VOX POPULI • BY ANNE SIMPSON SUPLEE
Several years ago, inspired by beloved Takoma Park activist Dean Hoge, Anne Simpson Suplee wrote a fight song for Takoma to the tune of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s iconic “Oklahoma.” Her anthem debuted at the 2010 Azalea Awards, which are hosted each spring by the Takoma Foundation and the Takoma Voice in celebration of the everyday heroes of Takoma Park. Now Suplee has released a video tribute to Dean Hoge and Takoma.
