First jam session
The new semester of Ageless Grace low-impact exercise classes is underway. Join us at Magruder Park Recreation Center, 3911 Hamilton Street, from 10 to 11 a.m. Fridays. The class is just $2 per participant. The exercise is chair-based, and nearly anyone can take part and benefit from increased flexibility and strength. Please call our city to register at 301-985-5058. Hope to see you there!

Three changes in the City Charter were approved by the mayor and City Council. First, the three-member Board of Elections Supervisors would be appointed and serve a four-year term. Next, the detailed system regarding municipal boundaries was amended so city limits could be changed by ordinances. Finally, under the new charter provision, ordinances could not be voted upon for at least 20 days after being proposed. Our Northwestern High School band was not only invited to participate in Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York, but had the honor of escorting Santa Claus.
