You may have heard that our DC Foundation owns a double cemetery plot in Parklawn Cemetery.  This was left to the Foundation by a former member who moved out of town and no longer had a need for the plot.  The Foundation Board has decided that it is appropriate to sell the plots so that the proceeds can be used for charitable purposes. 

Check out our new video that highlights our club's service projects, friendships and programs.


We would like to wish a very happy birthday to members celebrating birthdays this week...
