Special meeting on 15 July

Our next MADRA meeting on Wednesday July 15th will be a special one – our long-serving president Michael Bradley has stepped down, and we are now looking for a new president! MADRA has been active in Mernda since 2005, securing gas and sewerage connections for the then small township, and recently has organized the hugely successful 3rd annual Mernda Community Fair, as well as assisting with the Mernda Christmas Carols and the Mernda Diwali Festival. We also provide auspicing for local community groups. We are inviting applications for President. Applicants will be asked to give a relaxed and informal talk on what they can offer the Mernda community, and we are excited to hear from you! The only requirement is that you have a genuine desire to make a difference in your local community. We are also looking for normal members, and everyone is welcome to come along on the night to find out about MADRA and to see how you can be involved in making Mernda an even better place to live! If you’d like to be involved in your community but don’t know where to start, then this is the place to be. Additionally we are looking for a treasurer – no qualifications are required, just a willingness to put aside an hour or two each month to prepare a report on MADRA’s finances. The meeting will be held on Wednesday July 15th from 7pm to 8.30pm at the Mernda Villages Community Activity Center at 70 Mernda Village Dr. Our meeting are held in the meeting room. We thank Michael for his contribution to MADRA all these years and wish him a happy retirement!
