Where can one get a free antibody test?


Might anyone have suggestions for getting a free Covid antibody test? I would like that type of test as it would at least be one indication of whether or not my vaccine was effective in my individual case. It isn't entirely clear from the websites, but I suspect that the free tests that DC is offering are mostly PCR tests, and perhaps some Antigen testing, but not the antibody test. So I would be grateful if someone has further information about where to find an antibody test.

Hi -
I hope you are well! It is amazing how warmer weather, lighter evenings, and vaccines have completely changed my perspective these days. Things are looking up!
This summer, I will be leading a 100 Mile Wilderness Adventure and I wanted to share it with you! After years of hiking on my own, completing various outdoor safety courses and certifications, becoming a Registered Maine Guide, and dreaming of adventures I wanted to lead, I am so excited to finally be doing this. 
The "100 Mile Wilderness" is a section of trail in Maine that goes from Monson to Millinocket. It is the last 100 miles of the Appalachian Trail. I hiked it with my parents in 2017, alone (in 3-days!) at the end of my thru-hike in 2018, and countless times since.
All that to say, I *love* this section of trail and know it better than any other area I have hiked or run. I could not be more excited to be leading this hiking, yoga, and writing adventure there this summer with Jenny O'Connell (an amazing Maine-based outdoor writer).
We only have a few spots left but if you are interested or know anybody who might be, feel free to pass it along!
Let me know if you have any questions :)

Any bazaars or white elephant sales coming up?

Peter Brusoe

Dear Neighbors:

In my ongoing quest to Marie Kondo/Francis Assisi my life I have various things that have brought me joy, but I no longer need and was wondering if anyone knew of a good white elephant or bazaar that could use random knickknacks, everything from a Rhino Glass, clear vases, random coffee cups, and even bowls.

ISO Teen exercise opportunities



Looking ahead more to fall but I am curious if anyone has recommendations of good exercise groups or gyms for tweens/teens?
My 12yo isn't interested in formal sports but I would love for her to have a group or outlet for some fun exercise once in a while. She's also not interested in say running on her own. So nothing too intense, just something to get her moving and learning a bit about physical activity.   
It seems like a great business opportunity -- we have writing and math tutoring, yoga for little kids, etc. in the neighborhood; are there any personal trainers or gyms that have special programs for tweens/teens?
Any tips greatly appreciated!

Re: Sidewalk Palooza - Walk the neighborhood to identify sidewalks in need of repair


Many of us have done this in the past with Mayor Bowser’s team as we were laser focused on our senior population. After two-three years of walking the streets of Ward 3 giving the city lists of sidewalks and streets which were particularly dangerous for elderly residents to navigate, unfortunately this work was for naught as nothing was done with the data we collected. I would love to be opportunistic about this very worthy project but my experience has been there has been little to no follow-through on the city’s part.


- original message -

Here's a terrific idea from ANC Commissioner Erin Palmer (ANC 4B02) for a "Sidewalk Palooza" - walk-through of neighborhood streets to identify and call for sidewalk repairs where needed. The map below does not show any Sidewalk Palooza events set in Ward 3, but there's information in the message about how to set up one for anyone willing to take the lead.

-Peggy Robin

What Is Sidewalk Palooza? []

Every year DC launches a spring Potholepalooza event to rapidly identify and fix dangerous potholes. But while potholes get all the attention, our equally important sidewalks and pedestrian safety needs go neglected. The city's own data shows that the average pothole 311 request is fulfilled in 3 business days. Sidewalks are 270 days.

It's time to draw some attention to this discrepancy and the way that it makes life harder and less safe for everyone--especially people with disabilities, parents with strollers, and seniors. So let's come out together to document our neighborhoods' pedestrian infrastructure needs and build some community along the way.

Join a Sidewalkpalooza event in your area from June 4th-11th! Because sidewalks need love too!

Go to the map at and click on any walking figure to see the time and place that neighbors will be documenting sidewalks in need of repair.

Don’t see an event in your neighborhood? You can lead it! It’s easy and we can walk you through it. Just send us an email at and we can get you set up.

Re: Hearst Park Construction - No Reliable Information on status and delays

George Beronio

Hopefully we’ve all put in 311 calls for these items.
At  ... or literally call “311.”
I know, I can hear some drinks ejecting through noses out there. But hey: it’s the process. It won’t always be a quick resolution, but it WILL get some kind of action. And for those inclined to follow up through other channels, it’s a lot easier to get action on a documented issue than to hope that the right person reads the listserv. Especially true when there are multiple tickets on the same issue.

May I ask a straightforward question that has been broached in previous messages: Why is water, seems like fresh water, being pumped 24/7 onto Quebec Street? This seems wrong and a environmental degradation.
