 plus years with my mom Anita Robinson Copperthite Sellers is who passed along the bell to me.
House built by Johanna O'Neil COpperthite. Car built by porsche!
Two homes in the background were the homes of the first two mayors of Georgetown. Originally restored by Henry Copperthite! The car restored by me!😜
Long before Uber plied the streets of Georgetown. Henry Copperthite's prized trotting "Myron C" and pacing horse. Beall Street where the Hazel Stables use to be!
Please pass along to your security detail my sincere thanks for turning off their blinking lights blasting in my living room this evening after only 10 minutes. Been dealing with this annoying issue for 15 years including multiple personal requests where I had to walk over and ask the CAG representative to stop disturbing my household peace. This evening a few frantic hand waving motions seemed to work, so kudos to you infuriating fake security guard selling fear for so many years. 34th and Prospect if you want to know.
The Hood 4 our family since 1885!
