2021 Virtual Spring Gala

Join us for the CCHS 2021 Virtual Spring Gala

Party on the Porch!

In celebration of its 40th Anniversary, the Chevy Chase Historical Society is hosting its first-ever virtual Spring Gala, Party on the Porch!

Thursday, May 20, at 6:30 p.m.

Party on the Porch celebrates the porch, a prominent and beloved feature of so many Chevy Chase homes. Doug Kammerer, News4’s Chief Meteorologist and Chevy Chase resident, will join the fun as our neighborhood host. Architectural Historian Sandy Heiler will lead a virtual tour through the surprising history of the porch. Chevy Chase designers Katy Anderson, Sarah Hayes, and Deborah Scheck will demonstrate ideas for hosting a party on your porch.
