A Special Honor from Washingtonian Magazine

Washingtonian Luncheon
What a thrill it was for me and my wife Diane Baker to join nine others in being named Washingtonians of the Year 2019. The award, now in its 48th year, is sponsored by Washingtonian Magazine and honors people whose “hard work, creativity, innovation, and commitment” help to make the Washington, D. C. area a great place to live. That certainly describes Diane, as well as our commitment as a couple to give back to the community. During the awards luncheon, the honorees gathered for a photo.
