CAG April Public Meeting- Oral History Panel Discussion
Join us on April 26th at the City Tavern Club to hear from our recently interviewed Georgetowners. The evening is an opportunity to come together as a community and share reflections on our past, enjoy stories of families and friends, and contemplate together the changes that are underway as we examine our future. The evening begins at 7 PM with a social ½ hour and is followed by presentations by our panel members before the floor is opened to Q and A from our audience.
The Oral History project has had an extremely active fall collecting and recording a “living“ history as seen through the eyes of Georgetown’s residents. Trained volunteers have interviewed people who have played significant roles in Georgetown over years. Thank you to residents Carey Rivers, Janet Kandel, Richard Christal, Hazel Denton, Samantha Herrell, Tom Birch, and Henry Courtney for recently interviewing several of our neighbors: Richard Hinds, long serving General Counsel of CAG; Neville Waters, a multi-generational Georgetowner, currently active in the restoration of the Mount Zion Cemetery which contains the old Methodist Burying Ground and the Female Union Band Society Graveyard; Gunther Stern, recently retired as directory of the Georgetown Ministry Center and named Georgetowner of the Year in appreciation of the enormous contribution he has made to our community; Ambassador Dayton Mak, a centenarian career diplomat and long-time resident of Georgetown; and Keith Lipert, well-known merchandizer of fashion jewelry and accessories.
