Village Members Enjoy a Variety of October Events
The Foggy Bottom West End Village members had the opportunity to participate in a variety of events during the month of October 2013 – the inaugural month for the Village.
On October 25th Villagers were treated to lecture by Saul Lilienstein on the musically rich middle period of Giuseppe Verdi, the most important of all Italian composers, as part of the Explore the Arts program at the Kennedy Center. Later that week a group gathered to enjoy good food and conversation at Vidalia’s. Members continue to take advantage of the Village lunch gatherings to meet and reconnect with neighbors and other Village members.
And on October 31, Board member Monroe Wright, lead a group discussion for Village members and Volunteers concerning the Mayor’s effort to make the District an Age Friendly City. Hosted at St. Stephens, participants answered a series of questions and made suggestions as to how our City can be friendlier to those who intend to stay in our neighborhood and who want to live independently. Suggestions ranged from better forms of transportation, to better use of public space, to better ways of communicating within the District.
Regardless of which category you fall under, the Foggy Bottom West End Village has something for you on its events calendar.
