MLK Day of Service was a huge Success! Thank You!

Many thanks once again to the Kingman Park Residents, Local Organizations and Groups who came out for the MLK Day of Service: Kingman Park Community Cleanup. The MLK Day of Service was a huge success!

On a day when there were many activities competing for people’s time, we still had over 60 volunteers and collected over 60 bags of trash.

Special thanks to Mr. Thomas Day from  DPW who was key in getting equipment and supplies disbursed; The Giorgio Family for their monetary donation and 7-Eleven in Kingman Park for the refreshment donation.

Thanks to the Organization and Groups: Friends of Kingman Park (FOKP),  Soccer on the Hill (SOTH), Rosedale Citizen Alliance (RCA), Kingman Park Rosedale Garden (KPRG), Georgetown Law Students, Censeo Consulting Group, UDC Law Students, Rob Stephens:Local Church Sunday School Class, Greater Washington Area Chapter of Women Lawyers (GWAC) and Capital Riverside Youth Sports Park (CRYSP).

I look forward to seeing you all for our next community cleanup. Thanks again!

Warm Regards,

D.C. Residents To Get First Look at King Memorial

 The new Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial in West Potomac Park might not be officially dedicated until August 28, but District residents will get the chance to fix their gaze upon it earlier than that. According to details released during a press conference this morning, tens of thousands of tickets to a special D.C. Residents Day at the memorial on August 23 will be passed out to residents. The tickets will apparently be offered through the District’s website and at the King Library after August 18 — general admission tickets to the official unveiling ceremony were all spoken for weeks ago. (But if you want to look at it even sooner than that, you can always swing by West Potomac at 11 a.m. on the 22nd, which is when the cover will be lifted.) The city will play host to a weeklong celebration of King’s legacy, culminating with the official dedication; officials estimate that as many as 250,000 people will come to Washington for the celebration.
