5 Things to Know Today: Nov. 1
The Welcome-to-November edition: How much snow do you think Chevy Chase Patch will get in November? Take the (anonymous) Patch poll and share your predictions!
Good morning, Chevy Chase! It's Tuesday, Nov. 1, and here are five things to know today:
1.) The weather should be nice for the next few days—sunny and in the upper-50s to low-60s. But, how much snow do you think we'll get this month? Take the (anonymous) Patch poll at the bottom of the page and share your predictions.
2.) Have too much Halloween candy in the house? Donate leftover candy (by Nov. 5) to MoverMoms, who are sending candy to troops stationed overseas. Candy drop-off locations are listed in the announcement.
3.) The Chevy Chase Open Space Committee will meet at 7 p.m. at the Chevy Chase Village Hall (5906 Connecticut Ave.) to discuss the design of the park at Western Avenue and Grove Street. Read a recap of last week's design meeting and vote in the Patch poll on what amenity you'd most like to see in the park.
4.) The Town of Chevy Chase's Purple Line Mitigation Advisory Group will meet at the Town Hall (4301 Willow Ln.) at 7 p.m.
5.) Today in history: Eighty-three years ago, the "Law on the Adoption and Implementation of the Turkish Alphabet" came into force in Turkey, and a 29-letter Roman alphabet replaced the version of the Arabic alphabet that had been used previously. Because Arabic is a language of many vowel sounds while Turkish is noted for its consonants, the new alphabet was better-suited to the language.
