CLICK HERE to read the June Capitol Hill Village News

Did you miss the Village Town Hall or the May 4 One-Level Living symposium? No worries—read about both in the June CHV News. Questions came up at the Town Hall about grants funding, how it works, and why it's important to CHV, so we have reprinted Molly's column on the topic. Learn about an opportunity to comment on dockless bikes and scooters (page 8), a Flag Day sing-along with the CHV Ukulele Group (page 10), and much more!

NOTE: The materials from the May 4 One-Level Living symposium can be found on this page in the lower right-hand corner.

Pedestrians, Dockless Bikes and Scooters Sharing Urban Space!

Join a June 12 discussion about the pro’s and con’s of dockless bikes and scooters as new ways to get around the city—and the issues they may raise for older adult pedestrians on sidewalks, at curb cuts, and when crossing streets. DDOT has already heard extensively from the dockless bike companies themselves and from many in the biking community but very little from
older adults.

The program will be from 2:00–3:30 p.m. at the Northeast Neighborhood Library, 330 Seventh St. NE. See page 8 of the June CHV News for more information.

NOTE — Location Change!

Stories of Our Lives: A Literary Series with Marie Guillory will be held at the Northeast Neighborhood Library, 330 7th St NE

Tuesday, May 29th from 2:00–3:00 pm

A monthly literary series showcasing the rich lives of CHV authors. We continue “Stories of our Lives” with CHV board member Ms. L. Marie Guillory, the author of, Born on the Kitchen Floor in Bois Mallet.

Lovey Marie Guillory was born in a small hamlet in rural Louisiana. Her hurried birth on the kitchen floor of her parents' farm house in Bois Mallet is the opening chapter of her life and her book, "Born on the Kitchen Floor in Bois Mallet." She says, "I couldn't wait to be born and I have been rushing all my life since then. I did slow down to write this first book, however. It took time to research the facts and retell the complex history of my family and pay tribute to the slave matriarch who made it possible for generations of Guillorys to be born in freedom rather than bondage."

We plan to discuss Born on the Kitchen Floor in Bois Mallet and also have a discussion with those who attend on their family story as well.
