Friends of Rose Park invite community support

Our beloved Rose Park – which has filled our community with charming young couples who have chosen to live in Georgetown so their kiddies could enjoy playing in our wonderful village, and especially in the Park – needs care and improvements. With its tennis courts, ball field, tot lot, and playgrounds, the Park has become a magnet for the delightful young families now living in Georgetown.

Dr. Jim D'Orta has graciously agreed to allow us to have this year's fundraiser at his home, which is full of Washington history as it is the former home of Pamela Harriman. When Pamela and Averill Harriman were living here, their active social and political life needed more space than one house gave, and they added the next door house, which will be the lovely setting for our party. This year's benefit, on Thursday Oct. 6 from 6:30 to 8:30 pm, will be catered by Café Milano.

Come at 6:30 to see this fascinating house, join David Dunning, Rose Park President and the Board, and see all your friends.

I am planning to be there, dear readers, and hope to see you. Pam Moore will offer new plans to update our beloved Rose Park, with roses added, too! Don’t miss this fun event and a chance to support our neighborhood treasure. Contributions of $150. to attend the event should be made payable to "Friends of Rose Park." Thank you!
