Thank you from North Capitol Main Street!

See this message from Pat Mitchell, President, North Capitol Main Street:

On behalf of the Board of Directors and all the wonderful volunteers of NCMS, Thank You for the tremendous turn-out at the 3rd Annual 2011 NCMS Art+Music Walk.

Each year, we learn something new about ourselves, about the event itself, about you as residents, about our businesses and about this great community of neighborhoods -- Bloomingdale, Eckington and Truxton Circle in Shaw. And this year is no exception.

I believe it's fair to say this year, we had the biggest turn-out ever. (at least in one place at one time) And we could not have done any of this without the support of Department of Small and Local Business Development, Pinkline Project and Rustik Tavern, and the participation of all the businesses in the North Capitol Main Street service area.

It goes without saying, the work of North Capitol Main Street is a labor of love (or at least self-interest) because all of its volunteers and board members -- Tom, Scott, Roxanne, Juli, Geovani, Sara, Diton, and Nathaniel -- are residents and business owners in the community. And so nothing is more gratifying than to see this community come together in such a positive and fun way. Were it not for the rain, I believe we'd still be partying on T Street.

And speaking of T Street NW -- a very special thank you goes out to the generous and gracious Residents of T Street NW for allowing the closure of your street for this event. We (the community) owe you a debt of gratitude. Finally, the members of the Clean Team, who altered their schedules to make sure the neighborhood was left clean, really do rock!! These guys do a tremendous job of keeping the trash off the streets and garbage removed, so please be sure to show them your appreciation whenever the spirit hits you. Thank you all.

Pat Mitchell
