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
An important continuing project supported by CCCA is helping to revive

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

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
