Volunteer Services

"It was the right time to join
Georgetown Village."

"My husband Guy had been diagnosed with Alzheimer disease and I was wondering how I would cope with this. As Guy’s condition progressed, I realized what a great help the Village was. Volunteers did grocery shopping for us, yard work, handiwork around the house, provided transportation, etc. In these circumstances, to know that the Village was a phone call away was a tremendous morale booster and helpful relief.


Then Guy passed away, peacefully, at home.  

For Guy we joined the Village. Now, of course, Georgetown Village is still here, for me. I feel the experience was rewarding and… priceless!" - MRdL

“Contested Histories”


with Nancy Hirshbein, Museum Docent and

Founder of Dial-a-Docent


History might seem pretty straightforward - dates, places, and names.  But the stories we tell about historical events are anything but.  History is often deliberately obscured, shaped and sometimes downright denied to serve particular purposes.  Using artist Mark Bradford’s monumental work “Pickett’s Charge” as well as works by Titus Kaphar, Hirshhorn museum docent Nancy Hirshbein will lead us in a discussion of some of the ways in which artists interrogate historical narrative. This subject has particular resonance as we look toward ways that these historical narratives can shape world view. The interactive presentation will last approximately 45 minutes, followed by a question and answer period.

DC CAN - DC Covid Alert Notice 

Last week DC went live with a system to automatically track when people may have been exposed to individuals who test positive for Coronavirus. But it only works if people actually use it. The good news, though, is that if you follow these simple steps, you’ve done all you need to do. The system works by sitting in the background and logging whenever you come near someone else using the system. If any of those people later test positive, you will get a notification.  
There are two different sets of instructions, depending on whether you have an iPhone or an Android-based phone.

  Click here for more information, and instructions to install the app.
