Hyde-Addison Public Meeting Tomorrow Night

ANC Preview: Hyde Gym Edition

Tomorrow night, the Citizens Association of Georgetown will host a public meeting on the future of Hyde-Addison elementary school and the Duke Ellington School for the Arts. Mayor Bowser will be in attendance, and so with Councilmembers Jack Evans and David Grosso. The meeting will be at St. John’s (across from Hyde). The reception will start at 7:00, with the meeting beginning at 7:30.

It is difficult to overstate how important this meeting is for the near and long term future of Hyde-Addison. The mayor is apparently intent on the school using Meyer Elementary School as the swing space for the students for up to two years. DCPS’s own traffic studies showed that the trip from Hyde to Meyer could take up to 45 minutes, each way. Moreover, Hyde parents have toured Meyer and reported that it is in terrible shape and would require a full renovation itself before being an acceptable option.

Give Thanks By Giving Back

As you head out (or stay in town) for Thanksgiving, it’s important to take some time to think about those that have much less than us to be thankful for. And to turn those thoughts into action, please consider giving to Georgetown Ministry Center.

The shelter, based right in the heart of Georgetown, offer services and programs to the area’s homeless. And in cold winter nights, it offers a place to sleep, which can be a question of life or death.

Run by Gunther Stern for over 25 years now, Georgetown Ministry Center is an effective and efficient charity that makes people’s lives better right here in your own backyard.

If you’re a federal employee who participates in the Combined Federal Campaign, please add the center (CFC# 31661) to your list of charities. Then pass the gravy!
