And like all giants on earth, this creates interesting challenges and opportunities as demonstrated by its role in history, culture, and regional economics. Learn the Bay’s secrets, dreams, and hopes for the future from Bill Matuszeski, former director of the Chesapeake Bay Program.

Springtime brings recognition from the Capitol Hill Community Foundation of its Community Achievement awardees for 2016. Among the honorees at the April 26 dinner was the Capitol Hill Village, recipient of the $10,000 Arnold B. Keller Award, which recognizes projects that make a significant and ongoing contribution to the life of the community.
The Foundation cited CHV for its increasingly important role in assisting older residents, enabling them to stay in their homes on Capitol Hill and helping to ensure that residents can continue to be a part of the Capitol Hill community long past retirement age.
The award will help fund the Village’s financial assistance program, providing full memberships on a sliding scale to low-income seniors. The award also includes commissioning of a four-minute video that CHV can use for promotional activities.
One of the group’s activities, “Outings—Mostly for Guys,” will be occasional trips to sites and events of special interest to men—but women are welcomed as well! These might include outings that retrace Lee’s retreat from Richmond to Appomattox or a trip to the Hershey Car Show.
