Tonight I attended my third party of the day, visiting the Greenland Hill’s holiday party in Glencoe Park. M Streets residents were treated to cookies, hot chocolate, and carriage rides around the neighborhood. St. Nick even made an appearance!
Neighbors rode around the neighborhood in horse-drawn carriages to view the Christmas lights and decoration. (Paul and I spent a good bit of time earlier this week hanging lights, with the help of our wonderful neighbor Tony and his friend Richard.)
Tonight the board of the Greenland Hills Neighborhood Association bid bon voyage to two of our leaders, Lynn and Bob Parker, who are moving to North Carolina. Lynn and Bob have worked so hard to improve our neighborhood, from organizing neighborhood events to handing out our newsletter to getting our old-fashioned lampposts repainted.
Lynn was instrumental in restarting our neighborhood association several years ago, and then shepherded it through its first years. I had the privilege of serving on the GHNA board with Lynn, and I can tell you first-hand that our neighborhood will miss a terrific, energetic, and dependable leader.
Good luck in North Carolina!
