FBWEV Attends GW Block Party

Block Party 2014On Sunday, October 19th, FBWEV members braved the winds and sudden cold to man a membership table at the annual George Washington University Block Party. This event is one way for the university and the organizations in the community to interface as long time neighbors introduced themselves to students that were new to the University and the District of Columbia. Food trucks, jazz bands and local entertainment helped to make the party a celebration of the old and new.
