Subject: BCA website, speakers, meetings, seniors event
Date Sent: March 4, 2017

 

We had a wonderful meeting on Thursday, featuring a number of committee reports and thoughtful and articulate remarks by our neighbor Carol Weil.  These meetings continue to be gratifying. I am writing to ask for your thoughts and assistance on three issues and to advise you of a Good Neighbor Committee luncheon event. 

  1. We are looking for help to manage our website and perform occasional tasks to keep it current.  Someone with a tech and website background who would view this as a community service would be ideal.  We can pay reasonable fees.  Any leads would be appreciated. 
  2. We are looking for a couple of volunteers to help with our quarterly meetings.  What is involved is obtaining refreshments such as lemonade and cookies)(you are reimbursed) and helping to set up our meeting room.   Not a big time commitment, only a couple of hours each quarter, but very important to making our meetings work.  Volunteer and help make BCA great.
  3. We are always looking ahead to identify people, preferably neighbors, who can speak at our meetings.   This is a vibrant community of accomplished people with diverse careers and interests.  Suggestions are appreciated.
  4. The BCA Good Neighbors Committee is sponsoring a lunch for BCA Seniors (use the AARP definition) on Thursday March 23, 2017 at 1 pm. The lunch will be held at the Irish Inn at Glen Echo (6119 Tulane Ave; 301-229-2050) in a private room that holds a maximum of 12.  You can order individually from a menu that includes soups and salads. Please let Edith Miles know if you want to come. 301-320-3299; ewmiles@comcast.net 

Best Wishes,
Ted Garrett,
BCA President
