May 6, 2017 9am to 1pm - It’s a Pruning Party!!!
The Goal: Trim those out-sized azaleas to a uniform four feet and reveal the fountain once again.
All are welcome! Gardeners and non-gardeners! Come to the Circle and with many hands, we will make short work of transforming the azaleas.
Please bring: A hand tool for pruning (but not a shears) and your sun hat.
Look for the crossing guard to help you in and out of the Circle.
This event is a community service project organized by a Venture Scout from Crew 255 of Chevy Chase and is co-sponsored by Friends of Chevy Chase Circle and the National Park Service.
CHEVY CHASE CIRCLE, at the intersection of Connecticut and Western Avenues and four other streets, is a traffic circle like none other:

- It is a gateway to the Nation’s Capital and historically, the 1890 gateway to the new suburb of Chevy Chase, Maryland
- It spans the District-Maryland line
- Its fountain was dedicated by an Act of Congress in 1933
