Norton’s Annual Senior Legislative Day on Monday at New U.S. Coast Guard Building Will Feature Congressional Update, Entertainment, and Wellness Exercise


WASHINGTON, D.C. – July 20, 2015 – (RealEstateRama) — Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton (D-DC) will host her annual 2015 Senior Legislative Day on Monday, July 20, 2015, from 10:00 a.m. – 11:30 a.m. at the first federal agency to be built east of the Anacostia River, the newly-constructed U.S. Coast Guard’s St. Elizabeth West Campus (2699 Firth Sterling Ave. SE), which was built as a result of Norton’s efforts.

Seniors from wellness centers throughout the District will discuss pending bills and other congressional actions with the Congresswoman. The seniors will enjoy a musical performance by Kristal Hansley, a trained classical singer who works as a caseworker in Norton’s office. Hansley studied classical voice and piano at the Patricia F. Robinson Music studio in Brooklyn, New York. She will perform Porgy Bess Summertime and Bach/Gournard’s Ave Maria in F Major. The seniors will also participate in an exercise presentation with William Yates, the Associate Coordinator of Older Adults and Senior Wellness at Hayes Senior Wellness Center. Special greetings will be offered by Coast Guard Lieutenant Commander Jonathan Schafler. Norton holds Senior Legislative Day at a different location each year to take seniors to sites in the District where some may not have been. Among recent sites have been Arena Stage, the African American Civil War Museum, Dunbar High School, and the Capitol Visitors Center.
