WASHINGTON, D.C.—Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton (D-DC) will host the Stanley Cup in her congressional office on Wednesday, October 17, 2018, from 10:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m., in 2136 Rayburn House Office Building (First Floor).  Fans can arrive at Norton’s office beginning at 9:30 a.m. and will be admitted in groups of four.  Norton introduced a resolution congratulating the Washington Capitals for winning the 2018 Stanley Cup, the first championship in team history.

“The Stanley Cup has traveled around the world since the Caps’ epic victory in June, and it is time we welcomed the Cup to Capitol Hill,” Norton said.  “I am really pleased that the Cup is coming to Capitol Hill.  Having the Cup in the House, where every jurisdiction has a representative, will send the message that our local team has won a national championship.  That is good for D.C. statehood too!  We invite fans to visit our office to take the unique opportunity to see the trophy up close.”
