DONATE

Many residents have yet to donate to the block party.  The block party depends on resident and guest contributions and at this time it is questionable if we have raised enough to cover our costs.  It is suggested that each household donate at least $30 and have all guests donate $15 (don’t forget to have them bring something for the potluck as well).  Please donate TODAY so a few people don’t get stuck with the large bill.

You can make payment online with your credit card at the Make a Donation tab. Or, you may drop off a check (payable to Duddington Block Association) or cash to 119 Duddington.  Please make sure you donate NOW if you have not done so already!

FINAL ITEMS NEEDED

Please email us at duddingtonplace@gmail.com if you have a grill you can let us use for the hotdog lunch or if you have an empty coffee can for the pig cooker.  Also, if you know of anyone who would like to purchase the the pig cooker let us know.

CARS

All cars must be moved by Friday evening or they will be towed by order of the police. We don’t want to tow anyone’s car, so please don’t forget to move your car.

Duddington Block Party Less Than a Week Away!

June 8, 2009

The ponies are chomping at the bit.
The firemen are on call.
The T-shirts are ordered.
The PigKiln 3000 is under construction.
The kids are practicing the hoola-hoop.
And, the DJ is tuning up.

Are you ready for the
40th Annual Duddington Block Party Next Saturday June 13th!!!

Reminders:
If you have not already made your contribution (goal of at least $30 per household plus $15 per guest), please drop off a check (payable to Duddington Block Association) to Michele Piquet at 119 Duddington. Or pay right here. We received very few donations so far and without a considerable increase in donations we may have to cut some events from the day. DONATE NOW!

DC street cleaners will clean our block on Friday night (June 12th), but they won’t be able to clean the streets if there are cars in the way. All cars must be moved by Friday at 5pm.  Please Remember that the Block Assoc. is not providing alcohol this year due to DC regulations.
