If you’ve been by the canal recently, you know that it finally wet again. The massive work on Lock 3 has been substantially completed, and the long dry stretch was finally fed by the river again. It’s such a great site to see the cascading falls once more.
But getting one lock fixed wasn’t the only thing needed by this national treasure. Plenty of work remains ahead to shore up the canal and make sure it will last at least another 168 years.
And tonight the Citizens Association of Georgetown is hosting a meeting to hear from Georgetown Heritage (the non-profit established to restore the canal) about what they’ve accomplished so far and what else is in store. Here are the details:
When: Thursday, November 29th
Where: Pinstripes, 1064 Wisconsin Avenue NW
Time: 7:00pm – 7:30pm – Reception with Refreshments
