WATCH OUT FOR OUR YOUNGEST NEIGHBORS!
More and more our kids are growing and running and learning to ride bikes. All of our babies in strollers have grown into fast kids on feet and peddles. As much as we may try to keep them in our yards, they occassionally chase balls and small creatures into our neighborhood streets. As they learn to ride their bikes, they would appreciate if you would not block the sidewalks with your cars. Please drive slowly and carefully through the neighborhood to keep all our youngest safe. And if you have regular visitors who drive into the neighborhood, please remind them too. Thanks!

HAVE YOU SUBSCRIBED TO THE LISTSERV?
The listserv provides an easy way to email many of the neighbors, immediately and directly. It is a great way to discuss informal and timely issues with your neighbors. It complements our neighborhood email blast, and does not replace it. It is by invitation only, and only includes the neighbors. » request an invitation or ask Pati what this is all about.
The Book Club meetings are always held at the home of Ruth Gruenberg (check the directory for her address and phone number). Meetings are on the second Wednesday of each month at 8 pm. All are welcome.
MODERN CAPITAL’S WEBSITE
Many of us in the neighborhood enjoy Michael Shapiro’s website at http://moderncapitaldc.com/ about everything mid-century modern, including Charles Goodman homes. Not only is Michael well informed, but he is a huge fan of all Goodman neighborhoods. He has been invaluable when RCW homes go up for sale. So far he lists them at no charge. Lots of modern stores, other homes and good articles are also on the site. You might find just the piece of furniture or accessory you are looking for. Check it out.
