Thank you. Thank you very much!

We had quite a nice turn out for the youth fundraiser on Thursday evening, despite the rain. So far we have raised $3,268.53 for kids here in Trinidad!!

Thank you to everyone that contributed. We could not have been successful without your contributions, no matter the amount, your invitations to friends and neighbors, and your social media postings.

TNA would also like to thank Jimmy Valentine’s Lonely Hearts Club, Mother Rucker’s Subs, and Crunk Cakes for providing food and drinks at the event and DJ Tony T for spinning tunes.

If you could not attend yesterday and would still like to contribute, there is a PayPal link set up for online donations. You can help push us over the $3,500 mark!

All funds will be used directly for purchase of materials for youth here in Trinidad. We will update you throughout the year as funds are expended.

Thank you again!

Dear Community Stakeholders,

You are invited to a public open house on Thursday, October 15, 2015 at 6:30pm at the Department of Public Works offices at 1831 Fenwick Street NE to discuss the proposed improvements for the Public Works Campus at West Virginia Avenue NE.
The District initiated the Public Works Campus Master Plan to explore the transformation of the Public Works Campus at West Virginia Avenue NE into a model of sustainable public works operations and a catalyst for community development. Over the past six months, the DC Office of Planning (OP) and the Department of General Services (DGS) have engaged Ward 5 residents and key stakeholders in Ivy City and Trinidad to create a blueprint for a new Public Works Campus with connections to the surrounding community. A variety of meetings were held during this time including a public open house, drop-in office hours, and a focus group, to collect community ideas and comments.

Come learn more about the plan’s recommendations and find out how the proposed project responded to public feedback received at previous meetings. Please share this invitation (and the attached flyer) with your neighbors and other people or groups who you think would be interested in attending.
