Happy Birthday Brookland

On Saturday, September 29th over 100 Brooklanders, young and old, marched down 12th St. NE to celebrate the 125th anniversary of the neighborhood. Following the march the Brookland Neighborhood Civic Association hosted a community picnic at Turkey Thicket Recreation Center. As part of the picnic several pro-DC Statehood activities were hosted by the BNCA’s DC Statehood Committee which included a brief speech on the DC Statehood movement, an interactive game on DC Democratic History, and an arts & crafts area where children could make their own DC/New Columbian flags.

It was a great community day and event and the organizers should be thanked as should the wonderful people of Brookland.
