Independence Day Neighborhood ice cream social, July 4!

All neighbors are invited to the Independence Day ice cream social on Monday, July 4, beginning at 7:30pm at the Church of the Brethren, 300 N. Montague St.

A neighborhood tradition since 2002, the event is co-sponsored by BMCA and the Church. Free ice cream, toppings, and water are provided. Neighbors may choose to bring a lawn chair or blanket, other soft drinks, snacks, and mosquito repellent. Please do not bring fireworks or alcoholic beverages to the event. Many neighbors stay after the ice cream is gone to watch the fireworks above the National Mall, which typically begin around 9:15pm

If you would like to help at the event, please contact  Lee Dioso  at
