    Call box restoration

    CCCA, HCCDC and Ch/Art are working together to restore what many consider to be an eyesore into something we could be proud of and point to during history walks, art walks, visiting businesses, or just strolling in the neighborhood. We have nine call boxes in the immediate vicinity of the Connecticut Avenue business district. 

    Our plan is to review the structural integrity of the call boxes and restore the steel to good condition. We will then add art to them. Each box will be privately funded, and a plaque of the funders will be attached to the finished box. For information how to contribute, please write to president@chevychasecitizens.org

    10 am - NNV Walks - Brisk Walk in Rock Creek Park - Please note: we are walking on Thursday this week!
    We meet every Friday for a 45-60 minute walk. This is for all those walkers who say they want a faster walk! Sal will lead a faster and longer walk than we usually do. We’ll be walking either along a very pleasant trail or on the closed portion of Beach Drive (the group will decide). We expect to cover 3 or so miles in 45 to 60 minutes. Moderate paced walkers are welcome as well. We will have a second leader so we can accommodate those preferring a bit slower pace. To reach Picnic Area 6, take Military Rd east past the Nature Center exit and St. John's College High School. Turn right on Ross Drive, the first exit after the Nature Center exit, and angle left down the hill toward the stop sign at Beach Drive. Turn left on Beach Drive and you’ll see a parking area on the left. Do not follow Google Maps directions. They are wrong. There is a map on our website. Please RSVP and you will be notified if there is a change due to weather.

    Chevy Chase Seeks Master Gardeners for Tree Box Planning

    Friends of Chevy Chase Circle, Chevy Chase Citizens Association, and the Chevy Chase Main Street seek the expertise of DC’s Master Gardeners to help lead planning, management, and implementation of plantings in tree boxes along Connecticut Avenue. For years, the garden club of the CCCA led by Barbara Baldwin planted and maintained the tree boxes with funding from the CCCA. We even paid for a traveling water wagon so they could be watered as part of the maintenance. Recently tree boxes have not been managed by a single group or business. The three organizations seek to share resources and work alongside a Master Gardner to replant them. 

    The group seeks to meet with interested Master Gardeners to discuss what kinds of plantings would work best for the area, as well as help with community days to tend to the boxes. The three groups would like to connect their existing volunteer networks with the effort for workdays in the spring. 

    If you are interested, please reach out to Alex Krefetz at ccms@districtbridges.org or President@chevychasecitizens.org

    CCCA was awarded a $2000 grant by the Chevy Chase ANC 3/4G to migrate our website from an old platform to a new one. In the process, we will improve the appearance and functionality of the website. The effort should take about 6 weeks (fingers crossed). Once the work is done, we will announce the rollout to the entire community. Thank you to the ANC for its generous grant.
