The Week Ahead…
by Larry Janezich
Precious little in terms of community activity is scheduled for the month. The ANCs, the Eastern Market Community Advisory Committee, and the Capitol Hill Restoration Society will not meet again until September. The Police Service Area Briefings (PSAs) will continue to meet during the month. Capitol Hill Corner will continue to post notices of those and the other few meetings of interest to the community, as well as the occasional photo essay.
Readers are also invited to check out a new feature on CHC – “Life on Capitol Hill” – photos and news items which are noteworthy, but about which not enough information is available to justify a longer post. CHC is still working out how best to alert readers to new postings in this section. Readers can access the page by clicking on the “Life on Capitol Hill” near the top of the home page.
