When I first moved to Brookland I started attending Brookland Neighborhood Civic Association (BNCA) meetings. Soon, I found myself taking an active role as treasurer and helping out with the website. Though I am no longer an officer, I still try to keep up with the BNCA’s activities and attend meetings when I can. I have found my membership to be rewarding for multiple reasons – I have met a lot of great neighbors, gotten involved in community events and stayed abreast of neighborhood developments, not bad for $10 a year! BNCA memberships are based on the calendar year, so now is the time to renew or begin your membership. The next BNCA meeting will be on Tuesday, January 21st at 7:00 pm. Please see this month’s meeting agenda below. The meeting will be held at the Howard Divinity School, 1400 Shepherd Street NE in the Faculty Dining Room (Basement level, room 78).
