CHV’S 2020 GALA: The Roaring Twenties
February 29—Save the Date!
Join the CHV Board, sponsors, and friends on Leap Day, Saturday, February 29, at St. Marks Church for a smashing good time as we Lindy Hop our way into the new year with Suffragists, Bathtub Gin, Flappers, Jazz Greats, and perhaps some of Al Capone’s men and a Great Gatsby or two. This event, once again, is lining up to outdo all others. Stay tuned for your invitation. If you want to volunteer to help or get more information contact

A large gathering of CHV members and friends, including Council Chair Phil Mendelson and Council Member Charles Allen, were on hand to say farewell to CHV Executive Director Molly Singer, who will soon be moving to Boston. Molly paid tribute to her staff and to the CHV Board, and, in turn, the CHV Ukulele Singers and the Hand Dancers performed in
recognition of the support the Village provides to affinity groups. Bruce Brennan emceed; Molly recited her own poem; the group serenaded her with “Farewell to Molly Singer,” to the
tune of “When Irish Eyes are Smiling,” and “The Trolly Song to Molly,” to the tune of Judy Garland’s song of a similar title. See pages 10-11.
