A Few Thursday Morning Quick Items: Channel Inn Closing, Job Fair, Tiber Island

The Channel Inn, along with Pier 7 restaurant will be closing for good on March 31 to become the temporary headquarters of the construction team of The Wharf and the temporary home of the Capital Yacht Club.  Ahead of the closing date, Ward 6 Council member Tommy Wells will host a Legacy Celebration this Saturday from 7-9pm.  After the Channel Inn and Pier 7 closes, everything will be sold at auction on April 21. 

The DC Job Fair will be held tomorrow at Arena Stage, in partnership with Ward 6 Council member Tommy Wells' office. This will be the third job fair held at Arena since the first was held in conjunction with its production of Good People in early 2013. Recruiting companies onsite March 28 will include Athena Consulting, Big Bus Tours, Clark Construction, CLP Resources, Forest City Washington, Keany Produce, Safeway, Specialty Hospital of Washington, Trusted Solutions, United States Secret Service, U.S. Army and U.S. Postal Service. Non-profit employment organization Jobs Have Priority (JHP) will also be onsite to assist attendees with the employment search and application process.A full list of recruiting companies can be found here.

A power struggle is underway at Tiber Island, as chronicled in The Washington Post. It stems from the renovations that have occurred in the property and disagreements with how the community should be run, which is located adjacent to The Wharf.

Where is Bufus? No one has been out there for the last two weeks and we are worried and don't know how to find out if Ron, Bufus and Karin are ok.
