The Foggy Bottom West End Village (FBWEV) was highlighted in a video segment featured on China Central Television (CCTV) – America. The segment focused on the growing number of seniors in the United States and how some organizations, like Foggy Bottom West End Village, are assisting their members in aging in their own homes and communities.
Kate Fisher, a video journalist with Feature Story News, sought out a Village group and contacted FBWEV because they regularly meet for coffee on Tuesdays at Bread and Chocolate the restaurant at 23rd and M Streets, NW. She explained that she was interested in creating a segment on villages for CCTV America. A rich discussion ensued with Village Executive Director, Bob McDonald, Village Membership Chair, Lorna Grenadier, and several Village members.
A video shoot was then arranged for a Village outing at the Arboretum at American University. The resulting video can be viewed on the CCTV America Website
CCTV America is the American division of CCTV News, the English-language news channel run by Chinese state broadcaster, China Central Television.
