Guests gathered Sept. 16 at Dumbarton House to salute Trees for Georgetown and its steadfast supporters, Betsy Emes and her host committee. Funded by gifts and grants, volunteer group protects the trees that line the residential streets of D.C.’s oldest neighborhood. Part of the Citizens Association of Georgetown since 1989, Trees for Georgetown has planted thousands of trees, contracted watering services during drought periods and provided preventative maintenance for the neighborhood’s at-risk trees. Susan Gage Caterers provided the raw bar and passed hors d’oeuvres. Supporters departed with an appropriately logged Scout market tote.
