The FCCA is a membership-based organization funded solely by dues and donations. Meetings are open to everyone, though only members may vote. We meet six times a year — January, February, April, June, September, and November — at 7PM on the third Wednesday of the month in the Hardy Recreation Center at 4500 Q Street NW. There is on-street parking and rides can be arranged, if needed.

A volunteer elected Board meets monthly to identify issues of concern, to collect and disseminate information (via the newsletter, the neighborhood list serve, this web site, and email alerts) and to plan the bi-monthly general meetings at which the Board can gauge community opinion on current and future issues. Small committees meet as needed to work on specific issues and to plan popular community events — picnics, Halloween parades, community yard sales – that help build neighborhood cohesiveness — and have been doing so since 1928.

The Association’s informative newsletter, delivered by FCCA volunteers free to all households in the area, informs the community about upcoming events and meetings and provides background information on issues of interest and concern.
