The Georgetown Garden Tour gets its turn and includes grounds once owned by the Kennedys — eight private spots in all. Lots of real estate, of course. News on gateways, the primary election, Dumbarton Oaks. A look on the Press Club and its president, getaway to the Whitby in NYC, gifts for mom, Kitty Kelley Book Club, the social scene — and the loss of Betsy Cooley.
