Today, ACC signed a contract for the ACC 2018 Annual Boat Ride. This relationship with Odyssey & Spirit Cruises promises to be a new experience:
New vessel, new all-can-eat buffet menu, enhanced experience, more amenities, embarking at DC's Southwest Waterfront with shuttle service from the Southwest Metro, same low price!
We can now announce that ACC's 2018 Annual Boat Ride, featuring the same networking, entertainment, and celebration of our cherished local waterway, the Anacostia River in the Year of the Anacostia, is under new management. Please save the date of Saturday, October 6, 2018 for the boat ride, boarding at 10:30 a.m. with the cruise portion launching at 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
Tickets sell fast, so make your reservation at the same old price of $100, with checks payable to the Anacostia Coordinating Council, 2401 Shannon Pl SE, Washington, DC 20020. (right now we are confining ticket sales to those made by check). Your contribution is partially tax-deductible and helps us fund our information sharing, gathering, and, most importantly, collaboration on projects and initiatives with you, our member individuals and organizations to strengthen our roots and connection with the community from the ground up. See you on the River!
On March 1, 2018, ACC's Executive Director Philip Pannell appeared on the Kojo Nnamdi Show along with Ward 8 Councilmember Trayon White, speaking about the legacy of DC's "Mayor for Life", Marion S. Barry, Jr., in light of the unveiling of the 8-foot bronze statue of its dedicatee on Pennsylvania Avenue NW at a corner of the Wilson Building.
