Greater Washington Partnership: Return to Work Survey
Kathy Didden illuminating "Little George" at the 13th Annual Tree Lighting in 2019
Capitol Hill BID has announced the virtual celebration of our neighborhood traditions: the 14th Annual Tree Lighting and 7th Annual Menorah Lighting. Keeping everyone's health and safety in mind during this unprecedented time, Capitol Hill BID has arranged for both events to be captured on video without an audience to be later released online for the community to enjoy.
The virtual Tree Lighting will be available online Friday, December 4th and the Menorah Lighting will be available the first night of Hanukkah, Thursday, December 10th. The public is asked to come view the holiday decorations and the Menorah in the newly renovated Parcel One of Eastern Market Metro Plaza (Pennsylvania Ave SE and 8th St SE) safely and socially distanced on their own time.
Kathy Didden, wife of the late founding BID President George Didden, has proudly flipped the switch to light the tree every year since 2007 and will continue to take part in the tradition this year. Rabbi Hannah, of co-sponsor Hill Havurah, will bless the Menorah in celebration of the Festival of Lights and the Pascal family will light the Menorah in honor of past Chairman of the Board and Community Leader, Paul L. Pascal, Esq.
The District Department of Transportation (DDOT) is conducting a survey for restaurants, with and without outdoor dining, to evaluate the Streatery Program.
Responses will help DDOT evaluate the program and determine whether it can be adapted to help businesses within the District of Columbia after the public health emergency. The survey should take approximately 10 minutes to complete. The more participation, the better look they will have at creating lasting change in public space as part of this program.
Please take a moment to answer this brief survey about your organization’s reopening plans and help create a stronger, safer, more informed Capital Region as we work together to overcome the COVID-19 public health crisis.
