About
In 1909 residents of Chevy Chase DC established a citizens association to work together on matters of public interest. We've been doing it ever since. In addition to a monthly newsletter and this Web site, we sponsor or co-sponsor activities that foster community and improve the quality of life in our neighborhood and our city, and we regularly organize programs on the third Tuesday of each month from September through May to bring to the community subjects of importance.
 
During our 2012-13 year, our activities included sponsoring the annual Chevy Chase DC Day in the fall. In addition, we co-sponsored several candidates’ forums and a community shredding event. We also organized an exhibition of local artists, maintained the rain and butterfly gardens at the Chevy Chase Community Center, planted annuals on Connecticut Avenue, and participated in the Halloween Spooktacular. Our programs focused on topics like public safety, advancing sustainability, decluttering one’s home for simple living, and the District’s Community Court Initiative; and they featured speakers such as Ward 3 Councilmember Mary Cheh, Ward 4 Councilmember Muriel Bowser, and Executive Director of the Commission on the Arts and Humanities Lionell Thomas. [Click HERE for a complete list of our 2012-13 highlights.]

An important continuing project supported by CCCA is helping to revive the open spaces around the Chevy Chase Community Center and Library following the renovation of the Community Center. Other on-going activities include our Neighborhood Watch Program and our Garden Club.

We hope you will take the time to fill out a membership application. All of our activities and work are carried out by volunteers, so if you can help on an occasional basis, please be sure to check that box on the application. Membership dues are used primarily for communication expenses, the largest of which is the printing and mailing of the Chevy Chase Citizens Newsletter which, along with this Web site and a weekly column in the NW Current, endeavors to keep members up to date on matters of interest or concern in Chevy Chase, DC.
