The FBA’s crowdfunding campaign to purchase Watching Post and keep it in the community permanently has raised more than $3,300 to date. We need to raise only $650 more to reach our $3,950 goal! We are SO close!
To help us reach our goal, a generous FBA Board member has offered to match every gift received beginning October 14, 2015, up to a maximum of $300. That means that your contribution of $1 will be worth $2.
You can be part of this innovative campaign. Everything you need to know to contribute using your credit card is available at www.razoo.com/watching-post.
Watching Post, a sculpture by Graham Caldwell in glass, steel, and hardware, has graced the light post at the southwest corner of 26th and I Streets NW. The piece was installed as part of the recent Arts In Foggy Bottom Sculpture Exhibit, Sculpted: Histories Revealed.
If you’d like to contribute with a check instead, or if you have any questions, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Foggy Bottom Association held its Annual Meeting on Tuesday, September 29, at the School Without Walls. Members enjoyed refreshments and conversation before launching into the evening’s business.
By acclimation, Robert DePriest, Vice President, and Catherine Pitcher, At Large Board Member, were re-elected. At Large Board Member Barbara Sverdrup Stone was elected Treasurer to fill the position vacated by Jessie Spressart MacDonald.
Members present discussed the issues they would like to see the FBA tackle in the coming year. They included upgrading the 26th Street Park, forming a neighborhood watch, improving Washington Circle (traffic, landscaping, usability), continuing to work with GW to reduce excessive noise, addressing traffic concerns at several neighborhood intersections, eradicating rats, fixing sidewalks, reducing noise from aircraft, and keeping the community clean. In addition, members enthusiastically supported suggestions for more social and entertainment activities, as well as events focused on Foggy Bottom’s history and architecture.
