2012 Flashback: Neighbors Worth Knowing, Part II December 27, 2012 by Niki Our neighbors spent the past year doing wonderful things, and they’ve shared their experiences with us. Paul Pearlstein is a “river rat” in his spare time. He shares his love of rowing with people on the Anacostia. Susan Crudgington is part of an organization that brings young Afghan women to the U.S. for education. Some neighbors let us tag along on their travels. Susan Crudgington took us fly fishing out West. Mary Beth Ray had terrific guides during a trip to Malta: Two former Maltese ambassadors who once lived across the street from her. Jan Buresh took her banking expertise to farmers in Ghana, and met some amazing people there. Annette Aburdene took us hiking in the otherwordly Dolomites. A couple of neighbors said goodbye. Holly Hankins wrote about her 26-year love affair with Chesapeake Street. Robin Schepper moved to Colorado and discovered that some of her new neighbors are getting a little too close for comfort. Robin was instrumental in getting more sidewalks built in Forest Hills. She urged us get out and use them. Forest Hills Connection is produced by volunteers, and supported by you. We appreciate your support – financial and otherwise. Here’s how to donate.
