Do you want to build a community that values people of all ages? Are you interested in helping your older neighbors? Would you like to donate your time or expertise to help a local nonprofit? If so, become a volunteer for Bethesda Metro Area Village. BMAV is a volunteer-driven local nonprofit dedicated to providing services and community support that allow people to remain in their homes as they age. In this orientation, Executive Director Elizabeth Haile will go over the services offered (rides, deliveries, friendly visits, in-home assistance with technology or light repairs, vacation checks, snow shoveling and garbage can placement), how requests are made and filled, and answer questions about common scenarios. Open to all friends and neighbors interested in learning about the village and the services our volunteers provide. RSVP and application required. Zoom link will be sent to registrants. Current volunteers who would like a refresher are also welcome. Check out our website or contact director@bmavillage.org for more information.

Our evenings out are often noisy and fun. This time we PROMISE a quiet night - at the well regarded (but expensive) Bistro Provence, where one of DC‘s great chefs, Yannick Cam, presides.

NOTE: We are now full for this event, but let us know if you want to come - we can start a waiting list.

Once a month we pick a restaurant and descend en masse – partly for a fun meal out, partly to sample new places (or new choices from old places!), and partly to get to know each other better.

We start early to go easy on the restaurant and get a little extra attention before the place fills up. Come at 5:30 for a Happy Half-Hour! We’ll have name tags for all. RSVP is required to co-lead Janet Dante, the earlier the better.

Alleyways in Washington, DC, have always been a fundamental part of the city‘s life and economy. Deliberately hidden from public view by the capital‘s early planners, DC‘s alleys were created to provide access to stables, carriage houses, and other utility buildings. But as the city grew and property values rose, the nature of some alleys and their buildings changed, resulting in a parallel world of residential, manufacturing, and artistic spaces. Kim Prothro Williams reveals this world in a fascinating and richly illustrated history. In the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, the city‘s inhabited alleys were often unsanitary spaces that were home to its poorest residents. These conditions spurred Progressive Era campaigns to demolish alley dwellings, which in turn led to the displacement of minority and disadvantaged communities. Today, many remaining alleyways, with their intimately scaled buildings, have been transformed into vibrant commercial and residential spaces. Yet this new wave of development raises questions about how spaces that were once reserved for the city‘s poorest residents now cater to the wealthy. This book is a must-have for anyone with an interest in Washington, social history, architecture, or historical preservation. Kim Prothro Williams is an architectural historian and National Register coordinator at the DC Historic Preservation Office. She is the author of several books about historic places and communities, including, most recently, Lost Farms and Estates of Washington, DC (2018).
