Two community events take place this morning which could be of interest to locals.
Art Goes to the Dogs
There is the Dogs for the Arts Celebration at Magruder Park. Beginning at 9:30 a.m., the event tries, as the name suggests, to get your canine involved in high culture (and maybe some hijinks, too). There will be paw painting, a doggy costume contest, a dog and owner look alike contest and a doggy talent contest.
Dogs must be leashed and under their owner's control. If you are under 16 and want to bring your pooch down, you must be accompanied by an adult.
Hyattsville Elementary Celebrates Historic Milestone
Hyattsville Elementary School turned 95 this year. Today they are holding a bash to celebrate. Beginning at 10 a.m. at the school, located on 5311 43rd Avenue, the event will feature school alumni (including yours truly) reminiscing about school days past. Former City Councilor Doug Dudrow will also be showing his extensive collection of historic Hyattsville Elementary School photographs from throughout the years.
Following the speeches, there will be an international luncheon featuring foods from around the globe.
