Hillcrest Community Civic Association 20th Anniversary -- A Legacy of Inspired Civic Leadership

I originally created this piece as a PowerPoint presentation using images and records from the Hillcrest Historian, Gloria Logan. Mrs Logan is working on another record of Hillcrest and asked me about the original piece which was created and published in 2009. The PowerPoint presentation ran as attendees enjoyed lunch during the Anniversary Celebratory Luncheon. The video contains images of Hillcrest's leaders, city leaders and national leaders including, Eric Holder, Jessie Jackson, Tony Williams, Marion and Effy Barry, Alice Rivlin, Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton and many others. The Hillcrest Community is in Ward 7 in Washington DC, the Nation's Capitol.

Federation of Gay Games inspects DC sports venues & DC Gay Games 2022 Rally

The DC Gay Games Bid Committee for the 2022 Gay Games is hosting the Federation of Gay Games Site Inspection team 28 June - 1 July.  I serve as one of three, Bid Committee Co-Chairs.  The Bid Committee developed the plan to visit key venues, evaluate transportation and a few more social activities to introduce the Federation Officials to Washington DC and our ability, enthusiasm and commitment to host the best ever Gay Games.  This is what Day 1 in DC looked like.

We started with our bi-weekly DCGG2022 Bid Board Meeting.  David and Annette attended and participated freely in the discussion.  The meeting also allowed the Bid team to introduce themselves to FGG officials.  We finished the day with a large, diverse, energetic, enthusiastic and loud rally in support of bringing the Gay Games to Washington DC in 2022.  Our Mayor eloquently repeated her strong endorsement for the games.
