The older I get, the more fun I think we should enjoy! This month, we have created a few events to increase our fun.

Village Ice Cream Social

Wednesday, August 23

2:00 PM to 4:00 PM

We're having our first ice cream social. Generously sponsored by Sandy Rubin and hosted by Mimi Cutler. We'll have everything to make ice cream sundaes, so if you have a special request, such as sugar-free or lactose-free ice cream or even a favorite flavor, please let us know.

We will also have some games, one of which will involve guessing the identity of your baby pictures! So, please go through those photo albums and bring your favorite photo! Check out a favorite of mine, with my dear mother, is below!

We'll have a few prizes, including gift certificates to Byblos Deli and the Cleveland Park gift shop, Transcendence, Perfection & Bliss near the Uptown.

Remember to share your favorite flavor by calling the office at 202-615-5853 or by sending an email to

To reserve your place, members and volunteers should register here.

Members Plus can use our transportation service to attend events

If your Village membership is Members Plus (the level of membership which provides volunteer services, such as rides) you can sign up for these events and request a ride. The Village will arrange transportation for Members Plus to social events. Be sure to let us know that you need a ride at the time of registration (and at least three days before the event) so that we can find a volunteer.

It's easy to enjoy the benefits of Village membership. If you're not yet a member, you can find information about our categories of membership and cost of dues on our website. Social members can sign up and pay immediately on our website too!

The Village offers a free memberships for those that wish to join but have limited means. To learn if you're eligible call or email the office to arrange for a confidential discussion.

I hope to see you at an upcoming event and remember that we're taking ice cream requests!

Frank Finamore is Executive Director of the Village
