Council Member Tommy Wells and Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton both shared inspiring words of community spirit and holiday cheer.
Kathy Didden captivated the audience with her enthusiasm and joy for Capitol Hill and the community her late husband, George Didden, dedicated so much of his life to.

People cheered as the blue and white lights illuminated the dark winter night.
