Help Us Build A Centennial Time Capsule!

Drop off photos, stories, newspaper articles, etc., that reflect the spirit of the present day. Make sure to include your name, phone number, or email address. Questions? Call 301-654-7144 or email us at townoffice@townofchevychase.org.



Town Bake Off -- Breads!
Sunday, March 10, 3-4:30 pm,. Town Hall 

 Attention bakers and eaters!  Join us at the 7th Annual Town of Chevy Chase Bake-Off. This bake-off is all about BREAD -- either dessert loaves or any other type of bread.  One judge is Christ Sokambi, baker of La Bohemia Bakery, who sells his delicious wares at the Farm Women’s Market.  The second judge is to be determined.  Bakers should bring 1 large loaf or 2 small loaves of the same recipe. There will be prizes for the best breads.  Eaters will sample the delicious entries and vote for the People’s Choice Award. Whether you are a baker or an eater, you need to RSVP to the Town Office at 301-654-7144 or townoffice@townofchevychase.org.


Discussion and Desserts with Marc Howard 
Thursday, March 14, 7 p.m., Town Hall 

Professor Marc Howard of Georgetown University has graciously agreed to speak on the criminal justice system & prison reform.  He is one of the nation's leading authorities on this issue.  Director of the Prisons & Justice Initiative at GU, Marc has taught for years at the maximum-security Jessup Correctional Institution. He created a groundbreaking undergraduate course called Prison Reform Project, which he recently co-taught with his childhood friend and exoneree Marty Tankleff.  Their students worked to demonstrate the innocence of four likely wrongfully-convicted men.  On September 20, 2018, Valentino Dixon walked out of prison after 27 years, in part thanks to the new discoveries made by the Georgetown students.  Wine and desserts will be served.  RSVP to the Town Office at 301-654-7144 or townoffice@townofchevychase.org
