Welcome to October! If weather.com tells the truth, we should finally have sunshine and clear skies this weekend … just in time for some great events and outdoor tours with our non-profits:
Saturday, October 2
9:30-11:00 AM – Volunteer Orientation (For Love of Children): learn how you can be part of the mission and goals of For Love of Children through their tutoring program. New volunteers welcome!
10:00-11:00 AM – Heart of L’Arche Tour (L’Arche Greater Washington DC): meet core people, assistants, and board members, and hear what a family member has to say about having his or her child or sibling live at L’Arche. Remember to call in advance for directions!
10:00-noon – White Flint Walking Tour (Coalition for Smarter Growth): take a tour along the Pike, learn about new neighborhood developments, and speculate on ones still to come. Along the way, chat with CSG staff about community engagement and how you can get involved.
Sunday, October 3
3:00-6:00 PM – Origins: The Mass in B Minor (Washington Bach Consort): in the season opener, enjoy the nucleus of what was to become the Mass in B minor, a work Bach hoped would garner him an official title at Court. Music from his rivals and colleagues is included as well.
