Seriously, Start Watering Your Street Trees

The time is here! Start watering those street trees! GM warned you back in March that this was coming, hopefully you’re ready.

It might feel like it’s rained a lot. And it has. But it’s already going to be in the mid 90’s(!) this weekend. So you need to make sure every week that young trees have actually received at least 25 gallons of water a week. These heavy but brief rain showers we’re getting don’t actually drop that much water on us. So it’s good to supplement it with water from a hose.

Georgetown Time Machine: Sweet History

This week for Georgetown Time Machine, GM is back checking out postcards from Ebay. This particular postcard is from the later half of the 20th century, but it features a sweet slice of Georgetown history.

As described on the back, what you see above is the interior of Stohlman’s Confectionary, a legendary candy and ice cream shop that once stood at 1254 Wisconsin Ave.

Two Residents Announce ANC Candidacy

Two residents have announced their candidacy for two different open ANC seats this fall.

The first is Mimsy Lindner, who is running for the seat that Lisa Palmer currently holds. Here is her announcement, in part:

When I moved to Washington DC in 1984 to pursue a career in meeting planning, I never expected my
heart to land in Georgetown.     It is here that I met my husband, Rusty, and where we raised our 4
children.   I have lived in upper Georgetown (R Street), on Potomac Street (across from Booeymonger),
on 33 rd  Street (near Volta Park), and now at the Georgetown Waterfront.  Each area in Georgetown
offers something special, and each has a different personality. 
 
Over time I have learned that even a few blocks can make a big difference in the wants and needs of
neighbors and businesses.   Pulled together, these comprise the rich fabric that is Georgetown and are
why people love living here….

I am excited to listen to fellow Georgetowners, learn how they think we can make our neighborhood
better, and celebrate together everything that makes Georgetown such a special place to live and do
business. 
 
 We all need to remember why we choose to live in Georgetown.   I know that we can grow and improve
together while keeping the integrity of our historic village intact.
