President’s Corner

Tara Sakraida Parker
President, Citizens Association of Georgetown

When it comes to community, I believe that more is more — especially when times are tough.  Since 1878, CAG has been the place for Georgetowner’s to connect, engage and help their neighbors; our role is more important today than ever before.  With more resources, better communications and a historic increase in volunteers, a growing CAG will help all of us through these difficult times. 

I invite you to join us as a volunteer, to support our work, and to let us know where you think our community is struggling or thriving.Together, we are stronger; CAG is where we join forces for the good of our community. #GeorgetownTogether

I am confident that our future will be brighter than our very recent history of pandemic and strife.

CAG Report: Georgetown Together

Martin Luther King, Jr. said that “Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, ‘What are you doing for others?’” I couldn’t agree more; it is the reason I am so proud to be serving as president of the Citizens Association of Georgetown – an organization that is of our community and for our community. We are living through a time when it is difficult to know how to help our neighbors and our neighborhood. Since the start of the pandemic, we’ve been told to do nothing, to simply stay home....
