Join us for the spring edition of our Clean Waterways series where we’ll pick up and remove litter from as much of Anacostia Park as we can, sort it by material, and set it up to educate thousands of festival-goers the following day.
8:30 AM Registration
9:00 AM Welcome and safety talk
9:30 AM – 12:00PM Cleanup
— All equipment is provided, please wear closed-toe shoes and layered clothes that you don’t mind getting dirty.
— All ages are welcome, there are plenty of easy flat fields ideal for small children, as well as more challenging terrain and brush that catches lots of trash right by the water’s edge.
— Some parking is available along Anacostia Drive as well as along Aviation Drive. The site is just a 15 minute walk from Anacostia metro station via the parking deck there and Aviation Drive and there is a Bike Share station at Anacostia Rec Center within 10 minutes walk.

In Christy’s Shoes
DMV Sole Celebration
Please join OSUDC and In Christy’s Shoes on April 28th at the 2019 DMV Sole Celebration! In our effort to give back to the OSU community in the Greater Washington, D.C. Metro Area, OSUDC has teamed up with In Christy’s Shoes, a Columbus based charity, as a community partner. In Christy’s Shoes mission is to raise awareness and funds for programs that support women who are experiencing homelessness, unemployment, domestic abuse, substance abuse, human trafficking, and brain cancer.
Even though In Christy’s Shoes is Columbus based all of the funds raised at the DMV Sole Celebration stay in the DMV. They are distributed to Doorways for Women and Families, The Alliance of Creative Professional Women, and The Women’s Home. Additionally, In Christy’s Shoes will be providing scholarship funds to help a student from the DC metro area who is looking to pursue studies at OSU that align with their mission.
The DMV Sole Celebration is a wonderful event that combines shoe fashion and fundraising while celebrating the life of one woman who continues to inspire others to walk in their shoes with confidence, strength, and stability. Please take a few minutes to learn more about In Christy’s Shoes as this organization and its founders are a true inspiration. Use this link to purchase tickets.
April Happy Hour

OSUDC’s New Membership Method Is Here!
Recently The Ohio State Alumni Association unveiled a new method for alumni clubs and societies to collect membership dues. After a lot of careful consideration, OSUDC decided that this new method was beneficial both to the club, its current members, and all other alumni in the DC/Maryland/Virginia area. This new method will make your Club dues both tax deductible and count towards your OSUAA sustaining membership, which makes you eligible for football tickets and other great benefits. This new membership method is now in place! Click here for more information or to join/renew!
