Not Even Rain Could Stop Del Ray’s First “First Thursday” of 2009

Despite day long rain that alternated with periods of sunshine, Del Ray’s First “First Thursday” of 2009 went off as scheduled.  A few things were canceled but as soon as there was a break in the weather the sidewalk tables came out to welcome the dogs, kids, and baby carriages that soon followed.

Congressman Jim Moran was seen greeting former City Council member Justin Wilson and Larry Altenburg, immediate past president of the Del Ray Citizens Association (DRCA).

A Show of Hands welcomed visitors to their new location at 2103 Mt. Vernon; the Blueberry, an art gallery, was showing off their new space next door to St. Elmo’s; and the Neighborhood Pharmacy of Del Ray handed out information about their new space at 2204 Mt. Vernon Ave., coming June 2009.

I have to say, I am really excited about this new pharmacy.   They will offer free delivery in Del Ray, one refill date for all medications, and pet meds as well as human prescriptions.  When was the last time you shopped at a neighborhood pharmacy?  Just another reason to love living here.

Mark your calendar  – June 4 is our next “First Thursday.”

And if you want to know more about living in this great neighborhood, call me at 703.927.4554.
