–Historic Mount Pleasant‘s Spring Meeting is at 2 pm, Saturday, May 4, at The Rosemount Center, 2000 Rosemount Avenue.  HMP Board will be available at the meeting to discuss our 2018 Annual Report and to answer questions about any issue or concern you may have about living in an historic district.  More information about our activities and historic district standards is available on our website www.historicmountpleasant.org.

Also, we will have a presentation on local history.  Drawing from her latest book on “Lost Farms and Estates of Washington, D.C.,” Kim Williams of the D.C. Historic Preservation Office will show how our neighborhood evolved within the broader patterns of development of the Nation’s Capital – from estates (such as Ingleside, whose mansion is now the main building of Stoddard Baptist Home) through the civil war (Union soldiers occupied the house that once stood in the 3300 block of Mount Pleasant Street) to an early “streetcar suburb.”  The “42” line of the streetcar gave way to the “42” line of the bus in the late 1960’s.

The meeting is open to the public.  We invite our Mount Pleasant neighbors to join us for our meeting and to visit the Rosemount Center.  We welcome comments and questions about HMP or historic preservation in general on our website at any time.  If you are not a member of HMP, please consider joining, particularly if you are new to the neighborhood.   We look forward to hearing from you.

–Rosemount Center’s Annual Charity Golf Tournament on May 6 – Please Join Us!  Come play with us at the scenic *Queenstown Harbor Golf Course* in Queenstown, Maryland.  8:30 am Registration/10:00 am Shotgun start.  All proceeds*benefit Rosemount’s children and families.  Not a golfer?  We welcome your sponsorship and your support!  Dear Neighbors, Rosemount Center’s mission is to prepare children and families for their future by providing comprehensive early childhood education and family support programs in a bilingual multicultural setting.  Tuition and support does not cover its annual expenses.  Fundraised income fills the gap. The Annual Golf Tournament is one way to help and is always a lot of fun.  Please be encouraged to join us! Questions about Rosemount Center are welcome.  –Marcia Rock, MPH, Program Operations Specialist  rockmarcian@gmail.com  Rosemount Center, 2000 Rosemount Ave. 202-265-9885 ext. 138

–Home Movies Screening  –  Siobahn Hagan of DC Public Library’s Memory Lab and Suns Cinema will be holding an even made possible by the generosity of DC residents.
