From Jim: Honoring Dr. Swygert


I encourage you to join me at this event in honor of the above-referenced persons. As you may know, Dr. Swygert has been the president of Howard University for many years and former Senator Pendleton was a past chairperson of ANC 5C, a past chairperson of the Ward Five Democrats, a senior administrator in the DC Public Schools, and an overall treasure in the Ward Five community.

As indicated below, the affair is taking place this coming Sunday at 3:00 p.m. The BACA is one of the community co-sponsors and it may interest you to know that the activity is free of charge.

Feel free to share this information with others in our community and be sure to RSVP today!
