The barbershop quartet will perform at 1:00 p.m. Residents will present the radio play, “A St. Louis Scoop,” at 2:00 p.m.

Bartholomew House is home to 30 men and women. It is one of nine affordable communities for seniors and two family housing projects operated by Victory Housing in Montgomery and Prince George’s Counties and the District of Columbia.
