Please note due to the July 4th holiday, there will be no recycling and yard debris pick up on Monday, July 4th. Recycling will instead be collected the next morning on Tuesday, July 5th, along with household trash. There will be NO yard debris pick up that week at all. Recycling should still be placed curbside.

The annual Fourth of July parade starts at 11 a.m. in front of 3807 Williams Lane. All Section residents, friends, family, and pets are welcome! The parade ends on Underwood Street (between Thornapple Place and Dalkeith) with a party including a water slide, moon bounces, and pony rides. This year we will also have hotdogs, burgers, and sausages on the grill. Food will be available starting at 11:30 a.m. The fun ends at 1:30 p.m.

Please email the Town Manager if you are planning to attend (preferably before June 30th) so we can have a general food count. However, if you find that you are available and have not rsvp'd, please come anyway. The more the merrier!

Established in 1922, Section 5 of the Village of Chevy Chase became an incorporated municipality on June 25, 1982. Section 5 is a small, quiet community of 227 houses and one restaurant. It is a town known for its tree-lined streets, porches, and friendly neighborhood atmosphere.

The section is administered by an elected five-member Village Council, members of which are elected for two (2) year terms of office. Elections take place in the spring at our annual meeting. There is also one paid part-time employee, the Town Manager, who acts as a liaison between the Council and residents.
