"Thank you to the Glen Echo Partnership for Arts and Culture for this great honor. It is especially meaningful to me during these challenging times to celebrate Glen Echo Park’s extraordinary support for arts, educational and cultural programs, which give us hope for a vibrant and more enlightened future.


I look forward to celebrating with you all and to viewing the beautifully restored Dentzel Carousel, which is an emblem of the joy that Glen Echo Park brings to so many of us."
