According to the little yellow flyer on my fence:
The Bates Area Civic Association is planning an Oktoberfest for Saturday October 30th. Their current ideas include a:
Bratwurst and Sauerkraut
Health and Wellness Table
If you are interested in volunteering or renting space for the flea market contact the planning committee at oktoberfest AT arachnophile dot com.
This Monday Oct 4 @ Mt. Sinai Baptist Church, 7pm, in the basement. Go and maybe ask Jim Berry what’s up with 3rd Street.
Got this late yesterday so the event has passed, but it is a notable one:
Dear Advisory Neighborhood Commissioner:
I am sure you’ve read in the papers that the return of baseball is imminent. The Mayor is making the official announcement at the City Museum today, (September 29) at 4:00 pm. I wanted to make sure you received a notice regarding this and officially invited. Your constituents are also invited to this important event.
It’s time to celebrate! Major League Baseball returns to the District after a 33 year absence and the stadium, coupled with the new DC United Stadium, promises to spur development along the Anacostia River.
Hope to see you there!
From our wonderful leader Jim Berry:

It is time to recycle those old computers and other electronics in the
District of Columbia. Currently the District only recycles these
“household hazardous materials” twice a year.

these electronics properly.
