Summer Social is Wednesday in the park!

Update: The Social is on!


Yes (Virginia) there will be a Maple Leaf celebration in the park on Wednesday evening!

The annual Maple Leaf Summer Social will be held TOMORROW Wednesday, July 27, in the Maple Leaf Park Family Terrace (the grassy area next to the playground equipment), from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.

If we’re counting correctly, it will be the 21st annual social.

No, it’s not clear what happens next. From the Maple Leaf Community Council’s Facebook page:

After the mayor’s announcement yesterday, a few Leaflettes have asked if there will still be a Maple Leaf Summer Social and the answer is yes, yes, YES! Things may be up in the air at the moment regarding the future of what our Community Council look like but one thing we can all be pretty sure of is that our neighborhood is strong, it will continue to be strong and do our best to represent our residents, and our community building activities and meetings WILL BE HAPPENING.

The future issue is what will happen with the community council, and the district councils, at least one of which most folks have never heard of.

There are 13 neighborhood councils, and this month Mayor Ed Murray decreed they must go.

This has not been without controversy.
