This past December, the Board of the Foggy Bottom Association was surprised and grateful to receive a bequest from the estate of former FBA President Eleanor M. Becker.
The gift will allow the FBA to host a springtime event in honor of Ellie. Preliminary plans for such a celebration are underway.
Ellie was a force in the Foggy Bottom community. In addition to serving in FBA leadership positions, she published the original version of the Foggy Bottom News, which she also hand-delivered to recipients. She was involved in most of the major decisions made by the community, including the application for Historic District designation in 1987.
We are honored by Ellie's generosity.
