Newark Street Community Garden.

Georgetown Village(GV), is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization providing services and programs in Georgetown, Burleith, Hillandale, and nearby neighborhoods. GV was established to help our neighbors age in place by providing them with a variety of support services, educational opportunities, cultural and social programming. We provide trained and vetted volunteers and when necessary professional service providers to meet our members’ needs.
Georgetown Village is part of a growing network of similar communities nationwide, including many in the Washington, DC area, in which neighbors are helping neighbors. Our village represents the new face of aging-in-place that allows Village members to live full lives in their own homes with the assistance of their neighbors, in this way we create a caring, supportive, local community to help seniors remain safely and happily in their own homes.
Come be part of a caring, supportive community.
The Georgetown Village office recently moved to the Long & Foster building, and thanks to their generosity we are now located on the lower level of 1680 Wisconsin Avenue NW. The office is staffed by our Executive Director, Lynn Golub-Rofrano, and volunteers, Monday through Thursday, from 10 am - 6 pm. The office is not open on Federal Holidays. Be sure to call before you stop by in case we are out helping one of our members or enjoying some of our trips or social activities!

August Museum Trip-August 12th
Members of the Village are invited to a docent-led tour of an exhibition of work by Martin Puryear. The tour will take place on August 12th at 11:30 am at the Smithsonian American Art Museum at 8th and G Streets Northwest. Martin Puryear is an internationally known sculptor who was born and raised in Washington DC. The exhibition explores reoccurring forms across time and medium in Puryear’s sculptures, drawings, and prints. Although he is known primarily as a sculptor, Puryear considers his drawings and prints integral to his creative process. Beginning with some of his earliest drawings and prints that he made while serving in the Peace Corps in Africa, one can trace the evolution of his visual vocabulary across his career. Puryear is possibly best known for his intriguing large scale wood sculptures and his impeccable craftsmanship. The exhibition is organized in close collaboration with the artist and includes many works that have never before been shown. Two of Puryear’s major local monuments are:Bearing Witness (General Services Administration, Federal Triangle, 1994) and Vessel (1997-2002).
After the tour members can buy lunch at the cafe in the wonderful courtyard of the museum under the glass canopy designed by architect Norman Foster.
National Geographic Museum Get Together
August 17th @ 3pm , some of our members are getting together to visit the National Geographic Museum exhibit, The Greeks. They are inviting other GV members to join them to view the exhibit and then have a drink across the street at Quill bar at the Jefferson Hotel. Although there is no happy hour pricing, it will be fun to treat yourself to one of their handcrafted cocktails and enjoy GV members’ company. Call the office to RSVP and let us know if you are interested in sharing an Uber for transportation to the National Geographic Museum.
