Last Thursday, Dec. 15th, the residents of the Armed Forces Retirement Home toured approximately 25 houses in the Park View and Petworth neighborhoods to judge the holiday decorations. This was the first year in what is hoped to be an annual event. Their guides were Advisory Neighborhood Commissioners Zach Hartman (ANC 4C09) and Kent Boese (ANC 1A08).
While it’s tough to compete with the house above (many of us will have our work cut out for us next year), there were many, many housing in the surrounding area that deserve honorable mention. While its impossible to list them all, I have posted a few of them after the jump. (more…)
I got a HUGE smile when I saw the holiday lights currently on display at 3404 Warder Street, NW. As you can see from the photo below, “Park View” has been incorporated into the design.
… leading me to a reminder that we are currently in the preparation stages of the first annual Park View/Petworth/AFRH holiday lights competition. The date for judging has been set for the evening of Thursday, December 15th.
Here’s something fun to kick off the Yuletide season.
The Park View, Petworth, and Armed Forces Retirement Home (AFRH) communities are in the early stages of organizing a holiday lights competition. Everyone involved thus far thinks this is a good opportunity to have the communities get to know each other better. It’s also an opportunity to have some good, old-fashioned competition.
As I mentioned, this event is still in the very early stages of organization with full details yet to be worked out. The general idea is to identify households that want to participate. Then, select a night that the AFRH seniors can view the decorations and vote on the decorations they like best.
As details are nailed down, I’ll post an update here. Of course, you can always send me an email as well.
So, who wants to participate?
