The Centretown Citizens' Community Association is holding its Annual General Meeting on Wednesday, 21 October 2009 at St. Theresa Church on Somerset and Cartier, just down the street from the regular meeting place, City Hall.
Doors open at 6:30pm, meeting starts promptly at 7pm.
Here are some photos of St. Theresa's:
While the agenda isn't yet available on the CCCA website, the AGM will include a Centretown Heritage Project presentation, celebrating 40 years of activity since the Centretown Community Association (sic) was founded in 1969. I have been coordinating interviews with people who were involved at the very beginning of the association in order to document the early days.
Following the CHP presentation will be a presentation by Ian Lee, PhD, Sprott School of Business and Michael Tiger, Economist, on the proposals for Lansdowne Park, which is certainly an issue affecting Centretowners.
Anyone who lives or owns a business or property in Centretown can become a member of the CCCA (Centretown is defined as bounded by Bronson, the Queensway, the Rideau Canal, and the Ottawa River) and vote at the AGM for only $5. You can also run for the Board of Directors.
Come out and support your local Community Association!
