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.

Our general meetings, which are open to the public, are regularly held on the third Tuesday of each month from October through May, at 7:30 pm, at the Chevy Chase Community Center (5601 Connecticut Avenue, NW), unless otherwise noted.

During our 2014-15 year, the CCCA held the following events:

September 10: Chevy Chase DC Day. Even in the rain, more than 400 people enjoyed free ice cream, face painting, balloon art, a moon ounce, and many other fun activities. They also had a chance to meet our business members to find out about what they do. The Metropolitan Police Department collected out-of-date prescription drugs so that they could be disposed of properly. Throughout businesses along Connecticut Avenue, children ran a scavenger race looking for pictures of Zorro the Dog. Upon completion of the race, they received goodie bags filled with fun toys, foods and other items donated by our business members. A good time was had by all.

In October: We sponsored two candidates forums for Attorney General and At-Large Council Member, respectively. On both occasions, we had huge crowds.

In November, We hosted a pre-school fair with more than ten schools participating.

In December: We held our first cookie decorating and ice cream social for the whole family. Several Council Members joined us along with the the Mayor-elect.

In February: We hosted local photography artist Francesca Scott for a showing of her recent photos of Cuba. Mayor Bowser was our special guest.

In March: We co-sponsored with Northwest Neighbors Village a program entitled City Of Age-Friendly Resources and Villages. We also co-sponsored with Sheperd Park Citizens Association a candidates forum for the Ward 4 Council seat. More than 300 people attended the forum.

In April: We learned about Creative Green Spaces around the city and how to create one in our community. This began a discussion about green roofs and water run-off prevention.

In May: Our Public Safety and Neighborhood Watch meeting concentrated on Fire Safety In The Home. Our newly-hired fire chief and assistant fire chiefs shared easy household fire safety tips as well as demonstrated the proper use of a fire extinguisher.

Throughout the year, our garden club met. We produced Monthly Newsletters as well as a weekly column in the Northwest Current.

Please consider getting more involved in our organization by coming to meetings, volunteering in one of our committees, and contributing to our our Newsletter or our weekly column.
