The Deakin Residents Association will be holding our Annual General Meeting at the Bridge Club, Duff Street, Deakin. The date for the meeting is 20th November at 6:30pm (1830h).
The DRA is honoured to have Chris Steel MLA, (Minister for Transport and City Services; Community Services and Facilities ; Multicultural Affairs; ACT Government and Canberra) attending as the guest speaker at our Annual General Meeting. He has undertaken to talk topics of particular interest to members of the DRA. These include the Light Rail proposal, the potential impact on existing bus services and travel times between Woden and Civic.
ADOPT-A-PARK – COMMUNITY GRANTS PROGRAM
DRA has submitted an application for support under the Adopt a Park program that seeks to facilitate the formation of a volunteer group within the DRA in the upkeep and maintenance of the park. Our hope is that the funding will lead to increased community use of the park; and, contribute to the enhancement of Canberra’s reputation as a ‘garden city’. We will ask the Minister at our AGM how our application is going.
