McMillan Park Photo Exhibition and Sale This Friday, July 29, 5-8 pm, at Gallery 2000 (1529 17th St. NW)

This Friday, July 29 from 5 to 8 p.m., please join us at Gallery 2000, 1529 17th St. NW (17th St. between P and Q Streets) for an exhibit of lovely photographs of McMillan Park.

Through the courtesy of our host, Gallery 2000, and several photographers who have donated their work, we hope you will come by to see and perhaps take home these lovely works for a suggested donation, a fundraiser to aid the Friends of McMillan Park legal fund. Our legal bills, accrued in the fight to stop the demolition of our park, are mounting and every donation penny helps.

EVEN IF YOU CANNOT JOIN US FRIDAY EVENING, PLEASE CONSIDER DONATING TO OUR LEGAL FUND TO HELP SAVE OUR PARK BY USING  OUR CROWDRISE ACCOUNT  HERE.


Coming Soon: FOIA Progress Report Later This Week
Later this week, we will share some news about a recent Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) case recently that was decided in our favor by the D.C. Court of Appeals. The good news is that the court sided with us. The bad news is that we had to go to court at all to seek documents from our government.


History Walking Tour Around McMillan Park This Fall
In the coming months, we will be organizing a tour around McMillan Park to share the history of the park led by a friend who has put together an extensive history of McMillan and the neighborhood of Washington around it. The tour will be about 1.5 hours in length and will involve a walk all around the park in return for a suggested donation to The Friends of McMillan Park legal fund.

The Friends of McMillan Park, Inc., is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. If you have any questions, please contact restoremcmillan@gmail.com or call 202.213.2690.
