BMAV members join us for an hour of trivia on Zoom. Everyone comes with 3 - 4 trivia questions (and answers) they think may stump other guests. Not too hard though! There are ideas for questions online in the world of sports, history, anything that interests you. For example, What is the largest mammal in the world? Which actor played the first James Bond? Who invented the airplane?

If you can't think of questions, come anyway! Host Chris Palmer will have extra questions in his back pocket. Also bring paper to write your answers on and a drink if you'd like. We'll keep score and declare a winner for the night. It's a lot of fun

Friend Ralph Blessing will take us on tours of Cambodia, China and Thailand, trips that originated due to his wife's Peace Corps service in the latter.

We will view photos from two trips Ralph has made to the region, the first in 2001 with his wife and their two children so she could visit her old haunts in Thailand where she was a Peace Corps volunteer in the late 1970's. The second, more than 10 years later and also connected to Peace Corps, was to join in celebrating the 50th anniversary of the program's presence in that country. In addition, that trip provided the opportunity for a tour of China as well as a brief visit to Cambodia.

Chevy Chase At Home invites neighbors to enjoy the many benefits of dance and song right from home—and in your favorite chair. People at all levels of physical abilities are able to take advantage of the opportunity to sing, move, and create in a warm and supportive interactive environment. Music is drawn from classic Broadway shows and popular music that people know and love.

Co-teacher Roy Barber is at the keyboard and leads participants in several songs during each one-hour class, all with lyrics displayed on screen. Easy-to-do movement sequences are inspired by a variety of dance forms and focus on gently engaging all parts of the body.

The movement material is based on the Dance for PD, a program developed by Mark Morris Dance Group and the Brooklyn Parkinson Group. Co-teacher Robert Sacheli is a teaching artist in the program.

No dance or musical experience is required. The class is donation-based, but the first session is free. Sponsored by Chevy Chase At Home.

Join Silver Spring Village as we commemorate the centennial of Glen Echo Park's crown jewel, the Dentzel Carousel, with this talk about its history. As we uncover the last 100 years, we will learn of the civil rights protests to integrate the segregated Glen Echo Amusement Park that began with a sit-in on the carousel in 1960. We will learn of the park's heyday during the streetcar era, its closing in the '60s, and the efforts to save the carousel and bring the park into the National Park system in the '70s. We will also see pictures of the beautiful carousel animals carved by William Dentzel's carousel company, now all carefully restored.

Suzanne Brennan Firstenberg is a visual artist who has demonstrated the power of art to touch hundreds of thousands of lives. In Fall of 2020, images of her "In America: How could this happen…" art installation graced over six hundred news articles on six continents, making visible the COVID-19 pandemic’s cost in American lives. Her art created a national space for mourning.

In September 2021, Firstenberg recreated this art installation, newly named "In America: Remember," on the National Mall. For seventeen days, over 650,000 white flags fluttered near the Washington Monument. To ensure access for all, Firstenberg partnered with Esri, Inc, the global leader in geographic information systems, to present the art concurrently in the digital sphere.

Firstenberg believes art has incredible power to educate, inspire, and change the lens through which viewers understand social issues. Interviews, research, and reading ground her work on topics that include gun violence, Native Americans, homelessness, and political partisanship. The underlying theme is upholding individual dignity, a value honed through her twenty-five years of hospice volunteering.

In this Zoom presentation, Firstenberg will talk with us about why and how she created the "In America" art installations. Firstenberg believes in times like ours, when words fall on unlistening ears, art is not an elective, but an imperative. Join us to view photos of her art and learn how she became an artist and is inspired.

Join American University's Women & Politics Institute for a virtual conversation with WPI Executive Director Betsy Fischer Martin and award-winning journalist Kati Marton, author of the book, The Chancellor: The Remarkable Odyssey of Angela Merkel. Heralded as the “definitive biography of German Chancellor Angela Merkel," Marton's new book provides unique detail into "remarkable rise and political brilliance of the most powerful—and elusive—woman in the world.”

Based on “rigorous research” and “unparalleled empathy,” Kati Marton explores how Angela Merkel overcame liabilities as a “triple outsider”— a scientist, a woman, and an East German—to ascend to the chancellery. Ultimately, Marton reveals how Merkel has “redefined the image of a female leader” and portrays a woman who has “survived extraordinary challenges to transform her own country and return it to the global stage.”

"Finding Meaning and Success: Living a Fulfilled and Productive Life" with Chris Palmer.
Author, speaker, wildlife filmmaker, grandfather, and retired professor Chris Palmer will give an entertaining presentation on how to improve your life. He serves on the Board of Montgomery Hospice, is writing a book on aging, death, and dying, is a hospice volunteer, and runs an “aging well” group for the Bethesda Metro Area Village. During his filmmaking career, he swam with dolphins and whales, came face-to-face with sharks and Kodiak bears, camped with wolf packs, and waded hip-deep through Everglade swamps. Inspired by his new book, Finding Meaning and Success: Living a Fulfilled and Productive Life, he will explore the goals, strategies, and tactics necessary to live a successful, fulfilled, and productive life. He will discuss what matters, consider how we find purpose and meaning, and examine how we can take better care of ourselves. The idea is to actively design our lives rather than drift forward, reacting to what happens to us. It is healthy to look at the person we have become and ask if this is who we want to be. We want to behave in ways true to our most honorable, generous, and best selves.

In today's presentation, Pete will talk about current county initiatives and answer questions. If you have questions about your local government services and haven't known who to ask, now is your chance!
