News from Chevy Chase at Home


William Offutt, author of “Bethesda:  A Social History”, will share his wealth of knowledge about the community we think we know at the March 5th M&M.  A native of Montgomery County whose family has been in Maryland since the 17th century, Mr. Offutt taught  history and English in county junior high and high schools for thirty-four years.  Since retiring, in addition to researching and writing the comprehensive book about Bethesda, he has also co-authored “Montgomery County:  Centuries of Change”,  produced several novels, a county history for 4th graders, and written countless newspaper and magazine articles.   Join us at the Chevy Chase Village Hall from 2 to 4 PM on March 5th for this fascinating discussion of local history.
