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 from 1830 h on topics of particular interest to members of the DRA.

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.
