Dear District 1 Residents and Friends,


I hope you had a chance to catch at least some of the London Olympic Games these past few weeks.  I often found myself on the edge of my seat as our Team USA athletes took part in exhilarating competitions, showcasing the best of our athletic talent in swimming, beach volleyball, track, gymnastics - just to name a few.


We can be very proud that three of our Olympians - Katie Ledecky, Scott Parsons, and Julie Zetlin - call Bethesda home.  This Friday evening, I will be joined by Congressman Chris Van Hollen to honor these hometown heroes at a celebration at Bethesda Metro Center.


Celebration of Hometown Olympians 

Friday, August 24 - 5:30 PM

Bethesda Metro Center 


Many thanks to the Greater Bethesda-Chevy Chase Chamber of Commerce, the Bethesda Urban Partnership, the Bethesda-Chevy Chase Regional Services Center and Brookfield Properties for helping to organize this free event.  But most of all, thanks to our hometown Olympians for making us proud and representing our country so well!   


Hope to see you on Friday.
